Hi guys, welcome! Today is Friday, so it is time for another Connect Five Friday post. This week for Connect Five Friday, I have decided to talk about 5 mystery/thriller books that I think everyone should read.
Connect Five Friday is a feature/link up hosted by Book Date. For this feature you will have to make a list of five books or things connected to books. There is no set topic, so you can make a list of any bookish things.
Now without much further ado lets get to the list.
The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins
The first on the list has to be The Girl on the Train, I don’t know if it is my most favourite thriller or not but it is one of my favourites. I have seen a lot reviews where people say that before it was revealed they already new who the murderer was, but for me, I was totally surprised because I never thought that person could be the murderer.
Before I Go to Sleep by SJ Watson
It has a very interesting concept plus it has a lot of great twists and turns. And the main twist of the plot… oh my god… was just awesome. It just blew my mind. Definitely recommended. I did have some issues with this book but I think those issues were not that major. Read my full review for this book here.
Home by Harlan Coben
Another great thriller. It has a sense of suspense throughout and it does have not only one but two main twists. The first one I did suspect a bit, only a bit but the second one was totally a surprise.
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
A Poirot mystery written by Agatha Christie…. do I need to say anymore…. But this book stands out among other Poirot mysteries because of two reasons mainly, the two end twists, one mind boggling and another heart warming. This is an absolute must read in my opinion.
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
Another Agatha Christie Poirot mystery and this book is included in this list for one reason, the end twist…. NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WOULD I HAVE SEEN IT COMING AND I CAN GAURANTEE YOU IF YOU READ THIS BOOK, YOU ALSO WON’T BE ABLE TO SEE IT COMING. When I read this twist for the first time I was so shocked I thought I read it wrong and then I read it two more times, but the twist was so shocking that finally I had to resort to the Wikipedia plot of this book to make myself believe that this incredible twist actually happened.
Do you read mysteries? What are your favourite mysteries? Have you read any of the above mysteries? Do you think it deserves to be on this list?
