Top Ten Tuesday: Atmospheric

category: Reading Memes

about this week’s theme

The Novelry explains this concept as: “A novel feels atmospheric when the setting and the narrative are deeply involved with one another; when characters and plot are physically embedded in their surroundings, and a near-tangible mood lifts from the pages and wraps itself around the reader.” Study.com explains that, “The atmosphere is how a writer constructs their piece to convey feelings, emotions, and mood to the reader. The atmosphere in literature might be tense, fast-paced, mysterious, spooky, whimsical, or joyful and can be found in poetry, stories, novels, and series.”

I love an atmospheric read… books where the characters, the setting, and the story all weave together to bring me into the story. Here are some I love, and clearly I love thrillers!

  1. The Collective by Alison Gaylin: thriller
  2. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn: thriller
  3. Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough: thriller
  4. Lies We Told by Camilla Way: thriller
  5. The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James: thriller
  6. Darkness Peering by Alice Blanchard: thriller
  7. The End of Her by Shari Lapena: thriller
  8. The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James: thriller
  9. Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough: thriller
  10. The Grace Year by Kim Liggett: dystopian
