Top 5 Wednesday - Buzz Words

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Top 5 Wednesday! If you want to check it out, you can go to the Goodreads group and read more about it. 

This week's topic is top 5 favourite buzz words, that is books that, when used in the synopsis, pretty much guarantee that I will be buying or reading that book! When I was compiling my list, I pretty much just went through my Goodreads to-read shelf and looked through some syopsis and whatever words jumped out at me, I picked.

Also, after compiling these, apparently I am really into the psychological thrillers and murder mysteries these days, so that is clearly reflected in my words! Don't worry, I guess I'm just in a weird place...

"psychological thriller" - Three Truths and a Lie by Brent Hartinger

I think I'm on a mission to find the best psychological thriller! Ever since starting reading them again last year, I cannot get enough!


"sinister" - Beware that Girl by Teresa Tenton

This book sounds great, and sinister is just such a great way to describe a dark, twisted character!


"tautly-told" - The Accident on the Bridge by Laura McNeal

I just really love the description of a story being "tautly-told." I feel like I will be on edge for the whole book!


"creepily atmospheric" - The Creeper Man by Dawn Kurtagich

Again, I'm on the hunt for the greatest psychological thriller!


"suicide" - The Memory of Light by Francisco X. Stork

For some very strange and possibly concerning reason, I really enjoy books with mental illness, and more specifically suicide. I just think that these books are so important to show that even if you are at the end of your rope, you can keep on going.



Well, that's it! See you next week!
