I don’t know about any of you, but I am desperately IN LOVE with the Fall season! I know what you’re all thinking: it’s not technically Fall yet, but we’re so close that I thought I would share my love with you all!
What I’m most excited is getting into Halloween. Sure, it’s months away, but I love a good scary story no matter what time of year it is! Here are some books I’m looking forward to reading this Fall!
1. In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
I just finished Ruth Ware’s novel The Woman in Cabin 10 (review will be up shortly!) and I’m excited to try another one of her stories. This one especially looks interesting and thrilling, and the cover art really invokes some seriously horrifying imagery for me!
2. Swerve: A Thriller by Vicki Pettersson
I’m not familiar with Vicki Pettersson, but the synopsis of this novel has me SUPER excited to check it out this season! I love the idea that a woman risks her life to rescue her kidnapped fiance rather than get help and return when it’s too late.
3. The Killing Lessons by Saul Black
Again, another author I don’t know, but this story looks like a good one. It’s more of a crime thriller, but the synopsis says, “Saul Black takes us deep into the mind of a psychopath, and into the troubled heart of the woman determined to stop him.” Creepy!
4. Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Haeberlin
A series of girls murdered, labeled the Black-Eyed Susans, and only one manages to survive. But she can’t remember exactly what happened. She thinks she sent the right man to prison for the crimes, but twenty years later someone plants a Black-Eyed Susan in her garden. Is the killer still living a free life? This setup makes for a great thriller!
5.The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon
Three girls find something terrifying inside an old abandoned motel, but choose to forget. Years later, they have no choice but to confront what they found in their youth, and hope it doesn’t take any of them down with it. Spanning two different time periods, I love thrillers that encompass generations!
What are you most looking forward to this season? Feel free to share your Fall Reading lists!
