One of my favorite things to do is to get totally lost in a great book. I love podcasts and good TV shows, but if I could only have one of those things for the rest of time, I would choose a good book, no question. Based on my TV/podcast preferences, it should be no surprise that I usually opt for thriller/suspense novels. I typically read a few chapters before I go to sleep (reading puts me to sleep!), and if the book is really good, I’ll pick it up on a Saturday afternoon. I’ve recently read some great ones, so I thought I would share, in case you’re in the market!
Into The Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes
I read this on our honeymoon and it was so good. A total page-turner! One of my favorites out of this list, for sure.
The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
This was the first one that I read when I got back into reading a lot several months ago. It was so intriguing with its twists and turns – I didn’t want it to end!
In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
Clearly, I’m a fan of this author! Another good one that kept me on my toes the entire time.
The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
This one took a little while for me to get into, but ended up being a good one!
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
Admittedly, this one was a little outside my normal style with the sci-fi angle, but it was thrilling. Plus, it was set in Chicago (part of the time), which was fun to read about!
A Stranger In The House by Shari Lapena
Another twisty, a little bit dark, thriller, where you’re not quite sure what is going to happen.
The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
Admittedly, the first half of this was pretty slow to me. I fought my way through it, wanting to give up a few times, because it had good reviews. I’m glad I stuck with it because it ended up being interesting and entertaining.
Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris
I read this in three days while we were in Mexico in January. It was incredibly good and easy to read. It’s the only book that, when I got to the last few pages, I got physical chills and teared up with how it ended!
The Woman In The Window by A.J. Finn
I just finished this one and, oh my goodness. It was the first of these books that actually spooked me a little bit, but in a good way. There’s a twist that comes that caused me to want to skip over a couple of pages because I was creeped out!
I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll
I’m currently reading this one and am enjoying it! Similar to the others, it has its twists and turns and is told from the perspective of several different people.
