October has arrived! And you know what that means… Halloween is right around the corner!
Because of all the glorious ness that is upon us, I’ve been inspired to share my Top 3 Thriller Books (So Far). Enjoy!
Haunted: A Novel
by Chuck Palahniuk
This was my first experience reading Palahniuk, and I was NOT disappointed! Palahniuk is a brilliant author, and well versed in many subjects. I cannot wait to read more of his work.
Haunted includes short stories from the different characters who are “trapped” inside a writer’s retreat.
Each story grew more and more grotesque. If you’re looking for something that will twist your stomach, and shift your view of reality, read this.
by Riley Sager
Absolutely amazing! I was suspicious of every single character. Even the main character, Quincy!
Final Girls follows Quinn, a single survivor from a horrific massacre that occured at Pine Cottage. She unwillingly becomes part of a “Final Girls” club, which includes other survivors of their own terrifying bloodbath experiences.
Since that terrible night, Quinn has resorted to a simple life, hidden from the world. It’s only after the suicide of the first Final Girl, and an abrupt reunion with another Final Girl, that Quinn has to relive the horror that took place at Pine Cottage.
Incredible, and perfectly written. Final Girls had me plowing through, desperate to find the truth.
The Woman in the Window
by A. J. Finn
I didn’t bother putting this one down. I have a tendency to read stories about women who drink themselves into oblivion, and I can honestly say that this was one of my favorites!
It starts off interestingly enough: An agoraphobe, Anna, watches the lives of her neighbors though her window. Seems creepy, so I already like where this is heading.
She witnesses a murder at her neighbor’s home, and after a frantic 911 call, her reality quickly spirals. The police don’t believe her story; her neighbors think she’s mad; and she truly can’t trust anyone.
There are several twists, and harsh revelations. To be honest, most of my reading was done with my jaw on the floor.
