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.

Middle Grade Book Challenge

I've decided to join the Middle Grade Book Challenge this year since I normally read so many books that fit in this category anyway. It is being hosted over at Cindy's Love of Books this year and the rules are simple enough. Read 12 - 25 books aimed at ages 8-12 from Sept. 2010 - Aug. 2011. I'll be keeping track on my sidebar to the right and on my Master Challenge List which you can find the link to on the right as well but here is the link to the current 2010 Master Challenge List. Hope to see you over there!


  1. I'm glad you decided to join. Looking forward to reading your reviews!

  2. I am so happy that you decided to join the MG challenge. Looking forward to your reviews.

    BTW don't forget to come back to the original Sept post to share your links so that we can go and read them.
