Top 5 Best Thriller Books to Read This Spooky Seasons

I always down for a horror movie, but for a dose of real terror, I turned to thriller books. While ghosts and bloodthirsty creatures are certainly terrifying, the best scares are the ones that play with your head. After all, there’s nothing more freaky than being unable to trust your own mind, right?
It’s that time of the year when I just want to wrap myself under the sheets with a thrilling book in my hand and a hot coffee to calm me.. or not? Either way, after I put down the book, I will make sure all the doors and windows are locked.
Hence, here’s a list of my Top 5 Thriller Books to Read this Spooky Season:

1. The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life-as she sees it-is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. You’ll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend. This book debuted at No. 1 on The New York Times Fiction Best Sellers List. Feeling so lately reading this book last year ago.

2. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
The Da Vinci Code is a mystery of detective thriller books. In an exhilarating blend of relentless adventure, scholarly intrigue, and cutting wit, symbologist Robert Langdon-first introduced in Dan Brown’s bestselling Angels & Demons. This book heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightning-paced, intelligent thriller, surprising at every twist, absorbing at every turn, and in the end, utterly unpredictable, right up to its astonishing conclusion. I always love reading books about the detective.

3. Come Closer by Sara Gran
A popular choice for “top scary books” lists, this book charts a woman’s mysterious downward spiral. But is her unraveling caused by madness-or something even more terrifying and powerful? This is the question that’ll keep readers on the edge of their seats, as the source of Amanda’s violent mood swings, visceral nightmares, and monstrous thoughts continue to baffle herself, her family, and her friends. Hailed by Breat Easton as “hypnotic” and “disturbing”, this isn’t your average psychological thriller-and that’s what makes it all the more riveting.

4. The Secret History by Donna Tartt
If you love art, Greek mythology, mystery, and beautiful prose, this modern classic is for you. It started with a mistake that leads to deliberate murder. But what Tartt truly explored here was the satire approach to humanity, fleeting beauty, and death. It’s that kind of book that makes you look at your own frailties.

5. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
The old mansion, ghosts, paranormal disturbances, and all things are strange… This book will keep you wide awake. It’s an eerie take on a psychological thriller set in a 1950s backdrop. While reading, you will get more questions than answers – is it real? Is it happening? In the end, the main character’s psyche will give you a lot to ponder on.
There you go! I am more a psychological-thrillers-crime-fiction-than-straight-horror kind of girl. I guess I am very much fascinated by the human psyche more than anything else. Because there’s this line that I read which I’ll never forget: Monsters can be human but humans can be monsters, too.
