Weekend Reads- Links I Love for Week 41
Podcast of the week- Serial. I know this isn’t a groundbreaking recommendation, but Sarah Koenig is such a talented journalist and I feel like Season 3 hasn’t been getting the hype it deserves. Specifically, episodes 3 and 4 were incredibly eye opening, heartbreaking, frustrating, and overall a clear representation of the broken criminal justice system that exists within the U.S.
The Pet Sematary trailer is here! (Cue the Jonah Hill squee face!) I dont know if I’ll be able to see it, though. I can read the scariest books there are, but scary movies? Nope.
New Colson Whitehead! Set in the Jim Crow-era Florida in the 1960s, two friends Elwood and Turner deal with injustices in their segregated reform school in very different ways.
This Oklahoma mother’s anti-feminist brag goes viral… but there’s a positive ending!
Laura Lippman on using real life events as inspiration for crime fiction.
And finally: traveling the world sounds great. But have you ever tried embracing päntsdrunk?
