This is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey. In order to get some consistency to my posting I thought I’d jump on board this great idea. As a self-proclaimed bookaholic, I love talking about my books and finding out what others are reading. Having been a long time reader of multiple blogs where the ‘It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ post is prevalent, I thought it a natural progression I’d add to the mix.
Last week was a slow reading week as I wasn't able to devote as much time to reading as I would've liked. However I was able to finish a couple of books (click on the link to read my review):
- QUICK by Steve Worland
- MR MERCEDES by Stephen King
Here are my intended picks for this coming week, including what I’ve got on-the-go today:
THE FALL by Amy Dale (non-fiction, copy provided by Random House)
On July 30, 2011 a terrified woman ran for the door of the 15th storey, inner Sydney apartment she shared with her cruel and controlling fiance, desperately trying to escape. She wasn't quick enough. A hidden camera captured him covering her mouth to suppress her screams and dragging her back inside. Sixty-nine seconds later, Lisa Harnum was dead.
This is the case that captured the attention of a nation.
Amy Dale, Chief Court Reporter for The Daily Telegraph covered the case from the very beginning. Speaking to numerous sources including Lisa's counsellor, THE FALL goes behind the headlines of Australia's most captivating court case to tell the suffocating story of how Lisa fell in love but then grew to fear her overbearing fiance. Amy reveals information that wasn't publicly known leading up to and throughout the trial, including the fears for the star witness, Josh Rathemell, how close the trial came to not even happening, and the picture painted by what was found on Lisa's iPhone.
