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.

St. Michael the Archangel by Benedictine Nuns

St. Michael the Archangel by Benedictine Nuns
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Paperback, 81 pages
Published 2006 by TAN Books
Original published 1962
Source: gift

Fascinating, fascinating! I am a Catholic convert so I'm always discovering things I didn't know. I hadn't realised the power of St. Michel and the special things we can pray especially to him for intervention. This book starts with all the Biblical history of the archangel, then goes on to the history of his veneration. Finally, the meat of the booklet contains many prayers and a litany to St. Michael. He is the perfect one to be calling upon during these evil, wicked times of persecution. *Amen*
