Master List of Books Mentioned on My Favorite Murder #MFM

Master List of Books Mentioned on My Favorite Murder #MFM

Look. Look and listen. Happy Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered: The Definitive How To Guide week!! I dedicate this post to my fellow Murderinos- this is your master list of all of the books Karen and Georgia mention on My Favorite Murder. This was fun to make but a labor of love- I was only on episode 98 at the beginning of the year so I had a lot of catching up to do.

Here’s the thing. I am a massive fan of My Favorite Murder- but I’ve probably missed some.  I made this list in the most basic way possible- had a notes document going on my phone and would pause the podcast to write a book down when they mentioned it. If you find I forgot one and you’re so inclined, please send me the episode number and I’ll add it. I’ll also be updating this list as K + G put out more episodes. As with all of my book links on my blog- these links are affiliate links so I’ll make a couple coins if you make a purchase.

Here, by category and in alphabetical order, are the books mentioned in My Favorite Murder. I did the best I could with episode numbers, but lots are missing and that’s going to have to be fine. Happy reading! SSDGM.
