For anyone that doesn’t know, my favourite genre to read is a Thriller and all the sub-genres of Thriller. Crime Thriller, Psychological Thriller, Supernatural Thriller – if it has Thriller in the title then I am all for it. It’s funny how your taste in books changes as you grow isn’t it? A good few years ago I absolutely loved Chick-Lit novels but that’s not a genre I tend to go for anymore just because my tastes have changed as I’ve grown. And that’s totally okay. So anyway, Thriller’s are my go-to genre now. I absolutely love the suspense, the build up, the secrets, the confusion and usually the epic twists at the end. Of course not all Thrillers tick all the boxes and I know not everyone likes or reads full-length book reviews, which is totally okay, so here’s a quick run down of 7 books you need to read if, like me, you love a good Thriller.
Her Name Was Rose by Claire Allan
Her Name Was Rose was a bloody good book. Bloody good. It was so damn gripping and the ultimate page-turner. One of those books that really leaves you wondering who to trust and without a doubt isn’t the person you expect!

Last Seen Alive by Claire Douglas
This is probably in my top 3 Thrillers I’ve ever read – Last Seen Alive was just soooo rich and complex and full of lies and secrets and my gosh. I can’t even say anything because I don’t wanna give anything away. Phenomenal.

The Sisters by Claire Douglas
Can you see a bit of a trend here? I read The Sisters first (before Last Seen Alive) and I couldn’t put it down. I knew I had found a gem of an author so was eager for Claire’s next release. The Sisters had me thinking for days!

My Sister by Michelle Adams
See another trend? I absolutely love the ‘sisters’ trend in Thrillers at the moment, which is funny cos I usually get bored of trends but I’ve read so many amazing variations of this one. My Sister by Michelle Adams included!

The Honeymoon by Tina Seskis
Probably one of the few Thrillers that genuinely confused and shocked me. I rarely gasp at anything; books, movies, whatever. But The Honeymoon literally made me gasp out loud and to me, that signifies a brilliant book!

The Chalk Man by C.J Tudor
Undoubtedly one of the most talked about Thrillers at the moment, The Chalk Man is well worth all the hype it’s getting. An outstanding debut which is very Stranger Things-esque and just generally an outstanding book.

Bird Box by Josh Malerman
At the time of writing, this is my most recently read Thriller and I finished this in about 2.5 days. A truly unusual story-line; scary (like literally, scary), claustrophobic and completely immersive. Also being made into a Netflix movie this December!
