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.

And the Winner is ......

Today's lucky winner of Flute's Journey: The Life of a Wood Thrush by Lynne Cherry is ........

#12 ...... Mystica

Asked what her favourite bird was, Mystica replied "My favourite bird is the woodpecker." Congratulations! I will be emailing you shortly.

We had several woodpeckers and robins, cardinals, lots of hummingbirds, etc. and even *my* favourite the blue jay showed up a couple of times. What surprised me though was everyone stayed with birds indigenous to North America. When I asked the question I had envisions of toucans, penguins, kookaburras or peacocks! Does that mean that when it comes down to it we really appreciate more the small things which we already have at home than the grandeur to be found in far away places? Hmmmmm .......

You can read my review of Flute's Journey here. Or click on the picture to purchase.

Come back tomorrow for the chance to win another book!
