⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ New Yorker cartoonist, Fitzgerald Campbell, scrutinizes what draws her specifically, and us generally, to true crime. Is it a learned/inherited hobby (from her mom) that grew as media and pop culture shifted? Is it victim relatability? Through this research, she discusses specific cases and media influence. It‘s absolutely fascinating, darkly humorous, and an absolute gateway for true crime noobs like myself.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ There‘s a mysterious death at glossy fashion magazine RAGE. The setting is pretty typical: NYC, high fashion, high pressure, catty coworkers, so on. There‘s also an extreme darkness I didn‘t expect, but was all-in! Part murder mystery, part chick lit, this is a deftly-written satire I‘m glad I picked up!

@MicheleinPhilly Thanks for putting this on my radar. 💚

MicheleinPhilly Glad you enjoyed it! 9h

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Clever ol‘ Maud is low key devious. She messes around and gets vengeance by playing the part of confused elderly lady when she full well knows what‘s going on. Darkly humorous story collection! I felt kind of bad for laughing. #coverlove

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘m a pretty enormous chicken shit, but while reading the graphic memoir “Murder Book,” I was finally motivated to pick up this classic. I knew very little about Bundy. FUCK THAT GUY. WTF. I‘m still stunned by the odd circumstances of this story and friendship. Ann Rule is so prolific; I‘m curious to read more of her work. Kinda want to read more about Bundy as well, but why??

PS. This cover is hideously insensitive.

CoverToCoverGirl I recently read this one too. I agree that it was quite remarkable that she had a connection to him. You just never know who people really are. When I was a young girl a serial killer lived on my street. He terrorized our whole province over many months. 6d
britt_brooke @CoverToCoverGirl OMG. That‘s horrifying!! 6d
LeahBergen As a longtime reader of Bundy things 😬, this is a pretty fascinating read 6d

britt_brooke @bookaholic1 I‘m definitely looking forward to reading more of her work. I‘d love to hear your favorites! 6d
CoverToCoverGirl @Cinfhen @britt_brooke it was! His wife and daughter are still in witness protection. He recently came up for parole (WTH!) but was denied. IMO he will always be a danger to the public and parole shouldn‘t ever be on the table for ANY serial killer. 5d
bookaholic1 @britt_brooke They were all great, my favorite, or I should say the most heartbreaking one to me was SMALL SACRIFICES 5d
Cinfhen What??? Parole??? Our legal system is EFFED UP @CoverToCoverGirl 5d
CaramelLunacy Agree with your comment on the cover. Oof 5d
britt_brooke @CoverToCoverGirl OMG. Thank goodness it was denied. He should rot in prison for the rest of his days. 5d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “All this happened, more or less.“ My #favoritefirstline. I'm recycling an old photo, but like the book, and the opening line, it too is a favorite! I decided to #reread this after Tom Roston's recent “The Writer's Crusade“ - a thoughtful deep dive into Vonnegut's most famous work. I think I've read Slaughterhouse-Five more than any other book. It will ALWAYS hold up. I'm so grateful his Dresden story finally came to fruition.

Cinfhen It‘s a fabulous photo 😍😍😍I‘m almost inspired to try this book again xx 6d
CallMeIshmael I recently reread it also as I talked a friend who had never read Vonnegut to give it a try and it‘s amazing how good this book is 6d
britt_brooke @CallMeIshmael And it somehow gets better with every reread, I swear. So good. 💚 6d

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Big thank you to Meg for putting this on my radar, and for Cindy's head's up on the recent #audible sale! Y'all are just the best bookish friends! I wasn't previously familiar with Wilson, and this was an unexpected, but absolute, delight. She's sincere and funny as hell. I just want to hang out with her, to be honest. She's seems like fun and is, no doubt, an amazing conversationalist. Really solid memoir!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I picked this up pretty much to preview it for my husband (even though this came out a few years ago). Plus, I love a good celebrity memoir. It's complete bullshit that Barker doesn't narrate the audiobook especially since the cover says he does. The narrator is AWFUL. Not a good choice at all. Fortunately, the story is good. I didn't know much about his life before Blink-182 or details of the plane crash. A solid, pre-Kardashian, read.

Kayla.Adriena I didn't even know this existed! Pre-Kardashian 🙄, I can't stand it 😆 6d

Cinfhen And ugh, Kardashians 🤮 6d
Reggie @Cinfhen Kim saved some women from the Afghan soccer team today by paying a portion of the cost of the flight for them and their families. Also I felt bad for Travis because him and his friend DJ AM both survived that crash and later DJ AM died to an overdose. It made me think of Final Destination and how death really never stopped looking for him. Anyways….goodnight. 6d
Cinfhen You‘re right @Reggie Kim does seem to use her wealth & influence for good causes but the “Kardashians” as a global phenomenon is unappealing to me. 6d

⭐️⭐️⭐️ The starving artist trope is so overplayed, but this ended up being a solid #bookclub selection. Teenaged April leaves school and home, working and playing gigs in town after town. Questionable decisions bring on a lingering and overwhelming sense of foreboding. April is a good, well-meaning person. She doesn‘t need to be rescued, yet she does need someone to care. You can create your family. They need not be your blood to be your heart.

Cinfhen Glad to see your bookclub is still going strong 💪🏽 2w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A book about one of my favorite books, by one of my favorite authors? I had trepidation. But look at this cover and title! What‘s inside is absolutely wonderful, babies. It‘s about the man, father, writer, and soldier, as well as a thorough study of Slaughterhouse-Five. Writing about the trauma of war can‘t have been easy. I‘m grateful for the years it took Vonnegut to complete his Dresden story. This is a must read for devout fans.

KatieDid927 Oh good! I was trepidatious too, but it‘s on my list! 2w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Annual #reread to get me into the awkward, dark, and hilarious holiday spirit! As usual, my favorites are his personal essays, but the short stories here are decent, too. Disturbing as hell and intentionally offensive. This book is def not for everyone, but it *is* for me. I‘ll always be grateful for the ridiculous masterpiece that is “Six to Eight Black Men” - a funny AF essay about Dutch Christmas customs.

LeahBergen I love this book. One of his best! 😆😆 2w

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Might wanna grab a big bowl of popcorn for this one. Grisham worked for the Trumps for several years, serving in various capacities including Mrs. Trump‘s Chief of Staff, and eventually her dream job, White House Press Secretary. She‘s an insider with a bitter taste. I felt like this was pretty honest and fair. Maybe someone with different political leanings would disagree. I enjoyed her FLOTUS stories the most. An insightful read, indeed.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Not so much focused on the company‘s and creators‘ histories, but rather on the actual characters, canon, arcs, shifts, trends, and how the universe connects. Inspired by his son, Wolk read over 27,000 Marvel stories resulting in this phenomenal rundown. I‘ve read only a few of the comics, but like many, I love the MCU films. The cultural impact is fascinating! Perfect companion to Marvel Comics: The Untold Story and A Marvelous Life.

⭐️ Even the amazing Bahni Turpin couldn‘t save this one. Nothing felt believable. To elicit fear, there needs to be *some* plausibility. It was very surface-level; just gory, not scary nor suspenseful. I didn‘t care about the teenaged victims or the killer‘s (weak) motive. Maybe it‘s better on screen, but someone will have to let me know because I‘m not giving it two more hours of my life.

LibrarianRyan Dont give it the two hours. I didn't care for the book either, I read it when it first came out, but thought maybe Netflix would make it better. Nope. 3w
MrT I agree with the above. I didn't even finish the book and the film was standard unimaginative slasher movie nonsense. 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Sackler story is a fascinating - immigrants to pharmaceutical legends, in just three generations. They changed the medical marketing game, and had part in the development of several drugs including OxyContin. With great power, there must also come great responsibility, right? Great egos, more like. Great focus on wealth and to hell with ethics? Yep. This was far more detail that I needed, but well-written and thoroughly researched.

Cinfhen This was excellent!!! Really well researched and such a story!! Amazing how they took a good name and just destroyed their legacy with greed 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Gosh, this was a tough, but ultimately, uplifting read. Bowler is open and honest about her experiences with stage 4 colon cancer. Very reflective, and at times terrifying, yet her dark humor and quick wit reiterate what an effective defense/coping mechanism maintaining a sense of humor can be. Bowler thoughtfully touches on faith, ambitions and limitations, and generally being freaking human.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This revolves around trips in, and around, the American outdoors - one, a hiking excursion with George Saunders and Jeff Tweedy (yes, pls), another, Airstreaming with the fabulous Megan Mullally (yes, pls). The intention is to give a shit about others and about nature. I like that line of thinking/living, but this dragged a bit. While I usually find Offerman‘s vocabulary and vernacular endearing, it started to wear on me. Narrowly a pick.

Salinger | David Shields

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jerome David Salinger, “Jerry” to his friends: writer, soldier, fickle lover, famous recluse. Through extensive research, interviews, and letters, Shields and Salerno plummet deep into Salinger‘s life, analyzing his works, and speculating on posthumous publication. Like many artists, he was an incredibly flawed human. This absolutely consumed me.

(It‘s quite a chunkster, so I switched between print and audio).

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Gosh, I love Stanley Tucci! I wish he hadn‘t been the disgusting killer in The Lovey Bones; terrible book and film, btw, but I digress. This memoir via his palate was just enough to make me crave (sorry) a more in-depth life story. The food talk and recipes were pretty great, though. It‘s his book, he can do what he wants! Very enjoyable. Grab the audio. He‘s marvelous!

Megabooks I enjoyed this as well, but I think you wrote the better review! 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Slightly updated, but true to the original story (which I just read for the first time recently). Super fun art and vivid coloring brought these quirky characters to life. Grandma was very cute, and her appearance quite perfectly fit the grandma stereotype, which made me laugh. I mean, she‘s in her 80s, so it made sense. The Grand High Witch was delightfully creepy when the mask came off. A fun adaptation!

The Catcher in the Rye | J. D. Salinger
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘m not sure how many times I‘ve read this, but it‘s my favorite always. Yes, it‘s one of the most aggressively polarizing books in existence. Yes, I have a son named Holden. You either identify with, and understand, Caulfield or you don‘t. Salinger really knocks me out. 😉 I wish he had more published works, but also perfectly satisfied with what he gave us.

Ruthiella I‘ve not read it since, but I was lucky enough to read this in high school, age 15, which was probably the perfect time to do so. I understood Holden and his anger and fear. 1mo
britt_brooke @Ruthiella I was about 30 the first time I read it. I wish I‘d read it younger, but it still hit me hard. Loved it immediately. 💚 1mo
melissajayne Read it 13 years ago at age 28 and I didn‘t like it 1mo

AshleyHoss820 Franny & Zooey and Nine Stories just knocked the wind out of me! He‘s a compelling author! This isn‘t my favorite, however, one could argue that because people get so annoyed with Holden that Salinger successfully wrote a realistic teenager. 😊 1mo
britt_brooke @AshleyHoss820 I‘m rereading Nine Stories now. Also just started a Salinger biography today. I‘m on a kick. Might reread Franny and Zooey next. It‘s definitely another favorite! The dialogue is just so damned good. 1mo

I love finding stuff in used books. I bought this years ago and finally decided to crack it open. I sure hope things worked out for Adrian and Michael, but I curse whichever one of them dog-eared the shit out of this book. 😂 And at the bottom of the pages. First time I‘ve seen that. Anyway …. enjoying the read so far!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I haven‘t listened to his podcast of the same name, but this essay collection is delightful. Green rates random things in life using a five-star scale. I may or may not - in my head, mostly - do this from now on. 😂 He rates the mundane to the obscure to the truly astonishing while delivering astute, and often funny, observations. Bonus points for the Vonnegut references, as they both share the same hometown. Exceeded my expectations!

GondorGirl This is, hands down, one of the best essay collections I've ever read. 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I first listened to this part thriller, part horror on audio last year. It‘s so atmospheric and compulsive. I just #reread it for book club, but this time in print. Loved it more second time around. The parallel storylines are just right and the ghosts are oddly believable. Added that 5th star!

LeeRHarry I just finished this one - well paced, atmospheric and not too scary - which I was happy about 😊 1mo

Reckoning: Tennessee Writers On 2020 | Susannah Felts, K. K. Fox
post image
Mehso-so

⭐️⭐️ Supported by a Tennessee Arts Commission grant, this collection of essays, poems, and a smidge of fiction - all by Tennessee authors - sums up the shit show that was 2020. Some stories were truly good, some were not. It will come as no surprise that Margaret Renkl‘s essay was the best. I found much of the poetry cheesy/annoying/pretentious (poetry is not generally my thing). I commend the idea, but overall, this anthology was mediocre.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Another solid personal essay collection! As with her first, there‘s some tremendously heavy shit, but her openness will no doubt help others who‘ve experienced the same. Union begins with an emotional retrospection on infertility. Her pain permeates the page and is especially palpable on audio. My favorite essay was about her stepdaughter Zaya, and showing unwavering parental love and support. Union is good people.

The Heart Principle | Helen Hoang
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I so appreciate Hoang normalizing neurodivergence in her romances, because these folks *are* normal and deserve to hold space in mainstream entertainment. This is Anna‘s and Quan‘s love story, but just as much, it‘s about Anna‘s life and familial relationships; her realizations and struggles. It‘s a solid 3rd book in the Kiss Quotient series (though each can easily stand alone), but my least favorite.

Cinfhen Totally agree! My least favorite too 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Anyone who wants to ban this for “perceived misogyny” because all the witches are female can GTFO. These are silly fictional characters for god‘s sake! So what if they‘re all women for the purpose of this story? Anyway, this was creepy and fun! Incognito child-hating LADY witches are plotting to turn all of England‘s kids into mice in hopes it will lead to their demise without implicating the witches. That is, until the tables turn.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This required a mulling period after completion. Like many fans, Bourdain‘s death hit me like no other celebrity‘s passing ever had. He was so accessible and relatable. If I could host a “famous people dinner party,” he‘d be at the top of the list. This oral biography includes numerous stories and voices from his life. It‘s a brutally honest and intimate; often beautiful, often sorrowful.

Leftcoastzen I want to read this , I feel the same about his passing, it still stings. 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Significantly less bleak than his first volume which is indicative of life progression. The entries from which sprung recognizable essays were probably my favorites; a window to his process. Having Ullman narrate a good chunk of the audio was a bit disconcerting at first. I‘m not sure this choice garnered the desired effect, though I got used to it. Still, I would‘ve preferred ALL Sedaris, but it‘s 5 stars for this mega-fan nonetheless.
