I‘m only a chapter or so in and this book has surprised me. It‘s wonderfully detailed prose makes it a real pleasure to read while the premise has a hint of the magical.

Cathythoughts Sounds good , I‘ve been looking at it in the shops , lovely cover 😍 1w
Oliveldn Hehe yeah it‘s beautiful isn‘t it! 1w

John Douglas is everything you want him to be: full of energy, specialist knowledge, humour and compassion. Oh and his wife sounds like a freakin badass. #truecrime #mindhunter

A really fascinating read and a departure from the usual pattern of true crime. Rules work is thoroughly researched, sensitive and compulsive. #truecrime #annrule

“So, simply then, here is my formula. What do you want more than anything else in the world? What do you love, or what do you hate?”

I can‘t recommend this joyful book of essays enough. It‘s truly gorgeous and inspiring. #writing #onwriting #raybradbury

I‘m so enjoying this - I‘ve been staying up late eating snacks and gorging on each chapter. #SSDGM #MFM

Learning about cults can only ever be enhanced by the spring weather. Really brings out that commune vibe.

I‘m really enjoying this so far: detailed, well researched and quick paced. #SSDGM

If you‘re looking for a replacement for The Secret History shaped hole in your heart this can‘t fill it but it certainly does a damn good job. Think Shakespeare students gone rogue 🤴🏾🍷💋📚

The Secret History | Donna Tartt

One of my all time favourites. The book I push on everyone I know. Donna Tartt has that rare magical gift of combining compulsive storytelling with intricate attention to word craft.
