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.

Investigation Discovery: Serial Killers December/January 2016

Investigation Discovery: Serial Killers December/January 2016
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Magazine, 98 pages
Published November 2015
Source: retail store

Glossy magazine with mostly two-page spreads about all the most popular serial killers you can think of. Heavy on the mid 20th century to present but still has a decent amount of the famous older cases. Divided into topical sections such as females, duos and the infamous there's a brief rundown on everyone and interesting stats throughout the magazine. I'm well read on this topic and didn't find anything I hadn't known before, even the pictures were all ones I'd seen before so I wasn't overly impressed with this from an information perspective. But it's nice to have the glossy in your hands rather than looking at pics on pinterest all the time. The last issue on Unsolved Mysteries was far better for me, but you'll like this issue more if you don't already know all the info.
