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.

Top Ten Tuesday


This week's list ask for the top ten bookish people you would like to meet.  My list will be in no particular order, just as I think of them off the top of my head and I'm *not* going to include dead people.

1.  Scott Hahn (let's talk conversion!)

2. Rick Geary (have I got some ideas for your crime books and lets not stop the Victorian series, ok?)

3. Joss Whedon (he does book stuff too!) (Angel, Firefly or Dr. Horrible, let's talk novels & graphics)

4. Michael Coren (politics and religion, scrumptious discussion!)

5. Mo Hayder (where do these twisted ideas come from and let me tell you about this dream I had)

6. Karin Slaughter (why, oh why, did you kill Jeffrey and not Sarah?  Then you could have had two ongoing series, Grant County & Will Trent.  Snivelling Sarah would be out of my life and we could explore Lena to our hearts content!)

7. Dean Koontz (let's talk about how your return to the Faith affected your writing as the themes are so obviously present to a Catholic)

8. Ruth Beechick (what are your suggestions on helping my autistic son get beyond a Gr. 2 reading level?)

9. Fr. Robert Barron ( I love you and am such a fangrrl! Write more books and group studies.)

10.  David Sinden of The Beastly Boys (My son loves your books so much.  Thank you!  Please write more on this level that he will like now that he is getting older but still reading at a low level.  Let's talk about writing for boys!)
