Diabolical Summer | Thierry Smolderen
post image

At my small town local library, I was surprised to see Diabolical Summer on the bookshelf (the religious nutbags tried to ban it🤬- in my personal opinion, if you're going to be a librarian you need to consider checking ALL your personal beliefs and opinions at the door🤙). Anyway, I found this #graphicnovel so good and I highly recommend it! The story and the artwork are worth your time 🤓

So a severe thunderstorm just woke me out of a sound sleep, and I made some coffee. My country Walmart finally got this new Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte creamer and I snatched up the last one. Let me tell you....this shit is awesome!!! I'm picky about some of this stuff, but you've got to try it☕️ It is sweet, so a little goes a long way. Great coffee/book companion. Worth the every penny of the $4.89 I paid...LOL!😄👌

My #BOTM pick is The Whisper Man.....looks super freaky!
Whats your pick?🤔😉

nelehelen I picked this one too! 2mo
Lovesbooks87 I would have picked this one but I have an ARC of it. Still haven't read it yet. But I picked Well Met, The Turn of the Key, and That's What Frenemies Are For. 2mo
Butterflyamore I read an ARC of The Whisper Man and I loved it. Otherwise I would have picked that one, too. I picked The Reckless Oath We Made and added on Leaving the Witness and House of Salt and Sorrows. 2mo
cherinium This is the one I picked. Based on reviews I've seen, I was really excited to see that it was a BOTM selection. None of the others caught my interest at all. 2mo

This is NOT for the faint of heart...you've been warned. But with that said, there is a wealth of history and information. This case truly helped authorities to find and prosecute serial killers. And also to keep children safer.
Very well researched and well written.

AmyG Looks good. Thanks. 4mo

1. As a kid it was always Squeeg. Ughhh🙄 Can't believe I said that in public😬
2. This book sucked and so did the title -The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake.
3. Rarely does it ruin it. I read for me and to enjoy the story🤙
4. I LOVE book covers! A lot of thought and effort goes into them. But it won't be the decider for reading it.

🐝 Shades of blue...all
🐝 Mystery/Thriller
🐝 Wow, tough one. I'd say crochet/knitting, bird watching and painting/making birdhouses.
🐝 Chocolate!
🐝 Game of Thrones and there is no way I can pick one favorite movie...haha. So I'll say The Hangover, A Star is Born and most of the Harry Potter Series.
🐝 I'll have to get back to you...sorry. 😬

I listened to this book going into work, then on my way home. Loved the narrator, Matthew Blaney. Listening to his beautiful Irish accent was the best ending to my days at work!
If you listen to one true, nonfiction audio book this year, please make sure it's this one 🤓
You will not be disappointed. The trouble in Ireland must never be forgotten and Patrick Keefe's writing is outstanding!

I am home sick with strep throat....again. That makes twice in 6 months....argh!
So what's the best way to spend a rainy, sick day? Reading of course! This book is just so great. The scope of Adam Higginbotham's research, many years of dedication to get the true story correct and his amazing writing skills make this book a number one hit! The story (and surrounding story) needed to be told.
Thank you again @StellarDoc 🤓😘🥰
