I am so, so sick of everything in my Amazon recommendations list being a “gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist” or “the most heartbreaking thing you’ll read this year”. Apart from anything else, the twists are never that shocking, and my heart remains unmoved. I don’t want each book I read to be the same as the last three. I like variety, the only criteria I have is that it needs to be neither vacuous nor turgid and worthy. I thought searching under “literary fiction” would work, but that’s started churning out just as much crap as all the other categories. Has anyone found a reliable way of getting good recommendations?
