*sings* I wish you a merry Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year *sings*
You know I’m actually a good singer on here, I mean it could have something to do with the whole YOU CAN’T ACTUALLY HEAR ME but we won’t read too much into that fact, I AM A GREAT SINGER. No in all reality I can’t sing a tune to save my ass but we’re off topic.
Okay so if you’ve seen my other posts you’ll know I am indecisive and I decided to do my top 3 faves of the year in ALL THE GENRES. This list isn’t going to be so hard on my heart because I didn’t read to many good horrors/thrillers which is sad and will be rectified in the new year because I love gore, mystery, and all the evil monsters.
TOP 3 HORROR/THRILLER READS OF THE YEAR (also these aren’t books released this year these are books I read this year)
In Third Place is Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill
This book is everything you want in a Horror and it really surprised me. I know I’m not the only one who meets unlikable characters that we are supposed to be rooting for and disliking them SO much I end up hoping there murdered everything I turn a page (at least I hope I’m not alone in this) Starting this I really disliked both the MC’s but as we went on my hope for their death dwindled until I was nearing the last few chapters perched on the edge of my chair making small squeaking noises every time they had a close call.
The character Growth, damn the plot growth its intense and awesome.
Second Place is In The Woods by Tana French
If your like me and love a good Detective novel then meet Tana French. I’m a big fan of Detective Novels that all intertwine with side characters getting their own story and after Karen Rose I was looking for a new great Author and I found it in Tana French and this book. I love the relationship between the Detective in this story, the mystery, the surprisingly paranormal aspect that I was not expecting. A great thriller/mystery.
And in the most prized and prime position: You by Caroline Kepnes
Who seen this coming from a week ago? I AM OBSESSED (one could say almost stalker like) with this book.
You is told in second person and focuses on Joe our main character who owns a book store, loves to read, and stalks a girl named Beck that just happened to wonder into his store. I just.. I love Joe. I know I shouldn’t, he’s seriously messed up and I wouldn’t want to date him but he’s smart and funny, he’s not your average creeper in a trench coat. Also I love weird shit and Joe is the weirdest of them all. I mean he kidnaps someone and forces them to read and THEN quizzes them on the book. look I’m not saying I would actually do this because I like to think I’m pretty sane BUT if I ever did crack you know this would be an awesome form of torture to a non reader.
