Can’t Get Enough of . . . is a new monthly feature here at The Book Nympho where we give you lists of books that are similar either by topic, genre, character types, etc. You can find new posts mid-month on Friday.
I’ve made no secret of my love for the mystery and suspense genre. It’s a popular reading category so I’m one of many who enjoy a good whodunnit.
What I haven’t been so open about is my love for the edgier stories in this genre. I’m drawn to the more highly suspenseful books, the more murder and mayhem the better. No cozy mysteries for me as there’s just not enough action, thrills and psychos to keep me interested.
Here are some of my favorite authors and series, guaranteed to create chills, fright and keep you up at night.
- Tell No One
- Gone for Good
- Just One Look
- Missing You
- Rescue Me
- Return to Me
- Run to Me
- No Chance
- Second Chance
- Last Chance
I call her the queen of romantic suspense. Her unnamed series is one of the finest and don’t let anyone convince you they can be read out of order if solving the crimes is important to you. You’ll run into spoilers about the earlier crimes and her bad guys are really, really bad. Here’s what I’ve read:
- Don’t Tell
- Have You Seen Her?
- I’m Watching You
- Nothing to Fear
- You Can’t Hide
- Count to Ten
- Die for Me
I consider her the queen of murder and mayhem. Her killers commit gruesome crimes and her main characters are sometimes fair game. I LOVE her Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series and if you can get the audiobooks, they’re even better. Here’s what I’ve read:
- The Mermaids Singing
- The Wire in the Blood
- The Last Temptation
Are murder and mayhem your game?
Who keeps you up at night?
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
