I would have never watched "Mindhunter" if it weren't for my ex-boyfriend, the Twin (I talked about him briefly here). Like any other typical couple we were searching for something to watch together – which isn't always so easy. We scrolled our way through Netflix and then he told me about this new series "Mindhunter", which he already planned to watch anyway. So he asked me if I would be interested in watching it together. As I told you, I'm not really a fan of true crime stories, because...

Of course "True Blood" is old – but gold. And I know a lot of people who haven't seen a single episode to this day, which is why I want to draw attention to this series. What is True Blood about? It's basically a series about vampires. But. And I really mean BUT! It's unlike any other vampire related series/movie, I've ever seen – and believe me, I've seen plenty! "True Blood" shows a world where vampires are out in the open – meaning everyone knows they exist. This is only possible due...

Like I told you, I was – and still am – really obsessed with the whole O.J. Simpson murder trial and it's outcome. Even after reading the 3 books (Without a Doubt, The Run of His Life and In Contempt) and researching my desire to learn more about this was still not satisfied. Which is why I was very excited about the announcement of the documentary "O.J.: Made in America". As I didn't grew up really knowing who O.J. Simpson was and what big of an impact he had on society, it was the best...

Christopher Darden's book "In Contempt" was the third – and for now last – book I read in regards to the O.J. Simpson trial. It was next to Marcia Clark's "Without a Doubt" the second book I wanted to get my hands on as soon as possible. But it was one of the books that needed the most time to be reprinted. I already gave up my hopes to ever read it. Because it took forever. Every couple of weeks I searched the internet to find a reprint. And suddenly my time had come. Of course I bought...

The series "American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson" is based on the book "The Run of His Life: The People vs. O.J. Simpson" by Jeffrey Toobin. To meet my needs to get more informations about this murder case, I thought it best to read the book that was the foundation for this series. Another aspect made this book interesting to me. During the trial Robert Shapiro, one of Simpsons lawyers, gave an interview to a journalist. This interview was a turning point in the whole trial. It was...

The first book related to the O.J. Simpson case I read was "Without a Doubt" by Marcia Clark. It's the one I wanted to read the most. And here's why: Marcia Clark was the prosecutor in this infamous Simpson case. During the trial she got slammed, shamed and was ridiculed. Nowadays it's difficult to imagine, but 26 years ago the respect for women was unfortunately different, a lot has changed since (but there's still enough change that should happen). The way Marcia Clark was treated during "the...

Usually I would've never watched a series like "American Crime Story". But it got my attention because of my love for "Keeping up with the Kardashians". Love it or hate it, but this family sticks together – and this family dynamic is a rarity in today's society, so there's a huge value in watching how they support one another. So as I heard, that Selma Blair was going to portray Kris Jenner and David Schwimmer (of course I'm also a major "Friends"-Fan, but who isn't?) was going to portray...

I already mentioned this TV series in my blog post about Stassi Schroeder's book "Next Level Basic". And let me tell you if you haven't heard about Vanderpump Rules and have never watched an episode, PLEASE do so right now! This show is one of my favorites ever! What's it about: It's about a group of friends, all working at the same Restaurant called "Sur". The restaurant owner is Lisa Vanderpump – hence the name. Lisa Vanderpump is known in the Reality TV world for her participation in "The...

It doesn't happen often, that I love book so much, that I want to read it more than once. But with "Furious Love" by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger this was the case. I read the book back in 2014, and I'm still thinking of how much I loved it, and that I want to read it again. "Furious Love" is all about the relationship of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. As they weren't the stars of my generation, I didn't really know much of them. I knew that Elizabeth Taylor existed, but I didn't...

I can't even tell you how much I love Reality TV. For some it's trashy, "not real", or stupid – but the joke's on them, because as I always say, you can learn from everything. And if watching Reality TV taught me anything, it's that we all have the same issues to face in life. Which I love. I love to see how others deal with their lives and how they manage everything. Those who are seen in Reality TV live an extraordinary life, so they might have different obstacles, but the core values are...
