Who doesn’t love a good mystery novel? I’ll be the first to admit that I tend to favor mysterious fiction with content others may deem dark or disturbing, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth reading. In fact, that might be the exact reason literature of this sort is worth seeing through to the end. After all, what one reader considers dark or disturbing, another might find beautiful, hopeful, and moving.
Here’s a couple that are joining my book self:
- Into The Water by Paula Hawkins
“With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.” – Goodreads
2. Little Deaths by Emma Flint
“Inspired by a true story, Little Deaths, like celebrated novels by Sarah Waters and Megan Abbot, is compelling literary crime fiction that explores the capacity for good and evil in us all.” – Goodreads
3. See What I have Done by Sarah Schmidt
“In this riveting debut novel, See What I Have Done, Sarah Schmidt recasts one of the most fascinating murder cases of all time into an intimate story of a volatile household and a family devoid of love.” – Goodreads
4. Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil
“This dark and disturbing psychological novel will appeal to fans of The Widow and The Butterfly Garden.” – Goodreads
