Read from June 26 to July 14, 2012 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I have been wanting to read this book for quite some time and Summer 2012 is the time. I will be reading this book as part of the Summer 2012 Reading Challenge in the Dare to Dream group. The Bride Collector will meet the following requirements:

July 2012 is Cord Blood Awareness month

Read a book this summer that has the letters B-L-O-O-D in the title (these letters do not have to be in order)

August is National Immunization Awareness Month

Read a book this summer in which a CHARACTER GETS SHOT

I started out really liking the killer and the way he thinks then I started feeling hmmm there's something really wrong with this guy and the way he thinks. As the book progressed the subject of mental illness was delved into more and more and I liked the way Dekker makes us contemplate this issue. We are all "mentally ill" in some way - there's funny little quirks and ways we do things differently - isn't it time that we embrace the uniqueness in all of us and see them as gifts rather than challenges? This is a nice story, with subject matter worth thinking about and a setting in Colorful Colorado.

Now, It's time to meet the killer inside of me :-) Maybe I can be a "good" killer like Dexter and use my gifts to benefit society.

Dustin I LOVE Dekker's work!

J.S. Bailey I have this one sitting on my bookshelf but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I have soooooo many unread books sitting around...
