so, turns out this quotation is from one of my favorite books, House of Leaves, but I didn’t recognize it til I Googled it. in my defense, that book has a lot of words in it.

    Where to Go After Gone Girl

    Can’t get enough of that queasy feeling you got after finishing Gone Girl? Have you been asking yourself, what else can I read that will make me equally uncomfortable?

    Given that we’ve been answering this question literally every day for the past two years, we put our heads together and came up with a list. Here’s an unlucky thirteen novels, by female authors, that push some of the same buttons.

    Read More

    Tana French, Tana French, read you some Tana French. 

    and Natsuo Kirino! 

    and read Gillian Flynn’s other novels because they are like poison candy and are equally dark & twisty but maybe even girlier than Gone Girl (since, you know, they are totally from women’s POVs unlike GG and I always have a lot of feelings about the gender politics of what “breaks through” or “crosses over” in popular fiction, esp. crime/mystery/thriller…).
