    Most recent staff pick: Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History by Tori Telfer

    We've all heard of Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy, and the rest, but in Lady Killers, Tori Telfer dives in to the significantly less explored area of female serial killers. Each chapter focuses on a different monster, some that you may have heard of—Elizabeth Báthory, aka the Blood Countess—but most that you haven't. Pro tip: If a woman's hanging around outside your building asking if any old men live there, she's probably looking for a new mark. Hide the arsenic!

    Though the Golden State Killer has since been identified, Michelle McNamara's account of her obsessive quest to unmask the man who terrorized California in the 1970s and 80s is still an engrossing mystery that will keep you up all night. The book provides a terrifying history of the GSK's crimes, but the chapters where McNamara turns her focus inward are the ones that really stand out.

    Have you seen Magic Mike? No? You should fix that, but first read Zoey Castile's Stripped, which is like a book version of Magic Mike, only with more romance and less "wah wah, it sucks so much that my boyfriend is a stripper." It begins with a meet-cute over laundry and ends with our heroine finding herself and ~true love~ while hanging out with the boys of Mayhem City, an all-male revue led by a guy named Ricky who is just begging to have Matthew McConaughey play him in a film adaptation.
