Summer's Best Books: #2 - Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered
Winter brings all of the worst books to the yard - memoirs from 22 year old Love Island alumni and autobiographies of old cricketers, anybody? But SUMMER IS NEARLY HERE! Which means an influx of books that you might actually feel something for… whether you’re a thrill-seeker, a romance lover or a non-fiction nerd (like me), 2019 promises to be a stellar year for actually enjoyable literature. This week, I’m running down the 10 books I’m most looking forward to reading this summer.
In no particular order, here’s number two!
TL;DR : Podcasting royalty turn a forensic eye onto themselves
For the uninitiated, My Favourite Murder is a tongue-in-cheek look at some of history’s most famous deaths - but that’s not the be-all and end-all. Karen & Georgia are hilarious - but also compassionate, often sharing their own stories as to why they’re so deeply affected and interested in serious crimes.
Their debut book looks at their struggles with addiction, depression, eating disorders and terrible mistakes than formed them into two of the most followed voices in the world.
I think it’s an incredibly important and timely book - beyond the title, they focus on the importance of personal safety in a world that wants women to be nice and helpful. Even when it gets bleak and dark, Karen & Georgia’s natural empathy and humour shines a light, meaning we’re able to face some of our worst fears head on, hand-in-hand with our intrepid guides.
I’ll read this on the bus home from the office, with an extra spring in my step.
Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered is released on 30th May 2019
