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.

Graphic Novels Challenge 2012 - FINISHED

NOTE:  I am officially finished this challenge having completed the required 12 books, however I will continue to record and post my books read for the rest of the year as the challenge encourages us to do just that.

I'm participating once again in this challenge but with one new difference I'M THE NEW HOST!  I'm so excited to be running this challenge which is dear to my heart and follows one of my favourite addictions.  I'm keeping everything the same as usual except I've changed the goal to read 12 books during the year.  If you read more than 12 you are more than welcome to continue posting to the blog throughout the year.

Come join the fun and sign up here.
