True Crime

I'm a true crime junkie and love crime stories with lots of twists and turns. #MSWL

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

Would love to see some true crime, especially with a personal angle. Some of my favorites:
- I'LL BE GONE IN THE DARK (McNamara)
- IN COLD BLOOD (Capote)
- WHO KILLED THESE GIRLS? (Lowry) #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

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

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 8 Feb 2017

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

Lane Heymont @LaneHeymont · 15 Dec 2016

True crime, politics, pop-culture, science, history, journalists, etc. #MSWL

#MSWL: science, true crime, sociology, narrative history, everything feminist, health & wellness, and tear-inducing contemporary YA.
