Confession 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?
