These are the Best Thriller Books That I Have Ever Read


Madeline Galassi I’ve always been a reader. When I was little, as well as throughout high school and college I enjoyed reading. Within a few days, I’m done with them and then I frantically search for the next one.


There is one caveat. I mainly only read thriller novels. Since I was in second grade and my dad bought me the Nancy Drew series, I’ve loved feeling the suspense of not knowing what was going to happen in the story I was reading. However, the problem is: If thriller books work well, it’s great. When they don’t, however, they are almost as bad or worse than any other book.


It’s like picking between my favourite books. I have put so much effort into them each and they are all my favorites. These 10 are my top-rated thrillers (and others older, more famous ones), which I debated and can assure you are well worth the effort. You won’t want to leave the garden until you finish these books.


This was the book I read last New Year. Alicia is a beautiful woman who seems to lead a perfectly normal life. However, her husband visits and she kills him. The case is notorious for her inability to speak, and you’ll never guess the last thing she does. Voted the best thriller of 2019, this one is worth the hype.


Silence of the Lambs


Since the very first time that I saw the film “The Silence of the Lambs”, in second grade, I have been the greatest fan of the series. To this day, I will go to my death bad saying that this is the best movie of any genre, period. This is how you can picture my disgust at being a fake fan when I finally realized there was a book. It took me 48 hours to read, and it’s even better than that movie. It gives more insight into the story and the inner workings of Hannibal Lecter’s mind, and with Anthony Hopkin’s portrayal of him inevitably playing in your head as you read, it doesn’t get much better than this.
