I am just a girl who loves reading and talking about books
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, bloggers get a topic which entails giving a list of ten things based on the topic.
Today’s instructions were as follows: September 13: Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre (I know, I know. Picking all time faves. I’m MEAN. But I like knowing people’s definitive faves). Can also break it down into sub-genre if that helps?
I read almost all book genres apart from Sci-Fi and Fantasy which I am yet to try out. My favorite genre is psychological thrillers but I couldn’t list my all time favorite books so I settled on listing the best books in this genre that I have read in 2016. Anyway, in no particular order, here are my 2016 top 10 psychological thrillers:
I recommend The Sister by Louise Jensen to all fans of psychological thrillers. It’s a story about secrets, deception and lost friendships all masterfully told with suspense that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Seriously, if you like psychological thrillers then you should go get this book.
The Beauty of the End by Debbie Howells- I enjoyed reading this book and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. If you fancy a good love story with the right amount of twists, mystery and tragedy then this one is for you.
After She Fell by Mary Jane Riley is the kind of book that will keep you guessing up to the last page.
The Chosen Child by Linda Huber is a book about murder, secrets, lust, deception and families torn apart. It is that kind of book that will have you turning the pages frantically as you search for answers.
The Girl from the Sea is one of the best psychological thrillers that I have ever read this year. I have never read an amnesiac thriller before so I found the angle to pretty intriguing. It is the kind of story that will take you on a roller-coaster ride. It will get you making the wrong guesses before throwing huge twists at you. It is short and captivating and I bet it will make a great read for everyone who enjoys these kinds of books.
After Anna by Alex Lake was quite a fascinating read. I devoured the book in just a day and couldn’t put it down until I was done. I just had to get all the answers! The pacing is wonderful with so much happening in each chapter hence I was at the edge of my seat until the last page.
The Girl in the Ice and The Night Stalker by Robert Bryndza- If you enjoy reading thrillers/mystery then you definitely need to read Robert Bryndza books. You can start with The Girl in the Ice just so that you can get familiar with the characters. However, you can still enjoy reading The Night Stalker as a standalone. Brilliant, enjoyable and thrilling page turners.
One of the darkest books that I have ever read.This story is very fast paced that it reminded me of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. It also reminded me of the movie American Psychopath.
Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris is the kind of story that will make you look around and think twice about the people around you. You will look at the smiling faces and truly wonder about what happens behind the closed doors and if it matches what is portrayed outside.I absolutely loved this book.
Okay, I guess those are my top 14 psychological thrillers of 2016, sorry couldn’t do just 10.Click on the titles to read my review for each book. Have you read any of these books?
