If you want to be disturbed, Delicate Monsters, or anything else by Stephanie Khuen. Seriously. She will mess you up. Her books (including Charm and Strange and Complicit) play with the lines between fantasy and madness, explore trauma and mental illness, are JAM-PACKED full of twists and she doesn't shy away from the darkest parts of human nature.
