#TrueCrime

Just started this one from a journalist involved with #truecrime
This one seems to be more reflective about the author's life and how he became a journalist and later on invested in the unsolved crimes he covered. As seen here with my after dinner snack of peanut butter banana "sandwiches" ? ?

Rose and I are reading and I‘m sipping on a cocktail. Such a perfect Friday night! 😊 This is book #3 for #newyearwhodis and 70 pages in, I‘m pretty obsessed. Thanks @Mitch @monalyisha

I chose this one for a "least favorite genre" reading prompt based on recommendations and high praise. I don't tend to like true crime books because they read really dry to me but this one sucked me in from the get go and kept me captivated the entire time and I ended up loving it, much to my surprise! The entire situation is just mind boggling. I have no idea how one person can be so manipulative and evil. I highly recommend this one!

I‘m a bit obsessed with the show so I had to read the book! It‘s really good, but also sad that there are so many serial killers out there that you can make a living by studying them. I think I‘m going to read his next book too.

This book is about an American businessman who ran afoul of the deeply-entrenched corruption in Russia. Bill Browder saw the possibilities in Russia once it was opened to outsiders and worked hard to establish himself in the financial world there. The story of his success and then his downfall has elements of high political drama and provides a peek into the rampant greed of both Russian oligarchs and Vlad Putin. Five out of 5 stars.

My #JumpStart2020 day has been switching between these two wildly different books. Even though I‘m a King fan, I believe there‘s a demarcation between his pre accident books & post accident books. But I saw the 1st episodes of the series last night & loved it so bought the audiobook. The other was today‘s #BookMail but I started reading & couldn‘t put it down! I grew up during the worst of the “Troubles” & vividly remember it on the news nightly.

cariashley How‘s the audio of The Outsider? Am debating whether I want to read it in print or listen. 15h
Penny_LiteraryHoarders @cariashley audio is great! This is how I read/listened to it. Will Patton narrates. 15h
Lizpixie @cariashley it‘s ok so far, my problem is that Will Patton has such a distinctive voice that it takes me away from the story coz I keep getting images of his face! 14h
ElizaMarie I read the book and really enjoyed it (Stephen King) I haven‘t started the stories yet... but I‘m gonna tackle it pretty soon! I‘m glad to hear people are liking it :) 13h

This was interesting. I deal with broad statutes that the legislature decided to let the courts (and the agencies dealing with them) figure out every day. And I can imagine that I could easily accidentally incriminate myself. 12/15 #Jumpstart2020

Somehow I finished this quarter of #booked2020 already. 🥳🥳

The tagged book was my final read, about the bomb that exploded at the LA Times in 1910, resulting in many fatalities. I listened on audio and it was one of those books that wasn‘t good and wasn‘t bad. It was interesting and well written but didn‘t hold my attention, which is crucial for me on audio but sadly not uncommon. #hollywood
