Y'all know I know my serial killers 😬💋 the book is decent and I'm trying to get into the Netflix show but it's kind of a buzzkill because I know the story already. People are so shocked with the show. Do they not know what mentally/emotionally deranged individuals are capable of? Dahmer's story is definitely one of the more disturbing/fascinating from a mental illness standpoint. Spooky season #truecrime.

I'm still reading The Stranger Beside Me and loving it. However, I started this Ann Rule tonight. I'm all set for some disturbing reading with this True Crime. I can't even imagine where children are concerned but I will literally read anything. I guess it's just my innate curiosity about what makes these monsters act in such heinous ways. Tell me more about Ann Rule...I love her already!! (I know she's passed away 😔)

BookNAround I pulled this off my parents‘ shelves when I was about 12. It‘s the only book my mom ever took away from me. I just snuck it off again and I still remember some of the scenes in it (which probably validates the impulse to take it away from young me) even though I‘m 51 now. (edited) 4mo

Atlas Shrugged | Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I am currently reading not 1 but 3 of her novels. I couldn't get through Anthem however. She's definitely what I consider an acquired taste. What's your favorite Ayn Rand book? I want to read her nonfiction at some point.

Alfoster This one is my favorite even though it‘s so long! I loved The Fountainhead as well but this one kept me thinking about It forever!🤩 4mo

Took so long to finish but I was constantly mentally comparing and contrasting the book with the movie. It was good but too much sometimes. The whole story is creepy as hell, based on real life monsters. Good writing. I'm interested in more Thomas Harris but not anytime soon.

For nearly two years, almost every Thursday morning, rain or shine, they came to my house, and almost every time, I could not get over the shock of seeing them shed their mandatory veils and robes and burst into color. When my students came into that room, they took off more than their scarves and robes. Gradually, each one gained an outline and a shape, becoming her own inimitable self. Our world in that living room with its window framing...

bibliobliss ...my beloved Elburz Mountains became our sanctuary, our self-contained universe, mocking the reality of black-scarved, timid faces in the city that sprawled below. 11mo

Wingwalkers: A Novel | Taylor Brown

Carnival tents were sprouting in the Square like overnight toadstools. There was the snake charmer, the bearded lady, the wild man from Borneo, who gnawed on white clubs of ox bone, his ankle shackled to an iron stake driven deep into the earth beneath his tent. One might have witnessed any of these marvels for a dime. But the three brothers who followed the wagon across the Square, marching along the dark, dewcut streaks of its passage like...

Neglect | Kim Wozencraft

What use was algebra? Whatever you did to one side of the equation had to be done to the other, achieving the solution required symmetrical manipulation of the numbers on either side of the equal sign. That concept was irrelevant outside the world of mathematics. In real life, the word equality was just something that sounded good on parchment.

You didn't walk in here for books. You didn't have to say my name. You didn't have to smile or listen or take me in. But you did. Your signature is on the receipt. This wasn't a cash transaction and it wasn't a coded debit. This was real. I press my thumb into the wet ink on your receipt and the ink of Guinevere Beck stains my skin.

‼️ OLD LADY ALERT ‼️

I am so happy to have found all these episodes of "Murder, She Wrote" on Peacock TV. I have been looking for this show for so long. I love putting it on while I'm relaxing doing other things. Yes, I am very much an old lady at 34 ?

Something in her life was solved: she knew about the chess pieces and how they moved and captured, and she knew how to make herself feel good in the stomach and in the tense joints of her arms and legs, with the pills the orphanage gave her.

Loved the Netflix show, reading the book now!! ♟

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks How does the book compare? 12mo
bibliobliss @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I'm not very far into the book yet but there's some scenes that got cut from the show and I'm glad (one scene in particular in the beginning is a bit much for the show, in my opinion). I'll have to let you know when I get further in!! The writing is good though 😉 12mo
