Debra Diggs | 1574 comments Thanks Krystyna. I will watch the movie this weekend. I am glad the library carries both the book and movie.

Have you read book and seen the movie?

No, I haven't yet. It is on my TBR (to be read) and TBW (to be watched). Currently, I am reading a true crime book that I cannot put down.

OMG! Let me know what you think about I'll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara. I read that when it was released and I loved it. I really don't see a true crime book surpassing this one, in my opinion. It was such a great book.

Finished The Broken Girls. It was just good (3 stars). The back story was the best part and I would have been thrilled if that alone was the entire book.
