I love to read, you know that. A good novel is the best way to escape reality but sometimes I like to escape into a reality that is full of psychos, murder and brilliant women. I always see people asking for recommendations (I am always asking for recommendations) so I figured I would compile a list of “yes, you should read” & “nah, don’t waste your time”. This post is dedicated to my favorite and my not so favorite suspense novels.
All The Missing Girls x Megan Miranda
This was the first novel of hers I ever read and I have been hooked ever since. The story is told backwards which I love. It’s a format I’ve never read before and it intrigued me. The story line is just enough suspense to leave you satisfied but real enough to make it seem plausible. I will recommend this book EVERY time.
My Husband’s Wife x Jane Corry
The cover is the best part of this book, in my opinion. It has enough suspense to keep you interested but by the time you’ve reached the last page you’ll be mad you wasted your time. It isn’t believable and isn’t psycho enough to make you happy.
The Marriage Lie x Kimberly Belle
I’ve dotted on this book before and I will continue to do so. What I loved about this book is it started out with a happy couple and it ended with a woman being a badass, because being a badass is better than a happy couple. This book kept me guessing and I was never sure what was going to happen next. It’s one of those books you can read again and you’ll still feel the same way.
Liar x K. L. Slater
Just don’t waste your time…unless you just want to. This book has a good twist….at the very end and the twist doesn’t make up for the rest of the book. You’ll turn the last page and up just feeling sorry for the male character and feeling bad about being a woman. (okay, it might not be that dramatic but then again it might be)
In a Dark, Dark Wood x Ruth Ware
I love Ruth Ware. Most people do but when you say her name most people think about The Woman in Cabin 10 (which was great) but her first novel is my favorite. I seriously read it in one sitting on a Sunday (nap days) that’s how good it is. It’s got enough spook to make you not want to go to a cabin in the woods and enough twist to keep you wondering. I 10/10 recommend
Dead Girl Running x Christine Dodd
This may be my least favorite suspense novel I have ever paid money for. It pains me to know that there will be a sequel. Nothing about the book made sense, not the plot, not the characters, not the writing style. It was just BAD… honestly no one in their right mind would call their cousin “cousin name” example: Thanks cousin Caitlin for cooking dinner — just NO. If you take anything away from anything I ever type please let it be this: don’t waste your money.
Soooo there’s just a quick list of do reads and don’t reads, I will soon have some book to movie post..so stay tuned and stay nerdy, my pals.
