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.

Investigation Discovery Unsolved Murders, Mysteries & Crimes August/September 2015 Magazine

Investigation Discovery Unsolved Murders, Mysteries & Crimes August/September 2015 Magazine, Consultant: Joe Kenda
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Magazine, 100 pages
Publication: August 2015 by Media Lap Publishing


Great magazine on the newsstands right now (July-Sept 2015) dealing with what Investigation Discovery does best. Nothing deep here. Just a two-page spread on each case. Mostly murders, some serial with a few bank robberies and jewel heists thrown in for good measure. Pretty much all take place in the US but the heists range from Japan to the Bahamas. I read this topic a lot and was pleasantly surprised at the number of lesser-known cases that were included in here and even some I hadn't heard of. There is also a strength in curious missing persons cases which are still current and this is a good vehicle for putting their pictures back out there with contact numbers. Some of these cases are quite bizarre and yes, all the ones you'd expect to find are in here too, but overall a very good cross mix selection for all readers whether your well-read on the topic or not. It's nice to have a big glossy like this for a change rather than scrolling through the images on Pinterest. LOL
