About meSlightly obsessive bibliophile. Can’t stop buying books and I definitely don’t read enough to keep up with my collection, but there’s nothing else in my life I enjoy more than reading. Maybe music comes close.

About my library

As of yet I haven't rated the books I remember reading in my childhood, but that's definitely a future project.

A few of my books are missing, due to people borrowing them and not returning them. I'm keeping them as 'owned' in my library, though, as I have every intention of buying them again and I'm not quite sure exactly how many are missing.

Hi. You recently won a free copy of my novel, Human+. But, I'm very sorry to say, it looks like I made a mistake and forgot to say the giveaway is for an ebook only. My apologies. If you'd still like a copy, email me your preferred format (MOBI, EPUB, PDF) and I will send you one.


Thank you so much for the great review. I so very much appreciate it. It made my day. I hope you have a great day. Michelle Cohen Corasanti
Oh, I missed your note since I had two messages. I hope you enjoy them. It was fun picking them out!

I highly recommend the film of Unbearable Lightness, if you haven't already seen it. Excellent.
Awesome book choices. I can't wait to read them. Thank you so much! Also, I will be looking up the books you weren't able to get as well. Thank you very much.
Phew, I am glad you were ok with the choices :)
I'd like to thank you though for being very easy to pick for- my only problem was that I was spoilt for choice- I kept going over your wishlist and changing my picks probably about five times...

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!


I'd like to apologize. You recently won my novel, Dirty Little Angels, through The LibraryThing Member Giveaway. Unfortunately, I mistakenly posted the giveaway as a physical book instead of an e-book, so when I received the list of winners, no emails were included. Are you interested in receiving a free e-book version of the novel? If so, send me your e-mail address (mine is, and I'll send you a free copy.

Sorry for the confusion,

Over in Queensland, they have strange ideas about grammar.

Hi Reagan,
Always wanted to see Oz. Doesn't look likely though. I make do with
Arthur Upfield, Peter Corris and Garry Disher.
Hello, Reagan! Thanks for the friend add!
lol.. didn't know you liked cats, so that's extra cool. I absolutely loved both books, The Gargoyle was the book I was pimping last year (meaning I loved it so much I was recommending it to everyone) and Homer's Odyssey is my pimper this year. I also gave a copy to my mom :-)
Noticed you liked Trainspotting, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reading my new novel and posting your comments here (as well as on a few other book-related sites). Thought you might like my novel since it's also about a group of disturbed kids and a bit dark (like Trainspotting). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:
