IGNORE YOUR FAMILY THIS MARCH BREAK
What to read while lying on the beach or just riding the couch
FIND YOU IN THE DARK by Nathan Ripley
In this chilling debut thriller in the vein of Dexter and The Talented Mr. Ripley, a family man obsessed with digging up the undiscovered remains of serial killer victims catches the attention of a murderer prowling the streets of Seattle. Fun fact: Nathan Ripley is actually the pen name of Naben Ruthnum, author of TYPE Books' favourite Curry: Eating, Reading, and Race.
THE PERFECT NANNY by Leila Slimani
Beginning with, "the baby is dead," is a brave place to start for a debut novelist. Those not scared off will be rewarded with a compulsive, riveting, bravely observed exploration of power, class, race, domesticity, motherhood, and madness.
MEDITATION FOR FIDGETY SKEPTICS by Dan Harris
Highly recommended by staffer Kalpna Patel— who isn't particularly fidgety, but did start reading his book with a high degree of scepticism—this is for those too busy to meditate, who can't turn off their brains, and who are curious about mindfulness but more comfortable in the gym. We see you.
THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW by A.J. Finn
A tribute to both film noir and mysteries, Finn's novel is a smart, sophisticated joyride of psychological suspense that mixes equal parts Hitchcock and Gillian Flynn.
