Fall makes me want to curl up on the couch by the fire with a good book and a warm drink. Reading is my happy place and one of my favorite ways to spend my time.

There’s just something about the fall – the colder temperatures, the roaring fires, the changing leaves…I love it all. I also happen to love Halloween. I have so many fond childhood memories that center around Halloween.

People love spooky stories. We get a rush being on the edge of our seat. Thrillers keep us turning pages late into the night – overwhelmed with an urge to know what comes next.

I wanted to share a few of my favorite “thrillers.” While not all on the list are traditional thrillers, they all feature an element of mystery and kept me turning the pages as fast as possible. I HAD to know what happened, who did it, and what was going on.

Look through my list, browse the titles on Amazon, and find a new thriller to settle in with this fall. Happy reading!!
