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: Top Books of 2011

This week is a REWIND, which means we get to pick a list that has already been done that we didn't get a chance to do or would like to re-do.  Since I just joined a few weeks back, this is easy enough for me.  I decided to do Top Ten Books I Read in 2011.  I never did an official list last year as I just didn't have time to get round to it and then it was like March, so who cared by then?  Now with a good years reflection, we shall see what stands out!

In no particular order:

1. The Stand by Stephen King (5/5) 
3. Daytripper by Fabio Moon & Gabriel Ba (5/5)
4. The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry (5/5)
5. The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan (5/5)
6.  Story of a Soul: the Autobiography of the Little Flower by St. Therese of Lisieux (5/5) 
7. Mercy by Jussi Adler-Olsen (5/5)
8. The Tiffin by Mahtab Narsimhan (5/5)
9. The Whicharts by Noel Streatfeild (4/5)
10. Saints in Limbo by River Jordan (5/5)
