Bk13 of June & #BigJuneReadathon is done. After ripping through the latest Slaughter so quick, I‘ve decided to go back & reread the Grant County/Will Linton books from the start. Unfortunately I found when I did #TheGreatLibraryCleanOf2022 that some of them have been “liberated” from my collection but all book thieves will get their just desserts one day.😈Sara Linton is a coroner & paediatrician in a small Georgia town👇👇

Lizpixie … trying to avoid her ex husband the Chief of Police when a series of brutal rapes & murders happen. Brilliantly written, great characters & horrible crimes. Loved it all! #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #Pop22 13h
5feet.of.fury I need more of this series. ❤️ 7h
TheAromaofBooks Gotta watch people with sticky fingers in your library!! 😂 I will say that in our family we have a handful of books that are regularly “poached“ from one another as we all think we should own that particular copy LOL 3h

The manner in which the set-up and the sketchy character gaslighting for such plot purposes just didn't come to me in a good mental state, so was just too triggering at the time. The middle section of the book improved this and was the best, with its dialogue and characterization. The ending was quick, anticlimactic, and didn't really answer my questions of context and character contradiction satisfactorily. I almost DNF'd this early on. 66ish%

The Monster of Florence | Douglas Preston

Pickpick

This was an interesting book. Douglas Preston went to Florence Italy to write a fictional crime novel & ended up getting mixed up with the real monster of Florence case. A case that was compared to London's Jack the Ripper & helped inspire Thomas Harris' Hannibal.

DGRachel I really enjoyed this book. So much so that when I accidentally left my copy on a plane (unfinished) I had to buy another (hardcover) copy so I could finish it. 😂 20h

The Island: A Thriller | Ragnar Jonasson

Pickpick

This is a solid crime thriller. Four friends visiting a remote island and only 3 return. For me it was the setting that resonated….Iceland. A perfect place for a murder..isolated and beautiful. My last overseas holiday before Covid hit was to Iceland in 2019. Such a wonderful destination!! Oh how I miss travel😍

Several young women go missing, but police fail to take action because they were known to be drug users and prostitutes. This is the story of those women, and also how the internet, particularly Craig‘s List, plays a role in sex work. My heart breaks for the families who still do not have justice, as no one has been held accountable in these deaths. This is also a Netflix documentary. #booked2022 #adaptedforsmallscreen

Cinfhen I have this on audio…sounds like a difficult but important listen 21h
DGRachel @Cinfhen It‘s so sad. 😢 20h

I think this is the third time I‘ve tried to read this book. It‘s not bad, I just don‘t have much time.

I will be so glad when this word disappears from every day conversation in books (and anywhere else!).

Lindy I just finished reading a book that has me thinking about ableist language: 2d
squirrelbrain 😡 That‘s the word that Lizzo had to change isn‘t it? 2d
TrishB @Lindy that sounds interesting- I‘ll keep an eye out for your review. 2d

TrishB @squirrelbrain yes- aside from the fact that she used it, I thought she handled it really well and immediately addressed the backlash. But in 2022 why are people still using it? This book was published 2000, but the Lizzo example shows we haven‘t made a lot of progress yet. 2d
AmyG That‘s from childhood. People still use it? 1d
BarbaraBB It‘s a horrible word indeed. 1d
julesG 🤬 I'm pretty sure the German equivalent is still in use, mainly by the older generations, too. 1d
BookBr 😒 1d
Cathythoughts Hate that word 👍🏻 1d
squirrelbrain I agree, she immediately held her hands up and apologised, and it did sound like a genuine heartfelt apology. 1d
TrishB @AmyG I always think that- but it‘s still out there. 1d
