2. Adult thrillers/suspense: I like stories w/ top notch characterization + a slow burn, and also stories that are gripping page turners that I finish in one sitting. A few favorites: Ruth Ware, Rhiannon Navin, Wendy Heard, Gillian Flynn, Danya Kukafka, Oyinkan Braithwaite #mswl

I’m eager to find YA thrillers, mysteries, psychological suspense that are brilliantly plotted. Think the work of Tiffany D. Jackson, Lamar Giles, E. Lockhart’s WE WERE LIARS, Karen McManus, etc. All would love to find original horror like WILDER GIRLS. #mswl

I'm also looking for that book-club/psych thriller middle-ground, in the vein of Liane Moriarty, where there are lots of dark secrets and surprising twists and characters that could be someone you know.

A deeply disturbing gorgeously written thriller from the POV of the psychopath. The main character is reminiscent of Amy Dunne with the same brilliance (and insanity!). #MSWL

Dark, twisted, borderline disturbing… these are all words I’d use to describe my interest in thrillers + my internet search history. Not really looking for gore at the moment, but definitely into psychological elements. Especially fictionalized accounts of actual crimes. #MSWL

BRUH, imagine this as a domestic suspense thriller? The stakes, tension, mystery surrounding a newly dead spouse or the fear a spouse has that their partner would commit murder to protect their job...I WANT IT!!! #mswl
