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.

Looking to join a couple to new challenges

Anybody have any suggestions for me? I only have one challenge on the go now. The Mystery & Suspense challenge. I have a few criteria to join a challenge:

1. must run all year (end in Dec.)

2. must be a type of book I already read. (ie I officially finished the ARC, graphic novel & Canadian challenges so far this year. )

3. must be a decent amount of books (at least 12+, preferably more) so I don't look like the obsessive overachiever that I am. LOL


  1. This blog does its best to keep track of all the reading challenges circulating around:

  2. Thanks Kailana! I know about that site and will take a look at it. Was just hoping someone would come along name a few and I'd get excited, join them and save myself having to hunt through that site looking for one myself. LOL!
