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.

Seven: The Sequel

I really enjoyed "The Seven Series" and this is my first book in the follow up "Sequel" series. Shane Peacock is one of my favourite Canadian YA authors and this book was no exception. I enjoyed it even more than the first book, "The Last Message". Shane writes a lot of mysteries and this is his first spy thriller in which he has excelled. This book concerns the one American cousin of the seven boys. He was the black sheep in the first book but now he's discovered his true self since those events. This is an action-packed spy story with a James Bond theme and centres around the famous British literary spies Fleming, Greene, Le Carre, etc. It also features the story of the famous Canadian spy, The Man They Called Intrepid, William Stephenson. A roller coaster ride of a book that even includes a Bond girl, Angel Dahl.
