Cold-Weather Thrillers

Posted on: November 1, 2019

With Fall in full swing I’ve put together a list books I plan on reading this season.  My list reading list for Fall/Winter is usually much longer than my list for Spring/Summer since I tend to spend more time indoors curled up with a chunky blanket and a hot cup of pumpkin spice latte, a book in hand seems like the perfect companion.  I’ve mentioned a few books below that are on my list.  I’m not sure what it is about this time of year, but I always love a good thriller/mystery during these months.  During the summer I tend to lean more towards genres such as comedy, romance and drama.  Well without further ado, here is my Fall/Winter reading list.

  1. The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda.  A suspenseful novel about a town in Maine dealing with the suspicious death of a frequent summer visitor.
  2. The Other Woman by Sandie Jones.  A chilling psychological thriller about a man, his girlfriend and the mother who will not let him go.  Sounds like a horror version of the movie ‘Mother-in-Law’.
  3. The Lying Game by Ruth Ware.  This is one is near the top of my list.  Four high school friends who went their separate ways after a tragedy, come together years later and realize the consequences of their past lies as they uncover the truth about what happened years ago.
  4. The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware.  What seemed like the perfect job as a nanny for Rowan turns in to a complete nightmare.  With a child dead and Rowan on trial for a crime she didn’t commit, she struggles to piece together what actually happened and who the real murderer is.
  5. The Nanny by Gilly MacMillan.  When her beloved nanny leaves without a trace, Jocelyn is left devasted.  When an unexpected visitor knocks on her door, Jocelyn is desperate to piece together what happened years ago and wonders if she can trust her own mother.
  6. Someone We Knew by Shari Lapena.  A teenager has been breaking into houses in the neighbourhood and uncovering their darkest secrets.  When a women down the street is murdered the tension reaches the breaking point.  How far are people willing to go to ensure that their secrets stay hidden?

I’ll be making frequent trips to Coles as I work my way through these interesting reads.  If you haven’t already checked out their bookmark selection then I suggest you pick up a pack of their magnetic bookmarks.  The magnets will hold on to your page so you won’t have to worry about it slipping out.  Most come in sets of three so its great when you want to switch things up a bit.

Happy Reading!
