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.

First Book of the Year 2014


Today over @ Book Journey, a bunch of us are announcing our first book we've decided to start 2014 off with.  My decision was very easy as I always start every year with a Stephen King book.  I have been working on project of (re)reading his books in chronological order for the past several years and last finished Danse Macabre near the end of 2013.  I'm firmly set in King's '80s years now and the next book published was 1981's Cujo.  I read this back in 1981 when I was 13 and have been looking forward to the re-read.  It's also nice that this is a short one.  One year I had to start off with The Stand!  This is the copy I will be reading:


And this is the edition I owned as a teen:
