A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

October Random Read

As selected by my readers by poll, my October book for the Random Reading Challenge will be:

Testimony by Anita Shreve

It won by one point, running neck in neck with The Flying Troutmans the whole way. I'm happy with the results, over the two I would have picked Testimony myself as I've wanted to read one of Shreve's books for a long time, but The Flying Troutmans would have had the added bonus of counting towards the Canadian Book Challenge, as well.

Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll!
