There's something about curling up on the couch in the winter with a warm blanket, hot drink and a good book. Here are 4 thrillers that you won't be able to put down!
1. The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter - This book blew me away. Such incredible detail, combined with a compelling storyline and fantastic writing made this one of my favorite books I've read in quite a while. Karin Slaughter has become one of my new favorite authors and I can't wait to read more from her! (Just a warning - her writing is very graphic and there are a few triggers in this book including rape and school shooting.)
2. The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine - I almost didn't even read this book, which is crazy because it ended up making my list of favorite thrillers. I originally picked it up because it was part of Reese Witherspoon's book club, and sounded really good. When I first started it, I was just so annoyed by the characters that I wanted to stop reading. What I realized is that such a strong reaction probably means it's going to be a great book. Man, was I right. Even though I didn't love the characters, I loved the story that they were a part of. By the middle of the book, I could not put it down!
3. All The Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood - I wouldn't technically call this book a thriller, but it's definitely got dark moments and will stick in your mind long after reading it. This book kept me up at night long after my kids went to bed because I just couldn't put it down. The subject matter is very controversial, and everyone will have their own opinions of it. I went through a variety of emotions but ultimately ended up loving this book so much. I think the title captures the idea of the book perfectly.
4. Lie to Me by JT Ellison - This was the first thriller I read in the fall, and it started my thriller reading streak. This book centers around a seemingly perfect couple until the wife mysteriously disappears. The first half of the book is told from the perspective of the husband, Ethan, and the second half is told by his wife, Sutton. We find out early on that they are far from perfect and it becomes hard to know who to trust throughout the entire story.
