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.

ARC Reading Challenge 2011

Another year and I'll be participating in Teddy Rose's ARC Challenge again. Though I will be requesting less arcs this year than in the past I still have lots to catch up on so will be going for the Platinum Level of 30+ books. I will be posting a list of all my ARCs on hand some time before my first Monday Books in the Mail post of the new year.


  1. I just signed up for this and realized that I have 29 ARC's on hand already to complete! Good luck in the challenge!

  2. I just only signed up for the South Asian challenge.
