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.

Inspector Flytrap (#1)

A cute early chapter book for those ready to move up from easy readers. Very silly stories of a plant, a Venus Flytrap, who is an inspector taking on mysteries for the anthropomorphic neighbours. Flytrap gets around on a skateboard pushed by his assistant, Nina the goat. The mysteries are fun and silly but Flytrap doesn't take on every case he's presented he'll only solve the BIG DEAL mysteries. I liked Flytrap as a character and the art is adorable but the sidekick, Nina the goat was rather annoying. Decent first book for the series.
