La casa de papel * Money Heist – Season 1 quote about domestic violence

So I’m currently watching Money Heist and I just heard a very truthful depiction on how domestic violence starts. Quote below: “It’s not what I imagine if I think of…” “Of what? Of a battered woman? Because I carry a gun, don’t I? Look, the fact is, it doesn’t start with a slap. If so,Continue reading “La casa de papel * Money Heist – Season 1 quote about domestic violence”

The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino Book Review

What an absolutely boring ride! I got attracted by the idea of a police investigation book set in Japan and the “Over 2 Million Sold!” sticker made me think that it couldn’t be that bad. This is one of the worst buys I’ve made this year as the suspense was not in the who’d doneContinue reading “The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino Book Review”

Say Nothing by Brad Parks Book Review

I picked this book up from the recommended Audiobooks Crime/Thriller section and I must say I absolutely loved it! The voice actor (George Newbern) really gives Judge Sampson a personality and is perfect for the women voices too! The story is brilliantly done, with multiple possible suspects and a few cases which only show howContinue reading “Say Nothing by Brad Parks Book Review”

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter Book Review

This is my second book by Karin Slaughter and I think “Pretty Girls” is almost as good as The Good Daughter and it even shares some of the common themes: fractured family caused by a murder/disappearance of a loved one, two sisters very different from each other working together to find the killer, a prolific serialContinue reading “Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter Book Review”

Karin Slaughter * The Good Daughter

Imagine one of the most horrible things that can happen in a small town. A school shooting. A teenager walks into a middle school and kills the counsellor and a young girl. The Boston Marathon attacks. San Bernardino. The Pulse Nightclub. People were outraged. They were glued to their televisions, to their web pages, toContinue reading “Karin Slaughter * The Good Daughter”

One Door Away from Heaven * Dean Koontz
