Welcome

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.

Happy Father's Day!

Stan, World's Best Dad

Happy Father's Day, Dad! I'm so lucky that you are my Dad in so many ways. I had the best childhood and am thankful for everything you and mum sacrificed to make sure Michelle and I were never in want. You never gave up on me while I made stupid mistakes and were there with open arms when I came crying back. Thank you for the way you accept me, now that we know about my Asperger's. You're love and understanding is firm ground I can always stand on. I always speak about you to others with pride and get responses like "You're dad sounds like a really nice guy" or "You're dad must be a very special man." and I respond that "yes, he is." I love you very much and wish you the best of Happy Father's Days. Wish I could be with you. But I'll see you again in October. All my love, from your little girl who has a little curl right in the middle of her fore'ead.
