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.

DVD Break: Transformers



Transformers - (2007) - (DVD) - (own) - This is the first movie and ds and I have both seen it more than once.  We originally saw it in the theatre and the whole family thought it was spectacular; the big screen is definitely the place to watch this one for full effects.  We all went to see #2 in the theatre but I was underwhelmed, the guys liked it though and for number 3 I stayed home and the guys said it wasn't that great but they still enjoyed it.  So the best thing about this is the Transformers themselves; the special effects are fantastic and I just love every moment they are onscreen.  There is lots of humour and we laughed and had a good old time with this, not stellar, but simply fun! sci-fi/action movie.  After watching it ds decided that he did not want to donate it but would rather keep it with his movie collection for future viewing in case the desire should arise.  Rated PG-13 for the language used, needlessly coarse, but mostly the "tamer" curse words.
