I Hunt Killers. 

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.”

What are you currently reading right now? Any book recommendations?

Here are some posts from this week:

  • Friday Finds #17. – Some of the books I added to my TBR and Kindle this week.
  • WWW Wednesdays #9. – Books I’m currently reading, recently finished, and reading next.
  • May Reads Recap. – A look at all the books that I was able to get through in May.

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. 😛

  1. Woo! 200 followers, that’s fantastic, congratulations!
    I’m not a fan of this type of genre, it slightly scares and intimidates me, but this definitely sounds interesting for those lovers and likers of this genre. xoxo

    • So sorry for answering this so late, it was stuck in my spam comments! I just now decided to check if there was any spam comments and there were tons. Ahhh!
      Thanks for the congrats on 200 followers, it’s definitely exciting that so many people like my blog and what I post!

    When you finish A Court of Thorns and Roses I think that will make me the last person in the world who hasn’t read it (my library doesn’t have it – argh!). Happy reading! 🙂

    • Thank you! There are tons of books where I feel like I’m the last one that hasn’t read it. Like Cinder is one of the big ones for me. I haven’t read it yet and it’s been on my TBR since 2013! Everyone has read that it seems.

  3. Congrats on your 200 followers!!
    I saw this one on Book Outlet, I think, but I thought I wouldn’t like it so I didn’t purchase it. Regarding murders and serial killers, I watch Criminal Minds. I love that show! It has it’s faults but I like all the psychology stuff.

    • Thank you 🙂 !!
      I love Book Outlet! 🙂 it was a really good book. I haven’t seen many episodes of Criminal Minds, but the psychology stuff in regards to murders and serial killers is so interesting. I love watching the documentary type shows they play on the Investigation Discovery channel. It’s interesting to see how they think and why they did things.

      • Yea, I sometimes watch those shows as well. I like psychology and enjoy learning about what motivates people and propel them to do certain things.

  4. Congrats on your 200 followers!!!
    I Hunt Killers sounds like a great read… Really reminds me I have to start reading more thrillers again; great review! 😀 I love anything murder, serial killer, crime scene investigation as well; I’m watching a bunch of old CSI episodes as I type this. 😀 Have a great weekend!

    • Thank you!! 🙂
      It was a really great read! Definitely check it out if you like books like this and this subject. I used to watch CSI: Miami, but haven’t seen any CSI episodes in so long! I hope you’re having a great weekend too!
