Suspenseful Books That Are Captivating & Chilling

Oct 10, 2017

I haven’t always enjoyed reading thrillers and previously preferred not to (I even have a hard time watching scary movies) but this past year I’ve been dipping my toes into the genre and find it captivating and chilling at the same time. If you’re looking to add some thrill to your night, here are three spooky books to read this October.

Final Girls by Riley Sager

Warning: this book might make you think twice about camping in the woods.

Ten years ago Quincy Carpenter spent a weekend in the woods with five friends from college. She was the only one to survive. In an instant, she became part of a club no one wants to belong to – The Final Girls. Women who have survived horrific tragedies to become known as the last ones standing and who have a cultish and obsessive fandom as a result. As Quincy struggles to move on with her life she is brought back in an instant when another Final Girl dies in her own bathtub under suspicious circumstances. Is Quincy next? To figure out what’s really going on, Quincy must return to the night in the woods and discover who murdered her friends. This book kept me guessing until the end and I was surprised to find out “who-done-it”. I’d definitely recommend reading this one … but not while camping!

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

A story of a man living with the consequences of choice in a multiverse. I read this book in two sittings and was thoroughly captivated the entire time. If you’re looking for a book filled with twists and turns and a dose of science fiction, pick this one up.

“Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human—a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we’ll go to claim the lives we dream of.”

In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

Reclusive writer Leonora reluctantly heads to the English countryside for a weekend away with friends which quickly takes a sinister turn. The party quickly comes to realize: they’re not alone in the woods.
