What I read this month:
- The I-5 Killer ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book added another reason to my growing list of why I avoid I-5, I absolutely recommend this to anyone living in the PNW. This piece of garbage is still residing in Oregon State Penitentiary.
- Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My Favorite Murder isn’t my favorite true crime podcast but I loved this memoir. It was unexpectedly funny and I laughed out loud many times, including at the grocery store while listening to the audio. I highly recommend it, Murderino or not.
- Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was our True Crime Book Club pick – Happy Women’s History Month! I thoroughly enjoyed this on audio and the history that came with it. It has earned a spot in my True Crime collection.
- Before and After: The Incredible Real-Life Stories of Orphans Who Survived the Tennesee Children’s Home Society ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Heartbreaking. Inspired by Lisa Wingate’s novel, Before We Were Yours, this collection of letters and stories from survivors of the cruel Georgia Tann will break and warm your heart with every page. Did I wait six months for this book from my library? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely.
- The Younger Wife (ARC) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I received the advanced reader’s copy of this novel from NetGalley. I love Sally Hepworth’s writing style and ability to illustrate complicated, dysfunctional family dynamics and this book was no different in that light. However, The Younger Wife touches on real and serious mental health issues and abuse that I felt was described a little too nonchalantly for my taste. I’d love to hear other opinions after it’s publication date on 4/5/2022.
