Adult Thrillers: I recently found a LOVE for this and am craving to read more. I love a dark academia setting, serial killers, stalkers, locked in a room/home. I love not being able to figure something out until the end, give me unexpected twists and turns, keep me guessing! 12/

Since it's still January, time for an updated 2024 #MSWL ! I'm currently really on the lookout for psychological thriller (a la Riley Sager), mysteries (cozy and whodunnits please), and light horror (nothing too gory, I want to sleep at night). Dark academia a plus as well!

Ultimately, if the vibes are dark academia, witchy, creepy forests, poisonous plants, gothic (whether horror or historical!), or anything with a charismatic leader and a cult, it’s right up my alley.
