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.

Watching: Murder: No Apparent Motive (1984 TV Documentary)

Murder: No Apparent Motive (1984) (Youtube)

An original HBO TV documentary which is outdated from an information and scientific aspect but is invaluable from an historical view.  At the time of this documentary "serial killer" was not a common phrase and they don't ever use it. The Green River Killer is active but unknown, Ted Bundy is in prison, appealing his conviction and maintains his innocence.  The meat comes from interviews with Ed Kemper, a vicious killer, who in personable and gives much insight into the sociopathic mind. On screen personalities include original FBI profiler Bob Ressler.  Amazing resource for those studying the field!

Watch it on Youtube. (full documentary)
