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 Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge - FINISHED


I have so many books on my ereaders and so many of them come from Netgalley or Edelweiss that I was pledging to myself to spend more time e-reading this year.  Then I stumbled upon this challenge and thought, yes!  A challenge to keep me in line.  Now I want to read more than this but I'm going to set my goal low so I don't feel pressured.  I'm thinking 1 per month so I'll sign up for the second level of 10 books and hope to level up from there.  I'm self imposing a no graphic novels rule because if I included those then that's all that would be included here and my purpose wouldn't be served!  For more information and to sign-up click here
