Thrillers are the perfect beach read for a reason; you get so absorbed by the mystery and suspense that before you know it, you’ve been at the beach for hours and have a nice new tan to show for it! There are some exciting new thrillers coming out soon that you definitely need to check out for your beach-read needs. Here are some old and some new that you should add to your summer reading list:
Night Film by Marisha Pessl Ok, so this was technically released in 2013, but I read it last year and it was so good I had to share it. This story follows Scott Mcgrath, a once respected and successful journalist who lost his family and his career when he stuck his nose in the wrong place. Years earlier, Mcgrath attempted an investigation into the life of the mysterious horror film director, Stanislas Cordova. Cordova is known for his movies that are so disturbing they are not available to the general public; instead, they have an underground cult following. Not much is known about Cordova, and those who participated in his films never talk about them. There is definitely something sketchy going on, and Scott Mcgrath is determined to uncover the gritty and horrifying truths behind Cordova’s films.
The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North This book is about a girl who no one can remember. It started when she was 16 years old and her parents started to slowly forget her, setting a table for three instead of four. This means that she can do or say whatever she wants. She could call someone fat or rob a bank and it wouldn’t matter because no one would remember. This makes her very powerful and very dangerous.
Among the Wicked by Linda Castillo This book comes out this July. This murder mystery is the latest adventure of chief of police, Kate Burkholder. She is assigned to go undercover as an Amish woman and investigate a reclusive and mysterious Amish community after the death of a young girl. Without modern technology, Kate is on her own and must solve the case the old-fashioned way. Soon, Kate uncovers shocking secrets and realizes she is trapped and alone, fighting for her life.
So there you have it, three thrillers you should definitely check out this summer. And as always, happy reading!
