The Silence of the Lambs | Thomas Harris

Pickpick

Even though The Silence of the Lambs is well known, reading this psychological thriller today still manages to disturb, distress, and excite. Clarice Starling, FBI agent in training, pursues serial killer Buffalo Bill with the help of infamous cannibal Hannibal Lector. Tense and heart pounding!

Red Dragon | Thomas Harris

Can Special Agent Will Graham find the monstrous Red Dragon, a serial killer targeting families, before he kills again? A very taut psychological thriller with characters you become emotionally invested in, leading to an explosive ending. Looking forward to the sequels!

“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”

cherinium I'm rereading this right now after many years. I love Tolkien's conversational storytelling style. 2mo
Sempernox Nice! I‘m reading it right now for the first time. Tolkien‘s voice is delightful! 2mo

The Weirdness: A Novel | Jeremy P. Bushnell

Pickpick

What would you do if the Devil paid you a visit, and he promised to give you something you‘ve long wanted in exchange for your help in acquiring his stolen Neko cat? And that action would save the world? The Weirdness is a charming, supernatural romp which twists and turns to a satisfying conclusion.

This book isn‘t bad; it‘s a mildly entertaining autobiographical account of one woman‘s dating woes. I guess I was expecting a well-researched sociological commentary on dating as a woman in the context of women‘s rights and the me-too movement. This book lightly touched on some of those themes, but not enough for me.

A bittersweet story that follows Franny, Jet and Vincent, siblings growing up in 1960‘s NYC who struggle with their identity as witches (each with specific powers). Additionally, their family carries a curse, dooming those who love them to ruin. Can they break the curse and be free to love? 4/5⭐️s

A wonderful and thoroughly engrossing account of the origin of HeLa cells, which have been used by most scientists to study cell development and functioning, as well as develop cures for many debilitating diseases. This book greatly humanizes science, yet does not sugar coat the ethical issues endemic to the field. Who “owns” human tissue and the resulting medicines developed from said biological specimens? A must read!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Great book. Welcome to Litsy 💖📖💖 5mo
