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.

The Official 2015 TBR Pile Challenge


I joined this last year and it was by far my favourite challenge!  I usually don't like reading from lists but this little 12 book list was really fun to mark off and finally read books I've had and wanted to read for ages.  I'm keeping the books short this year with a couple of exceptions since I'm giving myself a couple of other book-a-month type challenges.  Basic rules.  12 books with 2 alternates.  Must be copyright 2013 or earlier.  For more information and to sign up go here.

My master list of books follows and will be updated with links in real time:
