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.

 Crimes Canada: True Crimes That Shocked the Nation (#6)

A quick read. I'm Canadian and had never heard of this case so found it interesting. All the facts and information are given in an informative matter, but much of the details are not given in the narrative but instead left to be revealed with the trial, which made confusing reading at times. Legebokoff is a very atypical serial killer though and I found the book wanting in any psychological perspective. A professional profile of Cody would have been much appreciated. It is an interesting case that could have been written better.
