    As the days get shorter I’m looking for inspiration on what books I can read, as the Winter season is my time of the year to read some good books.

    Friend Request and Best Day are the ones that jump out to me, so I’ll be putting these on my wishlist. Thanks for taking the time to compile these suggestions1

  • Chris

    Another great list of books you’ve managed to publish here – I always manage to find something new to read when I visit your site! 

    The book that caught my attention the most is Friend Request, as I’m a bit of a horror addict (geek!). I’m wondering if this was the basis behind the film released last year (with the same name)?

  • Chrissie Spurgeon

    Best Day Ever, he loves her but wants to get rid of her? Beware of whom you marry.

    Thank you for these suggestions, ideal for the ME time.

    Regards, Taetske

    Oh! I am interested in reading such a collection of books, if I have the time to read them all. However, I’ll be more amused if they were filmed in a movie 🙂 I know that my wife would be dead happy if she finds out about this page 🙂 She loves reading such kind of thrilling mysterious stories more than I do. Thanks for sharing!

I usually go for fantasy books but thought that I would try something different so it is nice to get some suggestions from someone knowledgeable like yourself!

  • Pet

    I usually don’t like to read thriller books just because I have a hard time falling asleep after I have read a chapter…It is however a genre that I do enjoy and it is intriguing to read what goes on in the criminal minds out there. I will try to be brave and get a new book to read, which of these are the least scary?

    Now that’s an article I was looking for. I am always looking for the next great book that will catch my attention so articles that give me a few options is a great opportunity to check on stories. My time is very limited so it is very hard for me to look for books individually so compilations like this are true time saviors. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I already put my sights on a couple of them that you suggested!!!

    Your list of books will be in my shopping list for Christmas 🙂

      thank you for checking out my website, I havent read these just yet but they’re on my list to read! All the books ive read are under the review section of my website 🙂

  • Joe

    Hi there, I’m really glad you did a list of books on this genre of books as I think they are my favourite.

    I love the way a lot of the time they make you think one thing, then they introduce thrilling plot twits or things which you just can’t wrap your head around. They almost make me look at life differently, dramatic I know.

    There are quite a few books here which I haven’t read so I will definitely check them out for sure, thank you!

  • Nuttanee

    I saw the title Lie to Me and thought of a tv show right away but there is nothing related to it after I read your synopsis lol sounds interesting I am gonna give it a try. Uuuu and that Best day ever, sounds so good. I love the scenarios where they turn the loving husband into a killer lol you just can’t trust anybody nowadays can’t you? This reminds me of a Stephen Kings book, my husband a serial killer, gives me creeps. Will try out the books since the holiday season is here. Happy holidays!

  • Matiss

    The first sentence of the article sealed the deal for me. Right off the bat I could tell that this is something for me. So, delighted I came across the article. The books on this list got me really intrigued. Would love to read them all. Especially the “Best Day Ever” by Kaira Rouda.

    If I’m not mistaken, I’ve heard good things about the book called Friend Request. Meaning that it rocked. Well, sucked for the book characters, but was overall a great book. By any chance, isn’t it available on the big screen? I think I’ve heard people comparing the movie with the book. I might be wrong though.

    All in all such a great post, thank you for all the insights and book suggestions. I really appreciate it. Will definitely take advantage of it.

    Cheers, and have a Great One!
