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.

Clocks, Cogs and Mechanisms Reading Challenge 2012 FINISHED

eta: Officially Finished my level today but will continue to add books to the list until the end of the year, when the challenge ends.

eta: Well, I tried to update my fourth book read for the challenge and I'm getting a denied message that the blog is open only to invited readers only!

This is a good challenge for me as I always seem to read a few steampunk books every year, with that increasing yearly.  This challenge is hosted by Sarcastic Muse and again runs for the entire year of 2012.  Old and new steampunk is allowed.  Sign-ups are here.

These are the levels:

Brass Gears: Read 1-3 steampunk books
Flight goggles: 4-6 books
Button-up boots: 7-12 books
Clockwork Corset: 13+ books

I'll sign-up for Brass Gears (1-3 books) and then hope to work my way up the levels by years end.  But 1-3 will definitely be doable!

Here's my list of books read:
