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.

Cybils Panelist

Well, I am so grateful to have been selected to be on the Graphic Novels Round 1 panel again this year for the Cybils Award. This means I will be part of the team that reads all (or as many as possible) of the nominated GNs and then we will have to whittle them down to 5 books to pass on to the Round 2 judges who will then select the winner. Last year I had a blast. It was a lot of fun, but also a ton of work (more than I had expected) but well worth the experience. The dialogue between team members make this such a rewarding experience and I am thrilled to be a part of the Cybils again for my second year.

Start thinking of your nominations as the online nominating will go live on Oct. 1 through Oct. 15. Looking forward to to nominating myself!
