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.

2014 Horror Reading Challenge - DNF



Horror used to be one of my favourite genres and I don't read as much of it as I used to but I make up for that by getting my fix from many of the horror graphic novels I read.  I am however, doing my Stephen King project (look in the sidebar), and after reading Danse Macabre in 2013 I've added a lot of horror books and authors to the tbr making this challenge perfect for me.  I'm really looking forward to getting back into this genre more, but I'm going to put a self-imposed ban on including graphic novels for this challenge or else it would all be GN's since I *do* read a lot of of horror graphic novels.  I'm going to make my goal obtainable by choosing the first level "Running Scared" but hope to work my way up to at least the next level.  For more information and to sign up click here.

Post reviews here

Jan.1-Dec. 31 (2014) Goal:  5 books

THIS IS THE ONLY CHALLENGE I DID NOT COMPLETE IN 2014.
