Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered
Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered: The Definitive How-To Guide | Karen Kilgariff, Georgia Hardstark
The highly anticipated first book by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, the voices behind the #1 hit podcast My Favorite Murder! Sharing never-before-heard stories ranging from their struggles with depression, eating disorders, and addiction, Karen and Georgia irreverently recount their biggest mistakes and deepest fears, reflecting on the formative life events that shaped them into two of the most followed voices in the nation. In Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered, Karen and Georgia focus on the importance of self-advocating and valuing personal safety over being ‘nice’ or ‘helpful.’ They delve into their own pasts, true crime stories, and beyond to discuss meaningful cultural and societal issues with fierce empathy and unapologetic frankness. “My Favorite Murder started as a way for Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark to work through their fears. Now it’s a worldwide community.... Even its darkest moments are lightened by Karen and Georgia's effortlessly funny banter and genuine empathy.” —RollingStone.com At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

This audiobook was fabulous! I have never listened to the My Favorite Murder podcast. I‘m so protective of my listening time I devote it entirely to books and podcasts about books. That‘s going to change! The authors are funny, poignant, honest, feminist and bad ass. They redefine sexy in a not gross, not misogynistic , not victim-blaming way. Read, listen, borrow, buy.

I liked it for the most part but the authors wrote about drug addiction, being uneducated (in a I‘m too cool for school kind of way and growing up privileged but less privileged than their peers. The repeated it Like they expected each one was a standalone and you‘d read them weeks/months apart.

I was SO nervous to read this because I love MFM, but (no offense to Karen and Georgia) I didn‘t know if two podcasters could actually pull off writing a book. However, I LOVED it from cover to cover. I laughed, I cried, and I felt inspired to kick some ass. It has the perfect mix of life advice, funny storytelling, and true crime references. I‘m going to beg all the young women I know to read this (even if they don‘t listen to the podcast)!

Update on me listening to all of the MFM episodes over again:

This is exactly what my face looks like every time Karen and Georgia mention The Golden State Killer and talk about how he was never caught and might still be out there. Can‘t wait to get to the episode when they find out they finally have him in custody 🧬 #RIPQueenMichelleMcNamara #HotForHoles

I love the podcast and I loved this book! It‘s not just about murder and true crime, although there is plenty of that. Karen and Georgia are honest about their past substance abuse and mental health, they are encouraging and supportive, they are hilarious and blunt. I laughed out loud and had to close the book when I couldn‘t read through my tears (both happy and sad). #ssdgm #mfm #murderino #readerino

This was like a a nice, long, and much needed hug from a best friend. I was expecting more murder but it was a look into their lives. It was open and vulnerable and I love Karen and Georgia for their ability to wear their hearts on their sleeves. It was also hilarious, the “move away from me now, move away from me now” made me laugh so hard I had to put the book down for a bit. Highly recommend if you‘re a fan of the podcast! #SSDGM #Murderino

I haven‘t listened to the podcast for a while but I will always have a soft spot for it and I really enjoyed this chance to learn more about Karen and Georgia and what shaped them into the women they are today. Part double memoir, part advice book, and part homage to their fans, this was a great read to stay up past my bedtime for. #ssdgm

Quite a surprising listen. I listened to this true crime podcast way back when they started and although I like their personalities, I didn‘t like the presentation of how they discussed murders. This audiobook was quite good , but it was more a discussion of each of their lives , advice they‘ve learned by choices made , and a bit of a self help book in a way. It was interesting , parts were sad , parts were funny , but it was all good. 4🌟

Kaye NOTE-my free month of Scribd will soon be over. I was trying to decide whether to keep it and stumbled across this book this morning. It was so good , I listened to it all day . Now, what to do about Scribd ? 4w
Fridayfilms They jumped the shark years ago. It went from true crime to whatever the hell they felt like talking about for 1.5 hours, followed by true crime. This sounds interesting though. 4w
Kaye @Fridayfilms I haven‘t listened to their podcast for quite a long time. They don‘t talk much at all about true crime in the book. Just a very small part about how they originally got together over their true crime addiction, then a part near the very end. All in all, I found it entertaining . They each took turns telling a part of the book. Part of it sounded like something that may have been done before an audience. I liked getting to know them 4w

Fascinating women who built careers into what they love to do--writing, acting, podcasting, founding a podcast network. Pretty great. 4w

I loved this audiobook so much! I loved the conversational back and forth style. I liked that they mixed in live readings for portions of the book. It was so well done. This book had me laughing out loud and at times bracing myself while they dug deep and told personal stories from their lives.

I can see myself listening to this again in the future. My B&N copy comes in on Friday so I can see the amazing artwork by some #murderinos!

As an early listener of MFM (less so recently, for various me-not-them reasons), I‘ve long awaited this one, and I liked it a lot. It‘s sharp, sincere, and so funny. Georgia and Karen clearly love their audience, and the book reflects their gratitude for and sense of responsibility to them. Of course this soars on audio, with G & K narrating their own stories and coming together for fun chapter wrap-ups (and Paul Giamatti was pretty good, too 😂).
