    I will always be a little bit heartbroken, I think, that I don t get to actually be best friends with Karen and Georgia

    I know I m in the minority, but Stay Sexy Don t Get Murdered The Definitive How To Guide didn t resonate with me I much prefer the podcasts, with discussions of true crime and impromptu jokes and antics Not that Karen Georgia s how I got here stories weren t interesting, it s that they simply weren t what I wanted from this comedic duo It seemed like they were trying to get real , but I could have done without the feel of the written, almost bloggy, stories Oh well I couldn t relate even though I desperately wanted to Back to the outrageous you never know what they ll say next podcasts for me.

    Here s what you do You make a thousand signs You put them up on street corners and community bulletin boards You hang them from ornate balconies and make them look like the flag of a new country Drag them behind planes and make them circle the cities of the world like you re announcing a new global superpower You turn the signs into clothing like those weird toilet paper ads The signs read KAREN KILGARIFF AND GEORGIA HARDSTARK HAVE WRITTEN THE GREATEST DUAL MEMOIR COLLECTION OF HUMOUROUS ESSAYS SOCIAL STUDY FEMINIST MANIFESTO ADVICE BOOK TRUE CRIME ANALYSIS EVER AND SURE THAT SOUNDS LIKE A QUALIFIED STATEMENT BUT IT IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE MY FAVOURITE BOOK OF THE YEAR YES EVEN THOUGH IT S ONLY FEBRUARY or something to that effect that might be catchier.I am overwhelmed with enthusiasm for this book It is actually, to use a clich d word, brilliant.

    4.5 starsI bought the hardback knowing I would want to share it with my adult daughter after I finished We entertained ourselves on a 7 hour road trip last year listening to My Favorite Murder MFM podcast episodes It s billed as a true crime comedy show which sounds like an oxymoron, but they make it work and are always respectful of victims.As soon as my daughter saw the book on my coffee table it disappeared Knowing I d never see it again lol , I downloaded the audio Am I ever glad I did Hearing Karen and Georgia s essays read by them, in their voice, and with their timing was perfect Paul Giamatti also made an appearance a couple of times which was fun.Unlike their true crime podcast, there s no true crime here It s part memoir, part advice column on a variety of topics They are open, honest, and vulnerable For anyone who has ever struggled with low self esteem, family dysfunction, eating disorders, depression, addiction.or know people who have the same struggles.you will find a lot to relate to in this book There were moments where I laughed and moments that made me cry They have both overcome a lot in their lives and their success story is inspiring They remain humble and grateful.If you re a MFM fan you will enjoy this book If you re not a MFM fan you will enjoy this book Recommended edited to add the awesome book title is their tag line and they end every podcast with those words If you re not a listener of their podcast be aware there s strong language.

    Hate to say this but I didn t really enjoy this book I have listened to KG s podcast for a couple of years now and love it, but I didn t feel like their speaking voices translated well to writing Unfortunately, that really is how this book was written it s very informal and sounds like something you would read on a blog, not in a book I know that many people do enjoy that type of writing style which is fine , but it s not my cup of tea One other disappointing thing about the writing was that the humor aspect didn t seem to stick the landing as well as it does in the podcast Karen, for example, typically makes me laugh out loud whenever I listen to an episode Reading her jokes on paper, however, made me cringe Example In the introduction to the book, Karen begins by thanking the readers for being supportive of KG, but about a paragraph into the thank you states Bless us all, but mostly the people who actually spent moneyquit getting your finger grease all over our beautiful, pristine publication and just buy it In fact, buy three Yuck, that just rubs me the wrong way and I did buy it I also wasn t a fan of how this book felt like a self help advice column than a memoir I knew the true crime aspect was going to be toned down a lot, which I honestly didn t mind, but something about KG s guidance kind of bothered me Maybe I just didn t know what to expect and was hoping I would be satisfied with whatever this book would end up being Oh well it s a good thing I got a preorder discount I guess For all the MFM fans out there, I m a fan too I m sorry to burst your bubble with my book review.

    Disclaimer I love MFM While you normally can t bribe me enough to leave my house to go to a simple movie, I ve literally paid money to go to several live shows of the podcast, even though it meant combining three of my least favorite, anxiety inducing things, crowds, heights, and stadium seating with death seats MFM isn t perfect, but it s than just a podcast I enjoy it s something my bff and I bond over, a funny way to feel less alone about some of my anxieties, and it s one of my current favorite things So, in all likelihood, I was going to either 1 love this book, or 2 find it disappointing but lie about it for the sake of my love for the podcast Thankfully, it s the first case I didn t necessarily read it in one sitting I actually ended up reading it split up, because I switched to the audiobook after originally starting on the ebook and flipping through the hardback I brought my bff , and overall, I d call it of a 4.25 to a 4.5, but still, general love I m going to break this for the two audiences If you are a fan of the podcast already There s a good chance you ll love it They do talk about things they ve discussed on the podcast, but they go into detail and depth in a heartbreaking, hilarious matter They also talk about stories and situations they ve never talked about on the show Obviously, the tone s different it s demonstrative and narrative With MFM, it s like you re sitting at a table next to with Karen and Georgia and Steven as they re talking With SSDGM, it s like they re talking to you, the reader, directly in a one on one long phone conversation The book had its awkward, clunky parts I think they were trying to keep the podcast vibe going too strongly and the tone didn t translate well in parts but overall, I still loved it If you ve never listened to or are only a little familiar with the podcast I don t think you d necessarily be lost They explain the background behind what they re saying and some of the inside jokes In fact, in some ways, this book would be great to recommend to people to explain the kind hearts behind a true crime comedy podcast e.g., we are not horrible people laughing at murder we are people with anxiety who talk about terrible things because they happen and the only way we can deal with anything is to be sarcastic while we do it and it reveals the people and motivations behind the podcast But it s definitely not a true crime read whatsoever, and I don t think a general reader would want to read it if they didn t have any interest in the podcast tl dr SSDGM Read it when you get the chance 3pre read 8 14 18 I ve deeply suspected and profoundly hoped that this no doubt beautiful ode to true crime, anxiety, and the freedom of how to stop worrying and learning to love your weird self would happen I was so very pleased and proud with absolutely no foundation to hear them announce the publication date I will be stalking all the sites for an ARC as well as pre ordering Yay murderinos

    The epitome of fucking politeness is learning how to act in the moment, instead of wishing you had later If you re a fan of the My Favorite Murder podcast, then there s a good chance of you enjoying this part memoir part self help book Lacking in true crime itself which totally works , it shines a light on the other topics and discussions that come up regularly on the show, such as mental health issues, self care and addiction.For each of the catchphrases or slogans that the show has created, eg Fuck Politeness or Stay Out of the Forest, there s essays from Karen and Georgia discussing their own life experiences or what that slogan truly means to them I have heard the audiobook is fantastic as it is just like listening to the podcast, so I ll have to check that out at some point too I laughed, I cried and I fangirled immensely over Georgia s chapter on how Ray Bradbury s writing effectively saved her life One of the hardest essays to read was one where Karen writes about her late mother and her battle with Alzheimer s She describes a moment where their mother came back to tell her sister that she truly loved the two of them and I actually thought my heart was going to split in two.But amongst all the tears and emotion, there s so much humour, as to be expected from these two Karen s guide on how to be a latchkey kid is hilarious, as is her analogy that being an alcoholic is like shitting in a hot tub ie killing the buzz of everyone around you LOL And there were quite a few Stephen King references as well, which I particularly enjoyed I feel like the story of how Georgia got into true crime is something that a lot of us murderinos can relate to.This is everything I thought it would be empowering, uplifting and honest However, I would mostly recommend this to those who listen to the podcast, otherwise you d be left scratching your head as to how the title fits and where all the gruesome, gory details are Unless of course, you just like reading the memoirs of strong, funny women then it could be right up your street 5 stars

    A MUST READ FOR ALL 5 I really needed to hear that stars for Stay Sexy Don t Get Murdered Words cannot describe how perfectly pertinent this book was to my present life And if I can get real with you, it s kinda like walking into a deeply personal therapy session And I know the word therapy is weird and scary and defeating, but it shouldn t be I ve gone For 6 years in fact And it changed my life And this book makes you realize that life is messy and hard and you need an advocate to help you get back on track You need clutch friends and you need to forgive yourself.God, I cried so hard during the first two chapters And then some in chapter 5 I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF throughout all of chapter 4 because THAT WAS MY LIFE And I was totally moved when both Karen and Georgia admitted that we re always making mistakes and learning from them and that s OKAY.This book is a collection of essays The topics range from eating disorders, alcoholism, being the product of a broken home, anxiety, true crime obviously , a love for reading, and friendship.It s so relevant that it s almost BIG BROTHER nuts But the bottom line is this We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out Ray Bradbury.YOU ALL ARE SWEET BABY ANGELS Thank you for taking the time to read this I LOVE YOU.Elvis, want a cookie BYEEEEEEEE
