Welcome

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.

Countries, States & Provinces 2011 Update

Here are my stats on reading around the world during 2011.

Canada - 11 provinces/territories - as of Dec. 31, 2011

This is a change of 0 from 2010, I still have NWT and PEI left.  I'll get these finished this year; I already have my NWT book chosen.  And I am not reading an LM Montgomery for PEI.

USA - 40 States - as of Dec. 31, 2011

This is an increase of 4 from 2010.  Obviously I've read all the popular states and am going to have to look up which ones I'm missing and pay attention to where books are set.  Now how many states are there? 50 or 52? Something tells me 50 states and 52 cards in a deck.  Let me google ... Answer is 50 states plus Washington DC.

Countries of the World - 51 countries - as of Dec. 31, 2011

This is an increase of 19 from 2010.  I started paying attention to where books were set and picking books with exotic locations on purpose.  Doing well here, will continue to do so.
