Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Catholic, with Asperger's, who reads and writes as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read.

I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to mystery thrillers, Catholic theology, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction & Victorian fiction and non-fiction, but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that, both fiction and non-fiction. I have a teensy fascination with macabre non-fiction books about death and anything about insane asylums.

I also tend to post a lot of reviews of juvenile/teen books, with a nod towards what parents can expect to find that might or might not be objectionable.

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

A to Zed Challenge III (End of Year Post)

Only a few more days to go and I don't see me filling in the missing letters at this point so I'm posting my official finishing post (with the right to edit if I do miraculously read a missing letter within the next 3 days).

I don't officially participate in this challenge now. I did the first year but every year since I just like to play along and see how I do without actually trying to get all the letters, (meaning I don't read books just so they will fill in letter on the list), I just fill them in as I go along. This year I did my best ever with a surprise December add of a title beginning with Q!

2008 4 missing authors (Q, U, X, Z) and 3 missing titles (X, Y, Z).
2009 3 missing authors (Q, X, Z) and 2 missing titles (Q, X).
2010 2 missing authors (U, Z) and 1 missing title (X).
