Weekend Reads #94

Happy Friday Readers and as an extra bonus I am off work. It is Good Friday here in the UK and nearly every business gets this off work. Clearly the tables turned in favour for me though because I am off work this entire weekend so a bit of extra time to myself.

This weekend I am hoping to start a book that I have had on my TBR for a long time, I received it as a gift at Christmas time and have heard nothing but great things about it. It’s called The Girls by Emma Cline and I knew I had to read it as soon as I found out it was about the girls who followed Charles Manson.

A few months back I listened to a podcast about Charles Manson and was shocked and equally intrigued by his ability to mind wash and recruit people to follow him out to the desert. It really amazed me because he was even manipulating celebrities and people of influence. Even now I find this gruesome and historic murder intriguing so I’m really interested to see how Emma Cline portrays these girls and their lives living with one of America most well – known cult leaders.

 So readers, Easter eggs at the ready because that’s exactly how I will be spending my weekend; books and chocolate, the perfect combination.
