One thing I can't get enough of? True crime. Whether it's a docuseries on Netflix, a book on Scribd, or a podcast on iTunes, I'm always down to invest entirely too much time into these stories. Sometimes they can be frustrating — heartbreaking, even — but sometimes they can be inspiring. If you're anything like me, you're going to love these true crime books to read this summer during those rare times the kids are out of your hair.
The following books are true crime stories that are now available on Scribd, a subscription service for audio and e-books. I am not afraid to admit that I still love the smell and feel of a good old fashioned book in my hand. But, sometimes downloading a book onto my phone is a total lifesaver. Like when I'm traveling and I've forgotten and/or finished the book, or when I'm poolside in the warm weather — in-between sunscreen lathering, obviously.
Those of you familiar with some of the more notable true crime cases will definitely appreciate the books focusing on Son of Sam and the Golden State Killer. For those of you who might not live and breathe the true crime genre but are interested in a taste: buckle up. It's going to be an extremely bumpy (but still fascinating) ride into the literary world of true crime.
