While the reading was good in August, I struggled to find a good book in September. Why is it hard to find something to sink your teeth into, even when you have a physical bookshelf and a digital bookshelf full of things you’ve been wanting to read?!
My Friend Michael: An Ordinary Friendship with an Extraordinary Man by Frank Cascio
I’m going to be upfront here, this was by far the best thing I read this month. The author, whose family were long-time friends of Michael Jackson, wrote all about his relationship with the King of Pop. In addition to being his friend, he worked with/for Michael for several years. It’s a pretty rare, intimate look at Michael’s life and a must-read for any MJ fan.
I was really excited to see this in a BookBub email one day! If you’ve been reading The Winston Hours for a while, you know that I am interested in true crime. Part of that interest lies in the psychology behind killers so this book sounded right up my alley. My excitement faded pretty quickly, though. There are so many statistics, one right after the other. I know that might sound like a silly complaint but I cannot handle having numbers thrown at me rapid-fire and, unfortunately, that’s what this book felt like. It didn’t seem like there was much of a narrative, just stats. I might give it another go but right now it’s sitting on page 30 on my e-reader.
