Mystery/Thriller Recommendations

Post by dcruzsammy »

Can anyone recommend me some books with mystery/thriller themes? I was browsing through book genres, and went past this particular one and remembered that the last time I read a book in this genre was from 6 years ago, Smash Cut I believe was the title, and I am in need to get back on this track.

"You" by Caroline Kepnes is about a stalker/serial killer.

Hi. I would very much like to recommend for you to read "The Silent Patient" by Alex Michaelides. It was the first book that got me back to reading last year. I literally did not put the book down once I started reading it. It was about a psychotherapist obsessing over a particular case wherein a woman shot her husband in the face and remained silent after committing the crime. Hands down, one of the best books that I have read. It got me second-guessing about what really happened. I don't know if it's just me, but I did not see the end coming.

I am taking your words for this one. I'm currently looking it up and there's a mix of reactions on this one. Thank you for your recommendation!

Is this the novel where the series of the same name was adapted? I haven't watched that yet so I hope it'll be a good idea to read it first before I watch the series.

It is. "you" also has a sequel called "the hidden bodies" you might try as well. 😊
