TOUR, EXCERPT, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - A Monster Of All Time: The True Story of Danny Rolling, The Gainesville Ripper by JT Hunter
A Monster Of All Time: The True Story of Danny Rolling, The Gainesville Ripper - JT Hunter

@partnersincr1me‚Äč, #TrueCrime, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

It's not very often I venture out of my fantasy/paranormal bubble. I usually read to escape from reality, not learn about the horrific nature of what's out there. However, my guilty pleasure is True Crime, if only for the fact it reminds me just how good it is to escape!

This is one of those books. The one where I can't put it down, gripped by morbid fascination to find out what happened to the killer, even as I mourn his victims. I'm from the UK, and so have no real grasp about the death sentence, being as the last person died in 1964, but these books do make me wonder. I find myself wondering if he would EVER have changed. I seriously doubt it considering the run up to the murders. Why should the tax payer have to cough up for his keep and health, when he so brutally extinguished the lives of eight people? I don't know. I don't have the answers. What I do have is more information about this 'man', what he did, the aftermath, and other people that were involved.

This book is non-fiction, but at times, it almost reads like fiction. The writing style was easy to follow, and not being as dry as some I have read. It is very graphic in parts, but no pictures. I loved how he isn't referred to by name during the time he was actually committing the crimes, and how the ending was about the victims - they are the ones whose names we should remember, not his.

I can't say I thoroughly enjoyed this book. That would just be wrong. However, I can say that it is excellently written, without glamorising the murders, or the murderer. If you like true crime, then I can definitely recommend this one.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

The Monster
The Monster: A Story of NeverNeath - Dar... The Monster: A Story of NeverNeath - Darynda Jones
A Story of NeverNeath, Parts I & II

I Picked Up This Book Because: Author sent it in email

The Characters:

Indigo “Iggy” Wouck:
Francesca “Frankie” Michelle Vincent:
Vivi and Frankie’s other friend (I forgot to write down her name)

The Story:

These first two parts are really just the tip of the iceberg on this story. We have our two main characters and a ton of questions. Tons of potential! I can’t wait until we get the next chapters.


The Random Thoughts:



4 Stars

Golem in My Glovebox (A Monster Haven Story)
Golem in My Glovebox (A Monster Haven Story) - R.L. Naquin Road Trip. Ok so this road trip is not all fun and games actually it is no fun but lots of games. Head games. Someone is killing all of the Aegis. Its up to Zoey Donovan to stop the killer and save her mother. oh yea and not end up dead herself.

The road trip comes in ans her and Riley are headed to the Hidden's Headquarters. once they arrive there they are sent to investigate a murder of an Aegis, from there they end up pretty much touring the country investigating other Aegis murders all while trying to track down her mother before she ends up on the list of murdered. Will it be a funeral or a happy ending?

I love this series and cannot wait to get started on the next book in this series. Zoey can really get herself into a lot of messes but between her Friends who are also her family she always seems to come out on top.
