  6. I'm a HUGE fan of thrillers, but I've only heard of the last two on your list! Going to check some of these out on Goodreads now - thanks for the recommendations.

    I recommended books for reluctant readers for this week's topic.

  7. Ooh you've got some amazing looking thrillers on your list Greg. I think I'm going to have to check out Friend Request. Feeling creeped out by it already!

  8. I've seen these books quite often on your posts recently. I don't read thrillers unless they have a big horror tilt in them so I haven't read any of these.

    1. Yes it fun pulling these together and so many of these I've read recently.

  9. It seems like there have been lots of thrillers lately, and so many of them seem to center on a woman who is isolated socially. I wonder what that's about.

    This is a great list! Thank you.

  11. I've not had the best luck with thrillers lately and have been taking a little break from them since reading Final Girls. However, I love the covers of some of these, especially the ones featuring water. Great topic.

    1. Thanks Barb, I did hear good things about Final Girl.

  12. I don't read many adult thrillers, but I should. Whenever I pick one up I am completely absorbed. They all sound pretty mysterious and intriguing, I'd have trouble choosing one!

    1. You're right, not many of these are YA (in fact I think I thought Girl From The sea was gonna be YA, but I guess it wasn't technically) that's a good point- hadn't even considered that! They are all mysterious though, to one degree or another. :)

  13. I'm always up for a good thriller - I loved The Woman In Cabin 10 and Emma in the Night is on my TBR. Great list!

    1. Emma in the Night was good, I hope you like it. And I liked Cabin 10 a lot too.

    1. Most of these are pretty good, a few might have been hit or miss but largely I enjoyed all of these!

  15. Oh I ove thrillers so much! There are so many here I still need to add to my TBR - thanks for the recs!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I recognise a few of these titles but I haven't read them. They all sound pretty intense though, great list!

  17. I kinda took a break from thrillers because I ended up hating all the characters and I needed something cheerier! I do occasionally pick one up if it sounds like it has some crossover with something else I like.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ha ha I know what you mean- the characters can be unlikeable in these sometimes. And sometimes you do need a happier read. :)

      Delete
  18. Great list! I love a good mystery/thriller.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm not sure this genre as a whole is for me, but man. Friend Request sounds really good!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Friend Request was kind of a trip. And I never read that many thrillers before, but this year I've read a ton!

      Delete
  20. I love a good thriller but I've read some that are not so... thrilling so thanks for these recommendations. I've seen a couple of them around - Friend Request and The Woman in Cabin 10.
    I'm visiting from the Top Ten Tuesday linkup.

  21. Love your topic choice this week!! I always love a good thriller. I really enjoyed Gone Without a Trace - a lot of good twists in that one. I have a few of these on my TBR already (I Found You and The Woman in Cabin 10), but looks like I need to add more! I just started The Girl Before, hopefully it's a good one. I don't see it on your list so I'm hoping that's just because you haven't read it. ;)

    Here's my TTT this week.

  22. Thrillers are one of my favorite reads! What She Saw has been on my TBR since I first saw it. I think all of these are going on my TBR now. :D

    Here is my TTT.

    1. What She Saw was quite good, I hope you like it!

  23. The Girl from the Sea looks interesting, even if I'm not into thrillers. I do like the whole follow a character that is regaining their mystery memories.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love Thrillers!! i'm adding all of these to my list-- especially THE GIRL FROM THE SEA. That sounds twisty!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Girl From The Sea has a great twist!

      Delete
  25. The only one of these I've read is The Girl From The Sea. I don't know what I think of the ending of that book. It seems to be a popular thing to pull that twist and I just don't know what I think of it.

    1. I know what you mean. I liked it because it worked for me in the context of that story, and some of the things that came after I was like- dang. But I can see where it wouldn't work for everyone.

      Delete
  26. Dang I forgot TTT was coming back online this week from the month-long break! Mysteries and thrillers are my favorite genre so I'll have to write up a post and post it tomorrow! I'm going through all these titles you've listed and checking out their goodreads page. I'm always looking for new ones! The Girl From the Sea caught my attention the most just because of your "killer twist" comment!

    1. I almost missed it too! Yay for mysteries! Can't wait to see your post. And I liked the twist in Girl From The Sea- I thought she sold it well. Hope you like it if you read it!

  27. *navigates over to Goodreads to add each of these that I haven't yet read to my TBR*

    Wonderful list!!

  29. My free ebooks emails used to be top heavy with a lot of Romances, but for the last few months it has been Suspense and Thrillers. I guess the tide is turning. :)

  30. I love a good thriller! I haven't read any of these but do have most of them on my tbr list. Looking forward to The Woman in Cabin 10 soon.

  32. I just picked up The Lying Game from the library and I can't wait to it! :)

  33. I've been in a thriller mood lately so this list is perfect. I love Ruth Ware and I've had The Blue on my TBR since you first mentioned it years ago. One day I'm actually going to read it! I Found You and Friend Request look amazing! Basically I want all of these!

  35. I do not pick up enough thrillers. I did, however, finally pick up The Woman in Cabin 10 this summer. There is something so haunting about Emma in the Night's book cover. I must look into it more.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm not usually a Thrillers reader but some of these look really interesting! I'll have to look into some of them! http://thelittlebookblog.blogspot.com/2017/08/top-ten-tuesday.html

  37. What She Saw looks amazing! I'm such a wuss, though. I have to be really careful or I'll freak my lives-only-with-cats-and-mice-self out and never sleep again. lol

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's so cool when people's TTT lists are full of books that I've heard of.

    The cover for Friend Request made me shudder. That's exactly the kind of thriller I'd like to read, so you may have convinced me to pick it up. :)

    Here is my TTT.

  39. I love the atmosphere in all these covers. They fit this genre perfectly

  40. I don't read enough thrillers. I had some of these on my TBR, but will definitely check out a few others. Great list!

  41. Hi! I haven't read a good thriller in a while. I'll have to check these out! Thanks :)

  42. Hey TTT - welcome back! I've been dying to read the Woman in Cabin 10 - not sure why I haven't picked it up yet, dang it! I also like the looks of The Blue and The Girl from the Sea. Obviously I like me some books that take place on the ocean:)!

    ReplyDelete
  43. ok ok ok... I'll read mysteries! :D how couldn't I??? look at your list. All the covers look so good first ALL THAT BLUE :) and the settings so mysterious, and the faces always hidden and the image blurry. I know I sound shallow, but it does work for me!!! I'm a marketing dream target :) LOL

  44. I need to read more thrillers. I`ve heard really good things about The Lying Game.

  45. One of my favorite topics! :-) I haven't read any of the books on your list, but they are all on my wishlist. I have a copy of The Woman in Cabin 10, and am hoping to read it soon.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I haven't heard of ANY of these nor the authors (that I remember). That said, OHMYWORD, some of this cover design is amazing. 'Emma' and The Blue are both amazing, and I love how the clouds overlap with the text on I Found You. Great set of book covers. :)
