August 2020 Read of the Month
Before, when I was on a regular writing routine I would share my monthly "Read of the Month." I would usually write two posts. One post to introduce the book and then another post later in the month with my review of the book. Since I am back on a regular writing routine I thought it was best to bring back my "Book of the Month" posts as well.
This month I will be reading The Brothers: The Road to an American Tragedy. This "true crime" genre book is authored by Masha Gessen a writer for The New Yorker and author of eleven books. This book tells the story of brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and their despicable crime (exploding two homemade bombs at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon).

I selected this title because bombing was fresh in my mind after reading that an appeals court had recently thrown out Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death sentence for his role in the 2013 bombing. I actually forgot that one of the two brothers was killed during the arrest/capture of the bombers until looking up information for this blog post. I look forward to competing this book next week (it's on the way to my house as I type) and I will provide my review/recap as soon as I finish.
