It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hi Bookworms!!
Welcome to a new week on my blog! Which means it is time for another It’s Monday! What are you Reading? This, along with the Sunday Post will probably be the only weekly features that I will do for a while, as my reading and review writing is suffering a bit, I seem to only be writing the memes and not the reviews, so I am going to focus on that for a while 🙂
Anyway, back on track, It’s Monday! is hosted by Kathryn over at Book Date and it is a place where we can share the books that we are currently reading, what we have just finished, and what we plan on reading next! It is a great way to keep organised and on top of reading! So here we go 🙂

Other than work, Fiona doesn’t as for much; the peace of the landscape; the companionship of her dogs; the safe haven of friends and family. Romantic entanglements are very far down her list – and certainly not with artist Simon Doyle. But he doesn’t know that Fiona harbours a terrible secret…

Title: In Cold Blood
Author: Truman Capote
Publishing: 2006 by Random House Audio
Format: Audio Book
Source: Borrowed from Library
Genre: True Crime; Non-Fiction
Progress: 35%
Goodreads’ Rating: 4.04 / 5 stars
Goodreads’ Synopsis: On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues.
As Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that lead to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, he generates both mesmerising suspense and astonishing empathy. In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American Violence.

  1. In Cold Blood is one of my favorite books and read it every few years. I’m always disgusted by the heinous crimes yet am in awe of how Capote was able to show the murderers as real people. Have a nice week!
