6 books to read if you love Thrillers!
If you loved watching HBO’s Big Little Lies and are looking for more twisty psychological thrillers that pack plenty of surprises, I’ve got a list of six books you should read!
In addition to these six, I definitely recommend you also pick up Liane Moriarty’s The Husband’s Secret and What Alice Forgot—those are my two other faves she wrote. Also be sure to keep your eyes open for the best upcoming books in the mystery genre!
I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh
On a rainy afternoon, a mother’s life is shattered as her son slips from her grip and runs into the street…
This book will shock the hell out of you halfway through with a twist that changes everything you’ve read. Brilliantly plotted, suspenseful and emotional, this story will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The story follows a woman haunted by a tragic hit-and-run accident, as well as the investigators who try to get to the bottom of what happened the day a little boy lost his life.
The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
A twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . .
Similar to Big Little Lies, the twists keep coming the more you learn about each character in the book. The story opens with two couples (neighbors) at a dinner party. One of the couples leaves their baby home, safe in her crib, after all they are only going next door and they’re checking on her every half hour. But as the night unravels and tensions rise, the baby goes missing. Trust me when I say you won’t be able to put this book down with themes of deception and infidelity.
My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry
Proving your past can come back to haunt you, this provocative and disturbing domestic thriller will take you on a ride. Full of shocking twists and turns, My Husband’s Wife draws you in with a bevy of flawed, unreliable characters and an ever-shifting narrative that only promises more secrets. The novel centers around a couple whose marriage frays when the wife takes a criminal case she becomes too close to, and once a young Italian neighbor girl begins to frequent their home.
The story tangles together in ways unforeseen as years pass. You can’t help but flip page after page to see what happens next in this twisted tale of love, marriage and murder.
