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.

I See You by Clare Mackintosh

I See YouI See You by Clare Mackintosh

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first half of this book was slow for me, not because it wasn't interesting but rather I found it meandered along. The story always kept me reading but the pace didn't pick up until over halfway through. By then I was hooked and was taken for a ride during the intense climax and the twist ending was a surprise. I was totally shocked with who the villain ended up being, someone not even on my radar. I'll gladly read her first book.


  1. I read this sometime back and I liked this one.

  2. Her first book was great Nicola. I think I will read this one this year, thanks for the heads up on it being slow in the beginning.
