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.

Canadian Book Challenge 4

Woohoo! Another year of Canadian reading is over and a new one begins! The Canadian Book Challenge 4 runs from July 1 2010 - Jun. 30 2011. You must read 13 Canadian Books, eh. I am extremely thrilled to have won the grand prize The Bannock Baker's Dozen (a pack of 13 books featuring one from each province or territory).

I have no special rules I'm giving myself except that the author must be Canadian by birth or residence. In a few circumstances I will allow a book if the illustrator is Canadian.

My list is in the side bar on the right.
