Hi, lovelies! Let’s talk about the perfect genre for Spooktober: mystery/thrillers. I love me a good thriller as much as the next person, especially this time of year. So, today I’m going to share some of my favorites with you all. I won’t say too much about them, but if they’re on this list I think you should read them.
Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl
I read this one on Halloween last year and it was the perfect book to read. It’s a psychological thriller and things get…weird.
The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer
The twists and turns in this one were so good that I even got my husband to read it, which says a lot.
The Arsonist by Stephanie Oakes
This is sort of mystery/thriller combined with historical fiction. It was fast-paced and beyond intriguing.
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus
I loved her first mystery, but this one was even better. Characters to love and a few different mysteries to keep things interesting.
Broken Things by Lauren Oliver
I loved this book. I totally did not see the end of it coming. I loved the characters and the atmosphere. It’s the perfect book for this time of year.
An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
I’m sure this is one that everyone has heard of by now. I read this for book club and it was a wild ride.
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
I love this series and I will never stop shouting about it from the rooftops. It has all of the things I love, boarding school, complex characters, the perfect fall read.
Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson
This story told through flashbacks, is full of suspense and build up. I just wanted to know what the hell happened to Monday.
Sadie by Courtney Summers
Listen to the audiobook for this one, you won’t regret it. Two mysteries in one, as we follow Sadie on her journey.
The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich
A list of mysteries must always include the Stephanie Plum books. I love these fun mysteries. Plum Spooky would be the perfect one for October.
Under Currents by Nora Roberts
This is the newest of her novels. It did not disappoint. Her books never do. You could pick any of her mysteries and they would be perfect for this month.
Any of these books would be great choices for your Spooktober TBR list this month. Let me know what mystery/thrillers that I don’t have on the list that I should make sure to read this season!
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
