I actually feel a bit vulnerable sharing my reading list. Like do I really want everyone to know that I enjoy reading psycho-thriller novels? Well I guess you know now.
Some of my favorite authors in this genre are Ruth Ware, B.A. Paris, Rachel Hawkins, and Lisa Jewel. There are a few others including Alex Michaelides, The Maidens, and Silent Patient, where the jury is still out.
I do find some of the books fairly predictable, especially when I have read every book by the author, but I still find them to be enjoyable as I read towards whatever twist there is in the end. I have always been a fan of mysteries and these types of books satisfy some of that intersest.
It is hard to talk about enjoying these types of books because the topics are generally pretty dark, but the twists and turns of the story keep the reader engaged. Being that these books are often on the top of the bestseller lists, I know I am not alone.
Here are some of my favorites, please don’t judge me I do not advocate for any type of violence.
The Death of Mrs. Westaway, Ruth Ware
The Invisible Girl, Lisa Jewell
The Therapist, B.A. Paris
The Wife Upstairs, Rachel Hawkins
Behind Closed Doors, B.A. Paris- this one was particularly chilling and horrifying all at once.
My next post will be about a lighter topic- Romance Novels.
