About meI love to read. I enjoy being spooked a little. When I'm not reading I'm working, cleaning, cooking, exercising and caring for a little one, cats, dogs, and a husband. When I used to have free time I would paint, draw, and sculpt and I also used to sing in rock bands.

About my libraryI love anything well-written and suspenseful. I seek out mostly thrillers, mysteries, true historic disasters, and some supernatural/haunting stories. Then occasionally I need to recover with something cheerful and/or humorous. Every now and then I like a Gothic romance.
"Read But Unowned" contains anything I've read over the past couple of years and some books worth remembering from years past. I've rated the books I've read but I don't have the time or confidence to write any reviews. The ratings tend to be pretty high because I don't take any chances with books - I research every book carefully before I pick it out to avoid disappointment. "To Read" would be books I have researched and had on a spreadsheet (I'm a little too organized) so I could find them at my library or order them there; "Wishlist" are the books no nearby library has but many of them can be requested at my library; "Currently Reading" is pretty self-explanatory. "My Library" has the books I actually own, which are mostly children's books for my daughter.
Update: I'm so hooked on suspense/crime that I've had to add a "To Read - Suspense Only" category which I will mainly use to choose my books to read.
I'm open to suggestions...
