October 2019 TBR | Reading the Most-Hyped Thrillers of the Year

October is almost here! Bring on the spooky décor, costume parties, and THRILLERS 😊 I’ve had a great start to fall so far and am super excited for Halloween and the holiday season coming up. In October, I definitely will be getting my thriller fix when it comes to reading, as my plan is to read some of the most-hyped thrillers that have come out this year!

In preparation for this TBR, I went onto Goodreads and made an Excel list of all of the thrillers I can think of with their respective ratings and number of ratings. Because I want to read the most-hyped books, I ordered them in order of NUMBER of ratings so that I know these have been the most-read out of all thrillers I could find or think of.

Most of these books I am planning on checking out from my library or listening to on Scribd – because of that, I’m not 100% sure which books I’ll have access to at any given time during the month, so my goal is to read 7 of the 10 listed below.

And lastly before getting into it, because these are all thriller/mystery books, I want to go into reading them without much knowledge of the plot so that I can be fully surprised by all of the twists and turns. Because of that, I don’t have any sort of synopsis to share for any of them! All I know is that lots of people have read and enjoyed them 😊

    • Thanks!! I’m really hoping I love his latest, it’s been so hyped I’m a little concerned about it not living up. And hey, even if Eclipse isn’t TECHNICALLY a thriller I definitely think it fits in as a great fall/wintery read 🙂

  1. Oh this is exciting! Just found your blog and followed you! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on these. I really loved Turn of the Key – Ruth Ware doesn’t always work for me but she really shined here. Verity was just a complete mind f*ck* I still think about that ending though – sneaky sneaky LOL

    Anonymous Girl was really interesting and I loved it until the end. Then it went a little predictable for me, but still liked it for a read.
