Blogmas Day- 25: Top Thriller Books of 2018



Hello, hello!

Anyone who reads this blog will know my deep and abiding love for thriller/ mystery/ crime fiction! So, it goes without saying that we read a lot of books from this genre over the year and, so, obviously, we had to do a Top 10 thrillers of 2018!

Without any further ado, let's get into the list!

1. The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine: A twisty-turn-y psychological thriller about a girl who envies a rich woman and will do anything to get her life. Click on the book name for our review!

2. The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware:  A young girl learns that she has inherited a huge amount of money from a grandmother she knew nothing about. When she reaches the family mansion, she steps into a world that is not only completely different from her own but is also full of dark secrets from her past

3. Cross Her Heart: A woman and her daughter are living a quiet and secluded life in small town England. All of this changes when her daughter saves a young boy from drowning and her heroism gets them a lot of unwanted press coverage. Secrets and enemies come tumbling out of the closet.

4. The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen:  Oh this is a fantastic psychological thriller! It starts off as one thing and becomes something else entirely! Loved it! 

5. A Murder on Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey: More than a murder mystery or a thriller, what I loved about this book is its portrayal of the lives of women and Indian society in 1920s Bombay. Just read it for the atmosphere and enjoy the murder mystery as well!

6. Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber: A book that is a must-read for any podcast obsessed person! A small town murder of a college professor gets a whole lot of new attention when a popular podcast picks it apart. Love it!

7. Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell: I regret not reviewing this book on the blog because it is a truly interesting one! Laurel's daughter went missing ten years ago and now she has a new man in her life, whose daughter- Poppy- is the spitting image of Laurel's missing daughter. What connects these two girls? Just pick up this book! You won't regret it!

8. The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz: A book I thoroughly enjoyed! It is twisty and interesting and just a fantastic, classic, good old murder mystery! Read it if you haven't already!  

9. The Outsider by Stephen King: A paranormal thriller with nary a dull moment! No wonder it won the Goodreads Awards for the best thriller book! Read it!

10. Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker: Two sisters go missing three years ago. One of them returns home and is willing to go to any lengths to find her older sister. Is she telling the truth? Or did something else happen to Emma? A really gripping book!
