Have you ever read a thriller book that eerily parallels a situation in real life? Maybe you see on the news that your “quiet neighbor” down the street just got arrested for drug trafficking or beating his coworker into a coma.
Have you ever held someone’s hand and walked out of sync with them? It feels disjointed, even jarring.
Thriller books. Vintage fashion. Clothes refashioning. Gothic books. Sewing, Book recommendations. Sustainable fashion. Minimalism.
What do all of these topics have in common?
Thrillers and reading slumps. If you’re passionate about thriller books or reading in general, then chances are you’ve experienced a reading slump a time or two in your life.
For a thriller book/horror book lover and writer, researching monsters like Bigfoot, Moth Man, the Jersey Devil and more is something I call fun. Usually I conduct my research online…like when I found the ultimate Bigfoot encounter site, Pacwest Bigfoot.
I don’t fit in anywhere. I like dark, macabre things which, if you haven’t noticed, most Christians don’t. I also have an incredibly deep faith in God…which most horror-lovers don’t. Most of the time I feel like the proverbial fish out of water. Not only here online, but in my real life too.
Sure, you love reading thriller books. But is it good for you? What if I told you that yes, reading fiction is actually as beneficial to reducing stress as meditating? What if I proved to you that reading for fun is not only good for your mental health but also your physical health?
