Book Review: Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered
Good Morning Murderinos and Meowderinos!
Today’s book review is close to my heart. It’s the book written by the creators of the podcast My Favorite Murder, Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered!
I’ve always been a fan of true crime, from my childhood days of watching Unsolved Mysteries, to my strange habit of watching Cold Case Files while on the treadmill.
There’s just always been something about the subject that intrigues me. I was fortunate enough to attend a local event in Kansas City with a close friend Morgan, and we got to purchase copies of the book and have a sit down with fellow Murderinos and talk about all our favorite true-crime topics.
Talk about a great time! I loved talking with my local tribe of Murderinos, and it was great to gush about everything we loved about the podcast and others similar to it.
That being said, let’s move on with the review!
I gave this book four true-crime-podcasting stars!
I’ve been a fan of the My Favorite Murder Podcast shortly after it began, thanks in large part to my friend Maggie. Man, the hours I’ve logged on my podcast app just listening to them!
So when I heard this memoir was coming out, I just had to jump on the opportunity. Now, memoirs and non-fiction works aren’t really my thing, but I’ve been listening to the podcast for several years, so this is my small way of paying it forward.
I really enjoyed this memoir. It was a light, quirky read and always funny. Karen and Georgia break down the inspiration behind several great sayings from their podcast, illuminating more on their lives and what led them to create My Favorite Murder.
‘Fuck Politeness’, ‘You’re in a Cult, Call Your Dad’, ‘Stay Out of the Forest’, etc etc. Each saying is explained in general, then expanded upon based on personal experience.
The writing itself was really great, and I like that they didn’t censor out all the f-bombs and other creative curses because that is one of my favorite parts of the MFM podcast. They don’t hold back, and they’re brave and courageous.
While I probably won’t read this again, I was glad to get to know a bit more about Karen and Georgia, and now I have even more reason to catch up on the podcast!
If you’re a Murderino and can’t get enough Karen and Georgia (I’m a Karen btw), then this book is for you!
