I am a part of the Goodreads community and I absolutely love it. Not only that I can track my ‘done reading’ books but I can make a TBR lists, I can read books reviews, I can follow authors and have news about their books and I can post my own reviews. Right now I have 150 books on my TBR list but I will list here the 10 books that I absolutely want to read. 🙂
- A Hole in Serenity by Mark Draycott (Goodreads Author)
As this story of obsession, lust and delusion slowly unfolds, the residents of Furnage are brought to a shocking halt leaving the village in tatters. Simon and Kerry’s nightmare is one that they will never wake up from and one that could happen to any one of us.
A Hole in Serenity is a gripping, debut psychological thriller that will have you impatiently turning each page.
2. The Good Girl by Mary Kubica (Goodreads Author)
One night, Mia Dennett enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn’t show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. At first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia’s life.
3. Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica (Goodreads Author)
In downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she’s the person Quinn thought she knew.
Meanwhile, in a small Michigan harbor town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her charm and beauty, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more dark and sinister than he ever expected.
4. All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda (Goodreads Author)
It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.
The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.
5. The Widow by Fiona Barton
When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor turned into a different woman. One who enabled her and her husband to carry on, when more bad things began to happen…
But that woman’s husband died last week. And Jean doesn’t have to be her anymore.
There’s a lot Jean hasn’t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.
6. Not My Father’s Son by Alan Cumming
Alan grew up in the grip of a man who held his family hostage, someone who meted out violence with a frightening ease, who waged a silent war with himself that sometimes spilled over onto everyone around him. That man was Alex Cumming, Alan’s father, whom Alan had not seen or spoken to for more than a decade when he reconnected just before filming for Who Do You Think You Are? began. He had a secret he had to share, one that would shock his son to his very core and set into motion a journey that would change Alan’s life forever.
7. Sister by Rosamund Lupton (Goodreads Author)
When her mom calls to tell her that Tess, her younger sister, is missing, Bee returns home to London on the first flight. She expects to find Tess and give her the usual lecture, the bossy big sister scolding her flighty baby sister for taking off without letting anyone know her plans. Tess has always been a free spirit, an artist who takes risks, while conservative Bee couldn’t be more different. Bee is used to watching out for her wayward sibling and is fiercely protective of Tess (and has always been a little stern about her antics). But then Tess is found dead, apparently by her own hand.
8. In the Name of Honour: A Memoir by Mukhtar Mai
In June 2002, Mukhtar Mai, a Pakistani woman from the impoverished village of Meerwala, was gang raped by a local clan known as the Mastoi — punishment for indiscretions allegedly committed by the woman’s brother. While certainly not the first account of a female body being negotiated for honor in a family, this time the survivor had bravely chosen to fight back. In doing so, Mai single-handedly changed the feminist movement in Pakistan, one of the world’s most adverse climates for women. By July 2002, the Pakistani government awarded her the equivalent of 8,500 U.S. dollars in compensation money and sentenced her attackers to death — and Mukhtar Mai went on to open a school for girls so that future generations would not suffer, as she had, from illiteracy.
9. An Evil Mind–A Suspense Novel by Tim Kizer (Goodreads Author)
On December 11, fifteen-year-old Helen Hinton is brutally murdered in an abandoned house.
Her killer, Edward Phillips, is caught and sentenced to death. Helen’s blood was on Edward’s clothes and shoes, the murder weapon has his fingerprints on it.
Edward claims he’s innocent. He’s telling the truth.
Two months after Edward Phillips is transferred to death row, a murder similar to Helen’s occurs in another city. The victim is eighteen-year-old Laura Sumner.
10. A Journal of Sin (Sarah Gladstone #1) by Darryl Donaghue (Goodreads Author)
A village, isolated by a severe storm, and a young officer, alone and out of her depth. A troubled priest is brutally murdered, leaving behind a journal of the resident’s confessional secrets; secrets certain people would prefer he took to the grave.
As word spreads, the pressure rises as the eyes of the town watch her every move. With no forensic team, no support and a savage killer hiding in a turbulent town, is PC Sarah Gladstone up to the task?
These are just 10 books from my TBR Goodreads list, though there are so many more that I can’t wait to read. Being the fact that I started school I don’t think I’ll have a lot of time left for reading but hopefully I’ll find at least half an hour every day. I hope you enjoy these books!
Have a great Monday and Happy Reading! 🙂
