1. To Kill a Mockingbird was banned the year before I was supposed to read it in class but my English teacher slipped me a copy anyway and it blew my 15 year old mind
2. It‘s sort of a wine colour
3. Killing Eve and When They See Us (watched both this week because I have a binge watching problem)
4. Thestrals from Harry Potter

1. Hard to pick a favourite but I really liked The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. I find myself thinking about it all the time ❄️
2. Probably My Dark Places by James Ellroy. I‘m usually obsessed with true crime but this one wasn‘t really for me 📰
3. Tagged book
4. I wanted to do the A to Z challenge which I think I should be able to finish, mostly just concerned about letter X

Update on me listening to all of the MFM episodes over again:

This is exactly what my face looks like every time Karen and Georgia mention The Golden State Killer and talk about how he was never caught and might still be out there. Can‘t wait to get to the episode when they find out they finally have him in custody 🧬 #RIPQueenMichelleMcNamara #HotForHoles

Out of the Shadows: A Memoir | Shannon Moroney, Timea Nagy
post image
Pickpick

A 20 year old Hungarian woman named Timea answers an ad for a babysitting job in Canada. But when she gets here, she is forced into the human sex trafficking trade in Toronto where she knows no one and doesn‘t speak the language. An incredible memoir but very difficult to read. I wanted so badly to reach into the book and pull this girl out of her circumstances, but of course she‘s already done that for herself. Definitely recommend this one.

Tamra Ugh - terrible. 😞 2w

So far today I‘ve burst out laughing in the middle of a group of people waiting to cross the street and had to hide in an aisle at the grocery store studying a bag of lentils while quickly composing myself when I started crying. I‘ve been waiting for this audiobook for months and it‘s finally here! #ssdgm (photo credit: thatshantastic on instagram)

Rereading an old favourite. Surprisingly, it‘s only 9 years old but reading it at 15 or 16 feels much different than reading it at 24 so it feels like the book is older than it is. Does that make sense? 🤔

Excited to start this book after hearing so many good things. But also a bit nervous that it‘ll be a letdown because it‘s been built up so much. We‘ll see! PS only a cat would prefer to sleep on a scratchy notebook than a nice comfy bed 🤨 #sillyluna #catsoflitsy

The Woods | Harlan Coben
post image
Mehso-so

A good enough thriller. Most of the twists were sort of predictable but there were a couple that caught me off guard too. The main thing that annoyed me was the main character/narration. Every time a female character was introduced he went on for like 4 pages about how hot she was which got to be a bit much and wasn‘t really relevant to what was happening in the book.

Ann Rule and Ted Bundy were friends and coworkers at a Crisis hotline. At the same time, he was committing the murders that she was writing about. It‘s terrifying that someone so smart and educated about crime can still be unaware that a serial killer is working side by side with her and walking her to her car after work to ensure she is safe (because there‘s a killer on the loose ya know) 🥶 #younevercantell #maymoviemagic @Cinfhen @rohit-sawant

cherinium I love how the tension builds slowly but effectively throughout the book. I found myself getting more and more jittery and anxious right up until the end. It was so much more than I expected after reading a description. 2mo

Beside Myself | Ann Morgan
post image
Pickpick

I liked this book but I feel like it was marketed all wrong and maybe that‘s why the reviews aren‘t always the greatest. It‘s meant to be a psychological thriller along the lines of Girl on a Train, and in that genre I don‘t really think it stands up. But if you look at it more as a book about mental illness, family, and identity, it‘s pretty good. Also, I love a good unreliable narrator.
