Three Thrillers To Binge
I’ve been reading a steady diet of fantasy or romance for several weeks. I decided to break up the pattern with a thriller and now I’m on a thriller binge. What can I say? I’m a mood reader to the extreme.
First up, The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware. This one got me from page one. It’s starts with a super creepy first person perspective of a break-in. I was instantly jumpy and suspicious of everything else that happened in the story. And once the story took off, it had some really nice Agatha Christie vibes, in my opinion. I couldn’t put it down! Sometimes books in this genre start slow, but not this one. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a thriller that’s grips you from the start.
Riding the high from The Woman in Cabin 10, I went straight into The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn. I’ve had this one on my TBR list for a while because I know it’s being made into a movie. While I didn’t read The Woman in the Window as fast as my previous book, I still found myself really intrigued by the story. I wouldn’t say it gave me and creepy feelings, but it was a solid thriller. And the main character’s love of classic thriller films was a fun element that I enjoyed. This one has maximum suspense, y’all! So be prepared.
Most recently, I flew through The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell. This one was by far the weirdest of the three. Most of it is set in a ultra-creepy house, which gives it a very gothic aura. The characters are totally dysfunctional, and at times the only reason I didn’t stop reading was because I genuinely just wanted to figure out what was going on. It wasn’t my favorite, and it definitely wasn’t the typical style of thriller that I enjoy. But it was certainly memorable.
