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.

RIP: Brian Jacques

The author of the Redwall series has died! He was only 71 and died of a heart attack. His final Redwall book will be published posthumously in May.

Obituary Note: Brian Jacques


  1. That's sad. I haven't read as much by him as I would like, but I have planned to for a while!

  2. Same here. I read about the first seven or so Redwall books (I know for sure I read past the first two trilogies) then just fell off reading them, not for any particular reason. I haven't read any of his other books at all. It was such a shock to hear he'd died.
