I read so many professional resources that I look forward to escaping into one of my favorite genres: psychological thrillers. I read the well-publicized best-sellers; have read Gillian Flynn, A. J, Flynn, Harlan Coben (check out the crazy piece on him in a recent New Yorker), and just read The Dry by Jane Harper. Now I’m just starting the Silent Patient (rainy, icy Sunday so it’s perfect to tuck into), the debut novel by Alex Michaelides (no spoilers please :). The thrillers I choose are dark and suspenseful – just what I like, but I read them as a great escape and distraction from work and technology and sometimes real life. It’s not great “literature” – though I do enjoy that, too! But give me mysteries any time.
I also love watching scandi-noir and British series on Netflix, though I HATE that they took the subtitles away and overdubbed them! If you’re interested, check out Bordertown, Broadchurch, The Fall, Trapped, The Lava Field, Fortitude, The Break (Belgian), No Second Chance, and The Frozen Dead.
Should you read this, I always enjoy some good recommendations. Thanks, in advance!
