Top 5 Saturday: Psychological Thrillers

Top 5 Saturday: Psychological Thrillers

I know I’m super duper late with this – so sorry guys! – but I’m posting it today so I can make sure I’m caught up later this week. Thank you again so much Mandy @ Devouring Books for bringing this back, and for tagging me on Twitter to do this one. I love having a post to work on every day of the week, and I love coming up with lists.

Rules!

I feel like I’m not much of a psychological thriller person, but there have been some that I liked. But like I’ve said before, I think that expanding my genres will help me find some more books that I may end up enjoying. So let’s see what I add on this list.


This has been on my TBR list for like a month or more, and I swear I’m going to read it before the year is out! I super swear it.


One of my long time friends actually recommended this one, so I’ll have to check it out. Not just because it’s a Reese Witherspoon book club choice. That’s definitely not the reason.


I’m not a CoHort (yet?) but this is one that I’ve been wanting to read. I also heard that this was pretty damn creepy, so hopefully I can get through it.


I read The Wife Between Us, and I listened to a podcast about this one (spoilers in it, so beware) and I was really intrigued by what they had to say about it.


I was really into Lock Every Door when I got chosen for the blog tour with Fantastic Flying Book Club, and I keep hearing that I should read Sager’s previous books as well. I figured I’d read this one.

This one was actually kind of hard to do! It really makes me realize that I don’t want to get into the psychological thriller genre as much, or that there’s so many that I’ve seen before but haven’t really wanted to read yet. I also think there aren’t any YA psychological thrillers, although I may be wrong. Do you have any that I should start with?

Don’t feel pressured to do these if you don’t want to! I just want to make sure I spread the word on this weekly meme, and maybe get some more people to play along. Who knows? You may know someone who wants to try it.

  1. Thanks for joining!! I really wanted an ARC copy of Whisper Network, but didn’t wind up getting one. I LOVED An Anonymous Girl, I thought it was really well done. Also, Final Girls is the only unread Riley Sager novel that I have left and I really want to read it as well. Hopefully some of the upcoming topics will be easier for you to find 5 books for– there are a few that I’m really excited for! If you have any topics that you’d really like to have on Top 5 Saturday I am totally open to recommendations!

    1. Of course! Thanks so much for tagging me ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sorry I was super late though! I hope to listen to the audiobook of The Whisper Network honestly. I actually kind of wish that publishers could send audiobook ARCs because I could get through those way easier than on my phone. I hope you get to read it soon though!

      Oh that’s good! I hope I enjoy An Anonymous Girl. I’m glad to hear that you loved it, so I’m a little bit more excited to read it now ๐Ÿ™‚ Probably listen, but you know what I mean.

      I’ll definitely think about some suggestions and run them by you ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Don’t be sorry for being late! I don’t care WHEN people do it, even though I do it on Saturdays, I just want people to participate!

        I actually entered a giveaway on Goodreads a while ago for an audiobook of The Whisper Network, I didn’t win though. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        I didn’t really think I would love An Anonymous Girl as much as I did. It was a lot better than I had anticipated it to be.

        I honestly think after this conversation that I might do audiobooks one week, because I think a lot of people really enjoy audiobooks and I have some books that I have heard great things about the audiobooks.

  2. I’ve heard a lot about Anonymous Girl, but I haven’t written it yet. I’m not a huge Colleen Hoover fan, mostly because I feel there’s a lot of misconception in her characters and the relationships (at least the ones I’ve read about) are very toxic. I read November 9 and the Maybe Someday books, and that’s what I felt. She is a good writer though, and her books are quick reads, so I do want to give her another chance. Great post! I love the concept of this list.

    1. Let me know when you do end up reading An Anonymous Girl! One of the reasons why I want to read it eventually was because of the podcast I listened to. They are actually in the town I work in, so it was cool to listen to a local podcast!

      I haven’t read any Colleen Hoover books, but people keep raving about them. I may just not be into adult contemporary. Same thing happened with Kristin Hannah for me, and I wasn’t into it. I had to wish for the book to finish. Oh no I don’t like toxic relationship books ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Those books are the ones that have toxic relationship? I was going to read Maybe Someday for a book club but never got around to it. Maybe it was a good thing.

      Thanks Marti! I hope you jump in on this meme ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s pretty fun!

      1. It sounds fun to have a local podcast! November 9 is the book with one of the most toxic and wrong relationships I’ve read about for sure. Maybe Someday wasn’t that bad, I would put a trigger warning for cheating because I do not approve of that behavior and I just don’t like reading about it. My main issue with Maybe Someday was the protagonist, but who knows, maybe you would like it better!

  3. I read Sager’s “The Last Time I Lied” and it was pretty good! I enjoyed reading it, I think he’s a good writer. I’ll see what I can come up with for this post ๐Ÿ˜‰
