Hey You! Read This! (The Twisted Love Story Edition) #ValentinesDay

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.  I have done this a few times before and focused on abduction thrillers and domestic thrillers.

Today, in honour of Valentine’s Day, I figured I would take a look at some of my favourite twisted love stories.  You know, boy likes girl, boy stalks the girl, boy shoves girl in a suitcase and carries her around with him.  Aw…young love!

Twisted love stories are some of my favourite types of novels to read.   From unrequited love to family members getting a little bit too close, I always get lost in the psychosis of the main characters and the strange rationales they find to justify their obsessions.   I also find them to be such a quick read!  Each of the novels that made my list were completely “unputdownable”!

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

I don’t know about you, but some of my favourite novels are the ones that have a fierce mother at the center of them.

The mothers that will fight for their children, the mothers that will go to the ends of the Earth to protect their children and the mothers that give antagonists a run for their money.

Let’s get real people: mothers are kick ass.
