I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
5 OUT OF 5 STARS
“Sometimes hope could be the most frightening thing in the world.”
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I love books, TV shows, documentaries, movies, etc. about murder and serial killers. If I’m not reading or catching up on my DVR, then my TV always has the Investigation Discovery channel on. So I of course wanted to read (well listen in this case) this book as soon as I read the description. It was so easy to follow along with the story and it was so good! Throughout the entire book I was trying to figure out who the killer was along with Jasper, his friends, and the police. Turns out, I was wrong the entire time and I never would have guessed! It was so fun trying though! Lots of “Oh my gosh” moments and “WHAAAAT!?” moments.
I loved Jasper and his girlfriend Connie and best friend Howie. Jasper had some pretty awesome friends to help him with some of the things he wanted to do. It was interesting getting an idea about how a child was raised by a serial killer. It was also heartbreaking that Jasper had to go through and deal with so much even after his father was arrested. It was really dark at times, but it was an interesting and really good read. I loved the book so much and the surprise ending was crazy! I really can’t wait to get the next book in the series! I’m disappointed that my library doesn’t have it 😦
I definitely recommend this book and especially if you’re into this type of thing; and mysteries and thrillers. It was so good!
“This is why I forgive, but I don’t forget. When you forget someone, the forgiveness doesn’t mean anything anymore.”
Goodreads Description: What if the world’s worst serial killer…was your dad? Jasper “Jazz” Dent is a likable teenager. A charmer, one might say. But he’s also the son of the world’s most infamous serial killer, and for Dear Old Dad, Take Your Son to Work Day was year-round. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could—from the criminal’s point of view. And now bodies are piling up in Lobo’s Nod. In an effort to clear his name, Jazz joins the police in a hunt for a new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret—could he be more like his father than anyone knows?
“We humans have the capacity to wreak horrors on each other. But we also have the capacity to survive those horrors.”

I sadly didn’t do as many posts as I wanted to do, but I still have some tags I need to get to. Hopefully soon! I’ve been distracted with either reading or TV. Hannibal returned!! And I mentioned before how I’ve been obsessed with Orphan Black and have been watching that. Next Friday Orange Is the New Black returns, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be binge watching that. I actually told my boyfriend that he better ask for the day off work, because I would be watching it without him if he didn’t. 😛
