#MSWL: On the hunt for some non-fiction! I'm a huge fan of pop culture (I worked with actors for 8 years and am an avid television fan), true crime (no mobs or cartels), and books about mental health (I recently read On Edge: A Journey Through Anxiety which I related to A LOT).

I'd love to get more narrative nonfiction with a strong platform. Maybe something pop science-y, psychology-y, true crime, flashy history, memoir. #MSWL

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

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

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 πŸ‘ŒπŸ™Œ #MSWL
