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 the books I read.

I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to
mystery thrillers, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction, Victorian fiction and nonfiction, Catholic theology and short story anthologies; but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that. 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.

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

Random Reading Challenge Finished

I've finished the Random Reading Challenge. This Challenge took place over a year and I chose to read a book every month and spread it out over the whole year. I really enjoyed having a random number picked for me and then going to count out what my book was going to be. Each month I was so excited to read my book. It was a fun little thrill! These are the books I read and I'll be watching to see if the challenge will continue for another year because if it does, I'll be there!
