I've also updated my #MSWL page, and am particularly hungry at the moment for mysteries, suspense, and thrillers written by BIPOC writers and featuring main characters of color. Recent faves: AGE OF VICE, THE BANDIT QUEENS, THE VERIFIERS. (2/

I'm still desperately looking for something like THREE HOURS by Rosamund Lupton, both in sense of themes (issues driven suspense) and execution. I just couldn't put that book down and it left me with all kinds of emotions.

Something like that please! #mswl

-crime, thrillers and suspense. Either cosy (e.g Over My Dead Body by Maz Evans or Richard Osman-esque), blackly comic (like My Sister, the Serial Killer) or intelligent and inclusive (Gillian Flynn vibes). I also love novels that feature a 'beat the system' narrative

My main jam is thrillers, so I’d love to see more in this area. This includes horror (supernatural horror, not slasher horror), mystery, suspense, domestic thriller, psychological, etc. Fast-paced, high tension, high stakes, please! Ghosts & haunted houses are a huge draw for me.

FICTION: Adult, YA, some Upper MG
