I think reading is incredibly underrated nowadays. I love to read but do not get to do it nearly as much as I would like. I have some pretty serious thoughts about reading. I refuse to read on a tablet or nook or fire or whatever you crazy kids are using now. I also refuse to use libraries. I like to own my books. I also won’t usually start a book unless I can finish it that same day. I just need to know what happens! I don’t typically read new authors. I like to stick to a set of characters I like and read the series. Unfortunately, many of my favorite authors cannot write as fast as I can read (work on that please). I thought I would share a list of my favorite authors for those of us who still find reading enjoyable.
- Jonathon Kellerman: I really just like the Alex Delaware series. I like psychological thrillers or anything involving the mind. Alex Delaware is a psychologist that assists the police department.
- Mary Burton: All about police work with a side of romance. Each book I have read pairs up some sort of psychologist with a police love interest. It sounds cheesy but the murders are super creepy.
- Karin Slaughter: murder, murder, murder and with a name like that would you expect anything less? She is probably the creepiest writer I have encountered and I can never figure out all the twists! I like the Will Trent series and I honestly have a crush on him!
Since I get to read so infrequently, those are typically the authors I reach for on the bookshelf. As you can see, I have a common theme. Are there any psychological thrillers you can recommend?
