Unless you don't come 'round these parts often, you'll know that I mostly talk about YA books here. I've been reading more crime and thriller books for blog tours (specifically 'The Dry' by Jane Harper and 'Burned and Broken' by Mark Hardie, the post for which will be going up later today) and it's made me want to read more this year.
These thrillers are all ones that I've been looking at reading for a while, but haven't had time to just yet.
10) 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Steig Larsson
Looking back, it seems that this book was responsible for catapulting thrillers to the forefront of public awareness. I bought the entire series years ago, but because they're so chunky I haven't read them just yet. It seems necessary to at least give this series a go.
9) 'The Ex' by Alafair Burke
8) 'The Girl in 6E' by A.R. Torre
7) 'Too Close For Comfort' by Eleanor Moran
6) 'Pretty Is' by Maggie Mitchell
5) 'Disclaimer' by Renee Knight
I was lucky enough to find a signed copy of 'Disclaimer' in a charity shop, and I STILL haven't read it! A woman has a book on her bedside table, and while reading it she realises it's the story of a dark time in her life. Damn.
4) 'Her Every Fear' by Peter Swanson
3) 'Good Me, Bad Me' by Ali Land
2) 'The Girl on the Train' by Paula Hawkins
I bought this the day it came out. The hype surrounding it was unreal, the reservation list on all of the copies in the library was over twenty people deep, and I wanted to get my hands on it instantly. Safe to say, I didn't read it. I still haven't read it. But one day, I will.
I hope you enjoyed the topic I chose to write about for freebie week! What did you talk about on your Top Ten Tuesday list?
