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.
Really excited to share my first Thriller Book Haul…well, my first online at least. If you took a look at my home library, you’d know that this isn’t the first time I’ve purchased a bunch of great new-to-me thriller books to read.
“Wait, Wilderness Survival Thrillers? Is that even a thing?” Yes it is and yes, I love them. In fact, I’m always on the lookout for new books to read in this category so if you write or have read something you love in this genre, please recommend it to me via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
Do you ever pick up a thriller novel and just know you’re going to love it? That’s what happened to me recently. I was browsing at the library looking for a copy of Jane Harper’s, The Lost Man. I’m a big fan of Ms. Harper’s, as you might remember from this post and this Thriller Book Recommendation segment.
Really looking forward to sharing two new thriller books with you guys! Before I dive in I wanted to let you know about a new group I’m creating via social media: #thrillerbooktribe. If you’re creating a new blog post, tweet, Instagram post or anything else online that you think other thriller readers would enjoy, please use the tag. I hope it will bring together like-minded readers so that we can better spread the word on great thriller novels.
Research that goes into writing thriller books such as Silence in the Woods, fascinates me. In fact, if I’m not careful, it can overtake the writing process completely. But researching the Vermont Hospital for the Insane was a remarkable and eye-opening experience. Where to begin? I started at the very beginning: a visit to the Vermont State Archives.
One of the main reasons people give for not indulging in their passion for reading great thriller books? Lack of time. It makes sense. We are busy people these days and taking the time for a fiction reading fix sometimes doesn’t happen as frequently as we’d like.
