Lock Every Door is an exceptionally written horror/thriller novel. Riley Sager is very well known for writing thriller books, and this might just be one of the best written books by Riley. The storyline of the book is very interesting since it gives you insight on multiple characters’ perspectives. You not only get to feel what all the characters are feeling, but you also get an insight into their lives and how each character is so vastly different than the other.

I always try to incorporate different genres of books but I usually almost always tend to be biased towards thrillers. Colleen Hoover is most renowned for writing romance books, but Verity was one of her first thrillers. Verity is a type of book that once you pick it up, it's quite difficult to put it down without finishing it all. Every single page of this book is so detailed and vivid, that you feel as if you live in the book.

This book is a heart-stopping physiological thriller. When the book starts off, you can already feel the high tensions and emotions that are present, and as the book continues the feelings climax alongside the story. The story is based on a missing girl whose story has never been solved. The reason that the story is so enthralling is due to the fact that each section of the book is from a different character's perspective, giving the book more depth and allowing you to take in all sides of the story.

Home Before Dark is an exceptionally well-written psychological mystery book. While reading this book I felt several different emotions. At the beginning of the book it was somewhat of a slow read, showing you the daily life of the main character, but as the story accelerates the story gets more and more fascinating. There are so many different twists in the book and none of the aspects are too predictable making it an enjoyable read.

The Silent Patient proved to be one of the most thrilling books I have ever read. This book has so far been the only book to ever give me goosebumps. From the moment you turn the very first page till the very last moment of the book, you will always be on the edge of your seat. The main character of the book is so well developed to the point of making you believe that every bit of her is real. When I was reading this book it truly felt like I was captivated in the books’ world.

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is a mystery book filled with twists and suspense. Cassie just knows people. Ever since she was young, she could make scarily accurate assumptions about people. One day while she was working, a young man walked in and she couldn’t figure him out no matter how long she stared. When he left, he left a business card from the FBI.
