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: The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven (2010)

The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven - 2010 - DVD - TV Documentary - Watched at friend's house
Absolutely inspiring!  A small group of us watched this and cried and rejoiced.  The boy was almost decapitated and survived at 6 years old, is paralyzed from the neck down now but his life is amazing.  He went to heaven while he was in a coma and describes that experience so beautifully.  His family accept the miracle in their lives and of Alex's journey but they don't make it the focus of Alex's life.  They have other children and try to lead as normal a life as possible.  It is an amazing story of the community's outreach to the family in their time of need, the response of of other Christians in the emergency/police/medical field during this horrific time and the grace of God at work in a family's life making a tragedy become the positive turning point in all their lives.  Twelve year old Alex was so impressive, he is so genuine and the face of Jesus just shines through him.  An amazing story and must watch.  It really gives you a perspective on your own life.
