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.

2015 Cloak & Dagger Mystery Reading Challenge - FINISHED



One of my favourite genres and probably the one I can lose myself in the most.  I haven't been reading as many I'd like the last couple of years so I'm going to try and improve on that but won't set my goal too high to start. The sign-up is here. and the very basic rules are:

- The challenge will run from Jan 1, 2015 – Dec 31, 2015.- All novels including short story collections count but must be 100 pg+


10 books = Amelia Peabody
