Ya’ll know I love a good book. Like, legit. My favorite way to spend a free hour is wandering aimlessly around a bookstore. They have to be actual books, too. No reading via Kindle or Nook, I want to be able to hold the book and feel the pages as I turn them. We all have our thing and I guess that’s mine!
And while I’m definitely not a genre snob – and will pretty much read anything except horror, I’ve definitely been going through a psychological thriller/suspense phase the last year.
Some of these you may have seen me mention in past blogs, but if they passed the read-test in my book, then they’re definitely worth mentioning again. Without further ado, here are my top 15 picks for psychological thrillers that you should add to your summer reading list!
- No Exit by Taylor Adams
- The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
