True Crime

Whitley Abell @whitleyabell · Jun 12

Have I mentioned I'm looking for nonfiction? Because I am.
Especially narrative nonfiction.
And especially true crime.
And especially for YA.

My current nonfiction #MSWL: true crime, history/politics, philosophy, military history, astronomy, astrophysics, "weird" science, philosophy, select memoirs, and earth sciences by experts in their field, especially volcanology or SHARKS. I cannot stress SHARKS enough. #querytip

Guys, idk if this exists outside my brain, but I would really REALLY love a ensemble novel (or narr NF) about a group of true crime enthusiasts on Reddit hunting a killer. Bonus points for intersectional feminism or YA

Same, friends. Would love a killer contemporary voice! #mswl twitter.com/laurenspieller…

I'm sure you can guess what I'm going to say I initially read this as, but just in case...

Killer voice + a contemporary story worthy of true crime coverage, s'il vous plaît

I would DIE for a YA about a teen girl obsessed with true crime. #MSWL

Looking for some strong voices in nonfiction at the moment! I am especially itchy for true crime (think Forensic Files!), compelling narrative memoirs, career/personal development/growth, or select works in the health sector (cancer, Alzheimer's, brain/memory books) #MSWL

Ooh also: Patty Hearst. Or just true crime, in general. Or something about how genuinely frightening the 70s were. #MSWL

Sometimes I forget not everyone grew up with a mother obsessed with true crime and serial killers. A novel along the lines of Netflix's MINDHUNTER meets THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES would be 👌🙌 #MSWL

Real life is stranger than #fiction. Here's an example of #TrueCrime and #thriller that I’d love to see! #MSWL - Woman accused of poisoning lookalike with cheesecake, stealing her identity - Fox News apple.news/AmFKIp4-1TpCf7…

On the non-fiction side I'm hoping for some gritty true-crime and historical narrative non-fiction in the vein of THE BOYS IN THE BOAT #MSWL

A contemporary spin on the heist, comp: THE ASSISTANTS #MSWL

Replying to @Bibi_Lewis

Narrative true crime that glues my eyes to the page & gets me invested in the characters--not just crime, comp: ALICE + FRIDA FOREVER #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 8 Feb 2017

Sexy, awful, fascinating, dark true crime, for adult or YA a la @MyFavMurder or Making A Murderer. #MSWL

Carlisle Webber @carliebeth · 8 Feb 2017

Fiction based around an incident of true crime #MSWL

I want narrative nonfiction with a strong platform about true crime, health, unknown important historical events... #MSWL
