I love to read and I have always preferred books to television. Great news is that I have teamed up with Amazon and opened a Sandra’s Closet book shop online, where you can discover now my first reading list.

My favorite genre? You might not believe it, but it is psychological thrillers. Why is that? Those captivating stories keep your adrenaline flowing and activate a part of your brain that is in general not stimulated. We release strong emotions like hate and fear that are normally repressed, thereby experiencing a catharsis. No other genre can make you feel so absorbed and involved, in my opinion. We all love to play detectives and as the story moves along, guessing on clues, the twists and turns can be so rewarding. During quarantine I read so many amazing psychological thrillers, that I would like to share with you today for the perfect summer entertainment. I added the titles if available in both languages, English and German.

Reading relaxes me significantly and helps me to sleep better.

LoL, Sandra
