Book Haul – true crime and yet another memoir…

Just a casual blog post I’m writing on my phone tonight.

I purchased these two reads today and as well as having a beautifully matching color scheme, they are both non-fiction works.

I was a little reluctant to buy them after I realized they were both non-fiction. I love true story reads but I’ve read quite a few memoirs of late and I was actually looking for another thriller. But of course… both stories intrigued me and I just couldn’t resist.

The Lost Girls by Ava Benny-Morrison

I first heard this story on a podcast (Australian True Crime) and I found it interesting and of course, gruesome. When I saw the book today, I almost felt like it was fate. I wanted to know more about the crime and how it was solved. I do expect a bit of heartbreak and anger reading this one, but that is to be expected when I’m reading about anything unjust, like murder.

The Erratics by Vicki Laveau- Harvie

I thought this was a general fiction thriller when I picked it up. It looked like a quick read and I was fascinated by what appears to be a mental health breakdown by the author’s parent (I could be wrong, but that’s the impression I got). I almost put it back – in search of something fiction – but my curiosity got the best of me. Upon doing a bit of googling I see it has some great reviews.

I can’t read either of these until I finish my current reads.

Parkland by Dave Cullen, which is breaking my heart into so many pieces and making me smile at the same time. Such amazing young people who have the balls to fight back against the NRA. I will give you a full review – it’s touching me in a way I didn’t think it could. It also makes me feel a little helpless.

Sister by Rosamund Lupton. I’m enjoying this thriller so far and getting into the story. It’s an easy read and I’m hoping for some twists and turns. Right now I have no idea what’s going to happen (which I love).

This rainy Melbourne weather is perfect for reading and blogging and I’m certainly excited for all my upcoming reads.
