Overall Rating: loved it! ❤️
Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered is the biography-like book from My Favorite Murder podcasters Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgariff. If you’re not familiar with the true crime comedy podcast duo, you might think this book is a how-to guide on avoiding being murdered while looking hot. In reality, it’s an empowering collection of stories pulled from the lives of these two formidable women as they overcame life struggles of drug addition, eating disorders, mental health issues, family trouble and their rise in the entertainment industry.
Now, before you start to think ‘Jesus that sounds awfully depressing’ – remember a few sentences ago when I said these women have a true crime comedy podcast? Well, they carry their exceptional talents for turning dismal topics into pure entertainment right into this book.
The first time I held this book in my hand was at BookCon it. It was beautiful and new and pristine and signed. SIGNED! Being a huge fan of the podcast, I stood there for a good 5 minutes saying to myself “I have to buy this right? Yeah. I need to buy it” at which point I turned around to head to line, saw it was a good 15-minutes long and promptly said “Eff that!” and put the book back. Needless to say, I’ve been kicking myself for not buying that signed copy ever since. GODDD IM SO MAD AT MYSELF! Anyway, I ended up listening to this book on Audible (because – PODCAST – DUH!) and like the best friends I’ve never met (see image below) their stories took me through a rollercoaster of emotions – laughing through every unexpected loop and 400-foot drop.
So, do I recommend it? HECK YEAH! And if you haven’t listen to the podcast yet, I strongly recommend you get on that too.
P.S. If anyone finds somewhere I can order a signed copy of this book, please let me know. I really am still kicking myself.
