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.

Aug. 15: The Assumption of Mary

Gentle Woman, Silent Light


  1. Goodness, that gave me chills.

    I haven't thought of that song, and certainly not sung it, in years.

    Probably the last time was when I was in high school (which happened to be called The Academy of Mary Immaculate so you can see why we might have sung it).

    That has taken me right back to my school days and our old stone chapel and girls in blue school uniforms.

    Thank you for reminding me.

  2. Beautiful isn't it? It is my favourite Marian hymn! We sing it at Mass whenever it is a celebration of the Blessed Virgin. Glad to have reminded you, of something good, I hope!
