favorite thrillers of the summer

Thrillers used to be my favourite genre, I devoured them when I was younger, but in the last few years, I can't remember reading much of that genre. This summer I've read one and then another and kind of fell back in love with the genre.

It's true that the books kind follow the format, but the ones that I love the most, are the kind that keeps you on the edge of your seat not knowing about the twist till the last few chapters.

Not sure what is about 'em, but they are very addicting. 

Here are some of the three I've read this summer, that I absolutely fell in love with.

I've read it as a part of the read-along. I've enjoyed doing those very much. Reading a book is a very solitary thing, but knowing that there are so many people reading the same book at the same time, it's kind of cool. :) And it's always awesome to try new things, to get out of my comfort zone and discover something that would otherwise slip past me.

Mary is a crime writer. In January she is collecting Christmas gifts to give to charity when she opens a diary she got, presumably from a publisher. Only there is something written in it. On the first of the month, on the 1st of January is written Murder Lisa Oxford, on the 1st of February Murder Jane, Birmingham, on the 1st of March Murder David Cardiff and on the 1st of April Murder Mary, Cheltenham. It feels like a joke, but Lisa was murdered on the 1st of January, in Oxford. The diary starts a manhunt for the next victim before the first of the month rolls up, but with so little to go on, it's almost impossible.

It's so so good, I was sure I knew who it was, but I couldn't be more wrong. There is a mystery, there is action and some pretty huge plot twists.

Highly recommend it!

River of Ashes by Alexandra Weis & Lucas Astor

Beau comes from a respected family. He is charming and everyone seems to like him and wants to be his friend. Except for Leslie. He is dating her twin sister, but Leslie can't shake the feeling that there is something not right about him.

Beau is pure evil packed in a pretty package. His family is keeping a secret and he is well versed in hiding who he really is. On the river bank, there is a party each Friday, there is where he can be himself. He is getting bolder and bodies are starting to resurface.

The best part about the book is that there is a part of it written from Beau's perspective. It is very interesting to get into his head and to see how he operates, to see how he thinks about the horrors he does.

The Trial by S. R. Masters

Elle is working hard at her job, trying to save for a holiday in secret, while also supporting her horrible mother. One day the mother goes too far, scamming her out of her holiday money. Elle gets drunk and uses her mother's computer. The ad pops up for a medical trial, with a huge paycheck on a fancy island and Elle fills it out as her mother would. Surprisingly she gets picked.

She means to take it as an all-inclusive vacation, but things start to get weird on she gets there. There is a lot of secrecy, people complaining of headaches and acting strange.

The first half is brilliant, but the second half is a bit duller until it comes all together in the end. 

Do you read thrillers?

happy reading,
