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.
