I have a confession to make.
I’m one of those true crime aficionados. It doesn’t matter what the crime is (though let’s be honest, you know what the big one is). I will devour a book, tv show, and Netflix documentary. Looking at you, Making of a Murderer.
I know I’m not alone because True Crime is one of the most popular categories of books out there. Yet, few like to admit out loud that they enjoy reading about this stuff.
So when I meet someone who tells me in hushed tones that they ALSO are into murder and gore, it’s like finding a soul mate. I hang on to them for dear life and ask them for recommendations.
I find getting into the why behind the actions of someone who does something so unthinkable fascinating.
Now, I like to pretend that I am a high-minded reader. But, the fact of the matter is, I read a lot of topics because that’s the way I’m built. I have a lot of things I like. Occasionally, something classy will fall into the mix between YA fantasy, baseball reads, and classic true crime.
But in this post, I want to focus on the true crime of it all. I’m gonna share some of my favorite true crime books.
