5 Page-Turning Thrillers to Read

What is the better way to spend the upcoming rainy weekend with an exciting book and a cup of coffee or tea? There is no better way, at least for me :). So if you are facing a rainy weekend as well as me here in London – get reading – I’ve created this post to give you an inspiration what to read. I guarantee you that you won’t put these thrillers down.

I know we all love and have read Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, but I dare to say that some of my choices are as good as those two best- sellers.

1.In a Dark, Dark Wood – Ruth Ware

I finished this book in a single day. I wasn’t able to put it down.  For me as reader, I am not a fan of many “description” parts of book, and this one doesn’t have many of that. This one has action, fear, tension – simply everything you need!

Nora, who makes a living by writing thriller books, hasn’t seen her friend Clare for ten years. She has cut from her old life and created a new one. Until, an invitation to Clare’s hen party arrives. A weekend in a cottage far away in a dark wood. It is the ideal opportunity to reconnect with your old friends.  Is it?

2. The woman in cabin 10 – Ruth Ware

The newest book from Ruth. I must say that is as good as the previous one. I have bought it because I was so in love with her first book, that I simply had to have this one.

Travel journalist Lo Blacklock is planning to go on a luxury boutique cruise ship. When she is on the ship the things don’t go as planned. She is woken up by screams and see a body thrown overboard from the next cabin. She witnessed a murder, but nobody is missing?

3. Dangerous girls – Abigail Haas

My sis recommended me this book. I read it a long time ago but still it is one of my favourite. As usual I’ve read it in one breath. This one is really a page-turner!

It was supposed to be a normal spring break in Aruba for Anna. But her best friend is found murdered, and nobody know what happened. Trapper in a country not her own, Anna must fight for her freedom and prove her innocence.

4. Big Little Lies – Liane Moriarty

This is my second book that I have read from Moriarty. And I loved it. If you have HBO or Sky Atlantic you can watch a Big Little Lies TV Show starring Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.

Single mum Jane has just moved to town with her little son, who is accused, on the first day of the school, of strangling a little girl. But all of the other families living in the town has their own secrets, which will be revealed. 

5. I let you go – Clare Mackintosh

Psychological thriller, which I am currently reading and it belongs to my all time favourite. This one is the one I’ll be spending my weekend with!

The story is about Jenna Gray and her past, which is coming back to her. 


Well, I hope I have given you a few tips and you’ll have a great weekend!
