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 Elizabeth Taylor

Truly the world has lost the last great actress of an era. An era of movies that will never be made again. An era of acting that will never be equaled. The most beautiful woman in the world in her youth, the girl with the violet eyes. Elizabeth Taylor died at age 79 today after a life filled with illnesses, and finally succumbing to congestive heart failure.


  1. I was very sad when I heard this. She was such a beautiful and talented actress in her day. She will definitely be missed!

  2. So sad. I must watch a movie by her in memory!
