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.

Dark Hunter: The House of Memories by Benjamin Hulme-Cross

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is an easy chapter book, what I call a high-low reader. It's a horror story featuring a scary old woman, spiders and a demon. Much more scary than a Goosebumps book but shorter and easier to read. Not for little children though the reading level would seem to make it so. A decent story for what it is, obviously with this limited a vocabulary the story can't be very detailed, but it is a creepy little tale which is quite rare at this reading level. Best suited for mature children or reluctant/emerging teen readers.
