Hey You! Read This! (The Domestic Thriller Edition)

Screen Shot 2017-01-04 at 5.43.21 PMConfession time: I am a bossy book reader.  I read books and then force people around me to read them make subtle and kind recommendations to others.

I cannot help it, I want to share the book love. I want to chat about what I’ve read.

Hence, why I started my “Hey, You!  Read This!” feature. This feature hones in on books I have read and would recommend in different genres and subgenres. Last time I did this feature, I focused on abduction thrillers.

Today, I figured I would take a look at another one of my favourite thriller subgenres: DOMESTIC THRILLERS. One of my favourite things about domestic thrillers (or marriage thrillers, as I have heard them called) is how close to home they can feel (see what I did there?). There is nothing like reading a story about the possibility of our nearest and dearest having some brutal secrets or behaviour.

Now, the classic domestic thrillers that come to mind are Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.   These are sort of the “OG” domestic thrillers that rebooted the genre and got everyone in a tizzy, so, for the sake of redundancy, I am leaving them off my list.

Interested to see what I did decide to throw on my list?

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-5-43-21-pmAfter taking a few weeks off, I am back in action with the “It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading?” post.  I cannot believe how much I rely on this post to keep me on track and focused for the upcoming week!  Needless to say, I missed it!

Last week, I went through a bit of a reading slump!  Between wedding events, another move and work, I was pretty much running on empty and struggled to finish just about any book!  Luckily, I feel better than ever now and am excited to get some serious reading done this week!

Last week was incredibly busy on Clues and Reviews.  I managed to read seven titles over the past week and have been working to organize my TBR pile.  I also made an exciting announcement with Chelsea over at The Suspense Is Thrilling Me about our online book club!  If you missed it, check it out HERE!  We are so excited and are hoping that as many people as possible are able to participate!

This week, I also hit my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal!  I have read 202 books so far this year which surpassed my goal of 200 books!
