Time for the next category in the RWC 2017 Reading Challenge.

Category #20: A thriller

This one, I’ll admit, is a bit of a gimme for me. The number of thrillers I read in a year far blows away any other genre. I love the suspense, the tension, the mystery…  And what could be more perfect for October? (Or, as I call it, Poetober.)

Below are a few books on my TBR for this category:

Six Wakes (Mur Lafferty)

I’ve heard such great things about this book. It’s a closed-room murder mystery set in space. I’m not a huge lover of sci-fi but I’m a definite fan of Lafferty and her podcasts. This book seemed like a great opportunity to give her writing a try.

Berlin Syndrome (Melanie Joosten)

We watched the movie based on this book a few months ago. Some of the reviews I read said the book was quite different so I thought I’d check it out. It’s about a tourist abducted by a one-night stand.

With Malice (Eileen Cook)

This book is advertised as appealing to fans of “Girl on the Train” and “We Were Liars.” Without giving away anything about either of those books, I enjoyed them enough that I wanted to read this one. It’s about a girl who wakes up in a hospital and discovers she’s been involved in a fatal accident.

I See You (Clare Mackintosh)

I enjoyed the author’s prior book, “I Let You Go,” so I have high expectations for this release. It’s about a woman who becomes paranoid in her day-to-day life when her photo appears in a strange classified ad.

What will you read to complete this category? Leave a comment below with your thoughts about these or any I may have missed.
