If you are a Scorpio, you will feel right at home in the thriller genre. Books like Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” will immediately pique your interest as they are dark, grainy, and intellectually stimulating (via Yahoo!). Usually, thrillers appeal to your investigative nature, and the story of Amy Dunne’s disappearance will keep you awake at night as you try to piece together the clues.
You’ll experience that same feeling of breathless secrets unveiling and mystery as you read Daphné du Maurier’s “Rebecca” (via Things). Centered around an anonymous protagonist, “Rebecca” follows the young woman’s journey to Manderley, where she is confronted with the memory of her husband’s deceased wife. Everyone at the Estate talks fondly about Rebecca, but the protagonist’s husband refuses to discuss the topic, and the protagonist sinks deeper into her obsession with Rebecca as the story continues (via The Guardian). Does a ghost really haunt the halls of Manderley, or is it all in the protagonist’s head? There is only one way to find out!
Du Maurier is a Gothic queen, so if you like “Rebecca” you can delve into her full catalog of stories and satisfy your moody curiosity even more.
