11 of the Best Books to Read in July: 'THE TRAP' BY MELANIE RAABE: If you think you know what's going on in this winding psychological thriller, you're probably wrong. Translated from the original German, this Misery-in-reverse story sees successful novelist Linda Conrads lure a man to her house because she thinks he killed her sister. But is she right?

American Psycho (2000) -- Wealthy NY businessman is secretly a serial killer. One of the best immersions into a character I have ever seen. Christian Bale is incredible in this role. The film is a razor sharp, darkly hilarious social commentary & totally engaging flick. Don't miss it. Mina Tepes Rating: 5 Fangs.
