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.

Winemaker Detective Mysteries #11

Perfect as always! This series is always fresh, bringing us something new and different each time. Book 11 features Alexandre as a main character! She's been a member of Benjamin's staff since book 1 but has only ever been mentioned or appeared in a few scenes the entire series. This story has two concurrent plots and one of them featuring her and Virgile! Meanwhile, something completely different is in store for Benjamin with the introduction of some international intrigue as he and his wife take a trip to Hungary and get mixed up with a gang of identity thieves. I really had a blast with this volume in the series and found the information on the Hungarian desert wine, Tokay, fascinating. My favourite cozy mystery series.
