Happy 2016! I’ve taken the first week of the New Year to do a bit of planning. Although I don’t really believe in making resolutions, I have quite a few goals for 2016 and I look forward to what’s to come. But first, let’s kick it off with the weekly Links I Like.

You already know I’m obsessed with the podcast Serial. If I’m being honest, this season hasn’t captivated me as much of the first season. But I’m no quitter, so I’m going to stick it out! My latest true crime guilty pleasure is Netflix’s Making a Murderer. I’m sure you’ve heard of it, and if not, have you been living under a rock!? Like many, I breezed through the 10 episode documentary but was left with questions, anger and frustration at our legal system.
I was able to quench my thirst for information thanks to this article on what to read after you finish the documentary. It also looks like Investigation Discovery is producing a special which will air later this month and “aims to fill in some of the gaps left by runaway smash Making a Murderer.”
