BLOGTOBER DAY 29: Mindhunter by John Douglas // Review


Title: 
Mindhunter by John Douglas

Rating: ★★★★★

Release: 2nd November 2017

Synopsis: John Douglas is a former FBI Special Agent and expert in criminal profiling and behavioural science. He made a career of looking evil in the eye – and understanding it. No wonder that he was the inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, as well as the film’s consultant on the reality of serial killers. Douglas invented and established the practice of criminal profiling, and submerged himself in the world of serial killers in a quest to understand why they killed, and to help prevent more innocent lives from being ended by future killers. As his serial crime unit developed from a derided two-bit operation in a dingy officer to one of the FBI’s elite task forces, Douglas personally confronted the most terrible crimes of the age, including those of Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Atlanta child murderer.divider-2461548_1280

Now a bestselling Netflix Original series, this is where it all began. The hunt for serial killers, and the basis for what we know about the most evil minds of the world.

BLOGTOBER DAY 24: Thrillers From BooksandLala’s Favourites I Want to Read!

Hi everyone!

I’m (finally) back with another very belated blogtober post! I’ve not been well for the last week or so, so the blogtober posts got pushed back a little bit. However I am determined to catch up!

Today I wanted to share some of the books on BooksandLala’s favourites list that I am desperate to read! I absolutely adore her, and her reading style is not only very similar to mine, but I also just completely trust her recommendations and she’s my favourite Booktuber!

She also has A LOT of books on her favourites list, so I’m only going to choose a couple that I’m excited to read – otherwise this post would be SUPER long!

Let’s go!divider-2461548_1280

Title: I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara

Rating: ★★★★★

Release: 28th February 2018

Synopsis: The masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer – the serial rapist turned murderer who terrorised California for over a decade – from the late Michelle McNamara. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark offers a unique snapshot of suburban West Coast America in the 1980s, and a chilling account of the wreckage left behind by a criminal mastermind. It is also a portrait of one woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth, three decades later, in spite of the personal cost.divider-2461548_1280

The masterful record of one of the most talked about true crime cases in the world, this book is truly a wonderful piece of work.

Autumn Book Tag!

Hi everyone!

As I’m easing myself back into blogging, I’m trying to do some tags as they’re fun for the whole family! I find them fun to do, and a lot quicker than a review, and I hope you’re enjoying them too!

It’s finally the best time of the year – AUTUMN!!!! I have been sweating since the start of summer so I am so ready for weather that includes wearing jumpers, drinking hot drinks and cuddling under some blankets!!!

Also BOOK RELEASE TIME ANYONE??? My bank account is going to SUFFER!! Anyway this week I’ve finally started back at work after 3 months off sick (catch up on what’s been going on here – Where Have I Been?) so I’m sorry if my blog posts are a bit infrequent – it’s a pretty scary week for me!!!

Anyway thank you to my lovely Sarah from Book Hooked Nook tagged me in this – go check her out!

Let’s go!divider-2461548_1280
