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.

Crimes Canada: True Crimes That Shocked A Nation (Book 7)

This is the second book I've read in this series and I won't be reading any more. A different author this time, but again I hadn't heard of the case and it is certainly worthy of knowing about. However, badly written, with a lot of repetition of information, blocks of details rather than narrative and plenty of the author's own personal opinions and assumptions, Swinney managed to make this book boring. I only finished it since I paid for it and I wanted to know the end results of the case without just resorting to muderpedia.
