The top 10 #thriller and #mystery titles on my TBR

You all know how much I love thrillers and mysteries.

(even though I get burnt out once in a while)

I thought I’d share the top ten titles that I’m really looking forward to reading in the next few weeks.  Feel free to advise me on which one to read first.

Entry Island” by Peter May

The gift” by Louise Jensen

The doll funeral” by Kate Hamer

Seas of snow” by Kerensa Jennings

The darkest lies” by Barbara Copperthwaite

Persons unknown” by Susie Steiner

The missing ones” by Patricia Gibney

The long drop” by Denise Mina

Local girl missing” by Claire Douglas

The girl who was taken” by Charlie Donlea

If you have any opinion about which one(s) I should read first, let me know in the comments.

For your information, of the several thrillers I’ve already read in 2017 my five favorites so far are:

The bird tribunal” by Agnes Ravatn

I see you” by Clare Mackintosh

The beautiful dead” by Belinda Bauer

Gone without a trace” by Mary Torjussen

At the heart of the missing” by Annie Daylon

  1. Persons Unknown is great- especially if you liked Missing, Presumed.

    “The Gift” was so, so good! I bought her other book immediately after finishing it (but haven’t gotten to it yet). The concept was pretty intriguing.

      Read Louise Jensen’s first novel and loved it – so I’m pretty certain I’ll love “The Gift” as well. Thanks for your comment.

    I have read The Girl Who Was Taken and The Missing Ones. I loved both of them and recommend one of them first!


    • Fictionophile says:

      Thanks Christine. Looks like “The girl who was taken” is popular so far… I’m looking forward to “The missing ones” too. I understand the sequel,
      “The stolen girls” is already available for preorder.


  4. Emma says:

    Local Girl Missing is the only one of these I’ve read (it was good) but quite a few are on my wish list…I See You is right up there.


  5. Annie says:

    The Girl Who Was Taken!!!!!! 😀 It was amazing!


  6. THE GIFT! No hesitation! Louise Jensen is a master at psychological thrillers! And then The Darkest Lies!


    • Fictionophile says:

      Ha-ha! So many opinions. I wish I had more eyes to read with. I expect I will like “The gift” as her first book was a favorite of last year. Also, I’m eager to try Barbara Copperthwaite’s new novel. Thanks for your comment Donna.

    Excellent list; some already on my TBR and I do like Charlie Donlea.


  8. The Long Drop and The Girl Who was Taken are both on my tbr so I’ll be interested to hear what you think of them!!


  9. I really enjoyed The Long Drop by Denise Mina. As it’s a fictionalised take on real events I knew the outcome which makes it slightly different from most crime/thrillers.


    • Fictionophile says:

      So far “The long drop” and “The girl who was taken” are winning out in the comments. Thanks for ‘weighing in’ Jill.

    I also loved The Bird Tribunal! I am really keen to get my hands on The Doll Funeral, I don’t think I know the others so I will have to look some up.


  11. I need to get «Into the Water» by Paula Hawkins! I loved her other book, «The Girl on the Train» so so much.


  12. I’m reading The Girl Who Was Taken atm and it’s really good so far, fast paced and exciting. I also have Seas of Snow on my tbr – I pledged towards its publication so I’m excited to finally read it!


  13. Local Girl Missing is really good and I loved The Beautiful Dead as well! ☺


  14. Martie says:

    That is one long list. Sorry I can’t help. But have fun reading through them.


  15. Well, I’m a little biased, but I think you should read The Darkest Lies 😉
    So lovely to see my book on your list, among such brilliant titles x


  16. The Long Drop is an outstanding read, definitely one of my favourites of the year so far. Lots on this list I have my eye on too!!
