The book focuses on Randy Gray‘s search for his son Jacob but Billman also writes about others who went missing in the wild, some never found.It is a compelling read but would work better as a collection of individual missing people and their stories or even focusing only on Jacob.Sensationalist are: - the ‘unexplained cases‘ hinting at people being abducted by Sasquatch or aliens? - we should all be scared when we hike, “lest you be next”.Really?

This is totally readable, but I feel like the title is misleading. It‘s more like the “history” of violent faith. I‘m a history buff, but theology is not an area that I care about at all.

I was shaken to the core about all of the crimes committed in this book. It‘s sickening. It‘s rampant. It‘s wrong. If you read, there are triggers for everything you can think of. That being said, I will def be finishing the show! #truecrime #hulu

rubyslippersreads I read the book years ago, and am really enjoying the series. 2d

EvieBee @Megabooks Definitely! Are you watching the show? 16h
EvieBee @MicheleinPhilly I know! And it‘s not a small section either—it‘s the whole book! I did those sections on audio with the speed bumped way up! 16h
Megabooks I am not. I am terrible about watching tv! 15h

Unpopular opinion time! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I listened to this on audiobook and was a little disappointed. I think the title is a bit misleading and I‘ve never listened to their podcast, although I do consider myself a true crime junkie. The self help aspect was a little grating, with long passages about their childhood memories that didn‘t add much to the story imo. The true crime parts were interesting. Maybe it wouldn‘t have bothered me as much if I had ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 Read it with my eyeballs, but I was glad when it ended. 😬 That being said, I‘d still give their podcast a listen at least once, maybe I‘ll like that better. 2.5⭐️ #audiobook #truecrime #memoir #selfhelp #podcast 3d
Patchshank I think you have to be a fan of the podcast to really like the book. But a lot of fans where let down by it too since it wasn't really true crime based. I enjoyed it, but i do think they should write some actual true books. I think that would be interesting. 3d

A little time to relax. I‘m loving this book! No, it‘s nothing like the series on Hulu but I love the information that Jon Krakauer gives. It‘s interesting! Happy Friday! 😋

Washed in the Blood | Shelton L. Williams

The Book's Delight is thrilled to host author Shelton L. Williams and his book, Washed in the Blood on its book tour. This is a true life crime/memoir about the murder of Shelton's cousin, Betty Jean Williams in Odessa, Texas in 1961. Known as the “Kiss and Kill“ murder, you'll find the crime fascinating and be horrified by the trial of her murderer.

Very well done book. It juxtaposes the horrific murders of a mother and her toddler daughter against the history of the early LDS church that informs the extremist, fundamentalist sects of breakaway LDS groups today. I felt the book was fairly even handed in recounting atrocities both perpetrated upon and by the early Mormons, particularly in my home state of MO. If you are watching the show, don‘t expect the book to follow that track. 👇🏻

Ericalambbrown The police officers depicted in the show were created as a device to bring the stories told in the book to a TV audience. The book is far more “documentary” style with interviews and scholarly historical research. And it‘s not a mystery. You know from the first chapter who commited the murders. (edited) 4d

The Hulu show based on this book is amazing! But! I can‘t be waiting around each week for new episodes so I bought the book. It‘s so good!

When the new episodes air tomorrow, I don‘t want to be bothered about anything, so I made this pork chop casserole in advance. 😆😉

EvieBee @vivastory Thank you, Scott! 5d
EvieBee @JamieArc All things bookish, right?! 😂 5d
EvieBee @Leftcoastzen Thank you! 💕 5d
EvieBee @Mel It‘s really easy! I‘m linking the recipe. I added my own extra spices (poultry seasoning, chicken bouillon powder, paprika, onion and garlic powders) and I sautéed some sweet onions in apple cider vinegar. https://40aprons.com/pork-chop-casserole/ 5d
EvieBee @sarahbarnes You agree! 🤣💕 5d
merelybookish I'm impressed! I would resort to frozen pizza.🙂 5d
Bklover Did you put the sautéed onions in the casserole? (This looks yummy!) 5d
EvieBee @merelybookish aww, thanks! I have to be in the mood to cook on the regular. It‘s exhausting! 4d
EvieBee @Bklover Thank you! 💕 I spread them onto the chops before I spread the cream mixture over it. 4d
batsy Excellent and delicious planning! Is this the show starring Andrew Garfield? I'm really keen to watch it but ofc I have to read the book first 😆 4d
Christyco125 A woman after my own ♥️ My patience for episodes has been ruined by Netflix and the book is always better. 4d
Amiable How closely does the show follow the book? I read it a while ago but remembered it as being more nonfiction than a story with a plot. I might have to read it again! 3d
EvieBee @Christyco125 It‘s ruined me too! Even Netflix will release a few Kdrama episodes per week. All I got was one this week. Sigh! 2d
EvieBee @Amiable There are some glaring inconsistencies but I guess it made it more tidy. There is just sooo much info in the book and mostly history of the Mormon faith. 2d
