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.

Tom Gray (#3)


Another adrenaline-pumping political thriller in the Tom Gray series. All the familiar characters that we love (and hate) are back again as the action moves from the Philippines to the UK. I don't usually read much in this genre, but I love this series and found this book just as good as I had anticipated. Full of action from beginning to end, if anything the only problem with this entry would be that there are too many things going on at once but McDermott manages to keep the plot tight and ties everything together at the end. Not exactly a cliff-hanger, but this volume does end on an intake of breath letting us know there will be another volume which I do already have and am looking forward to reading in the near future. A great series for those looking for an adrenaline rush and modern day intrigue.
