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.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #7

This meme is held over on Book Date's blog and here we talk about what we are Currently Reading, What we read/posted the last week and what we plan on reading next week. I won't be posting what's coming up; you can get an idea by looking in my sidebars.

What I am Currently Reading


I've read *all* Jo Nesbo's books! I love him. This one is different though (according to all the reviews and the slim size) so I've been putting it off but the sequel to it was just published last month so I better get them read!


Continuing to read this from last week. It's a short book but I'm purposely reading it slowly for Lent. Should finish it this week, though.

Graphic Novel/Manga

I always have a short story collection going as I read one short story every morning with my cup of coffee. I have put that aside for Lent though and will be reading one chapter from The Holy Bible for the remainder of these 40 days.  In case you are interested, I am reading "Job".

What I Finished Reading and/or Posted This Week

Graphic Novels/Manga


  1. Angels and Saints sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing.


  2. Thanks for the Switch, Grant McKenzie recommendation.

    I haven't tried a Jo Nesbo yet, I think I'm still on the fence on if I will enjoy his books but I feel that is my genre, I have to give him a try.

  3. I have never read Jo Nesbo before. Maybe one day!

  4. Very nice blog. Glad I found you on the linky list.

    You are brave to read Jo Nesbo. :) We read one of his books for book club and most of us were squeamish. :)

    I hope you have a wonderful reading week.
