Nonfiction Murderers, Monsters, and Mayhem-Makers

Today I have a guest post over Jenn’s Bookshelves as part of her Murder, Monsters, & Mayhem celebration this October. For the post, I picked three different nonfiction books I think well-represent murder, monsters, and mayhem… depending on what you’re in the mood for reading.

Unrelated, I also had my first new post up on Book Riot last week in which I confess to my habit of turning classic literature into a daytime soap opera and excitement about a new translation of an old book in which a famous hero gets called a son of a bitch. Could that be any more cryptic?

In any case, I hope you’ll hope around the Interwebs and check out some of my other writing this week (and offer your suggestions about bookish decorating ideas for my new office!).

Thanks again for contributing! I’ve read IN COLD BLOOD and THE MONSTER OF FLORENCE. You gave me yet another reason to pick up THE POISONER’S HANDBOOK!

As I wrote on the post–great insights. Non-fiction is scary! I know these 3 books will keep me up at nite. ;)

In Cold Blood is especially chilling. I couldn’t read that one at night.
