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.

The way Marcia Clark was treated during "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...

Stassi Schroeder’s "Next Level Basic" is, in short, the perfect complement to her podcast "Straight Up With Stassi" and "Vanderpump Rules". Those who like her, listen to her podcast and watch her on TV will also like her book. You can read about some stories regarding the Reality TV show and her participating friends. You get another glimpse – like behind the scenes – into their lives. I have to admit that I am a fan of Stassi, she has always been my favourite protagonist of "Vanderpump...
