    I’m thrilled that two of my all-time favorite authors, J.M. Coetzee and Elizabeth Strout, have both made the list!

    Moonlight director Barry Jenkins is adapting that as his next project, so that combined with this win makes it a must-read for me!

    I just finished up For Laci by Sharon Rocha. Obviously it was going to be extremely colored considering she was Laci’s mother but damn, Scott was guilty. Wasn’t too great as either a true crime novel or a memoir but served its purpose well. In terms of me reading more about the case I think I would have preferred a third party writer though. It got to a point where it was like “We were in a supermarket together shopping once and Scott saw a baby but didn’t smile at it… I should have known then” and after the murder “well I was walking down the street and some panhandling tweaker recognized me and told me that he kept a picture of Laci in the hat where he collects spare change from passersby and he told me I give him so much hope and Laci is an angel in heaven.” Heartless of me to say, I know, but it did get a little glurge-y at times, even though she was well within her rights as Laci’s mother to do so and 100% understandable, even if it got a little much at times form a reader’s standpoint. Though the whole time I was reading, I remembered Evelyn Hernandez and “hey, remember when nobody gave a shit about her, because of this case?” Yeah, the Laci case was more dramatic in that her heartless bastard husband was pretending to give a shit the whole time but I feel bad for Evelyn too.

    Right now I’m reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. I had picked it up because it was on a list of 50 must-read books and right now I cannot for the life of me understand why this was in the same list as Anna Karenina and Crime and Punishment. It’s not that great. Though I can already see a Netflix series made about it with people gushing over it. But I’ve only ever given up on two books for as long as I can remember and I’ll be damned if I’m giving up now.

    Curious Incident was already turned into a hit stage play, which won seven Olivier awards in London (including Best Play) and five Tony awards in New York (including Best Play). I haven’t read the book, but the play was gripping.

    I’m just starting on The Late Show, Michael Connelly’s new novel.

    I’m reading “Truly Madly Guily” by Liane Moriarty and so far I’m really struggling to see why so many people told me “I had to read it”, and “It’s so good”.It is quick moving I’ll give the book that though.
