Perhaps the best-known murder mystery of all time, And Then There Were None absolutely epitomizes suspense. Ten strangers meet on an isolated British isle at the behest of their oddly absent hosts. Christie brilliantly immerses the reader in the fear and paranoia of the guests as they try to determine who among them is the killer… before their time runs out. The big question at the heart of A Simple Favor is, who is Emily? This novel follows a dysfunctional family with a terror of a daughter you might call her a bad seed.
Sometimes you get in the mood for a little suspense, and there's no better way to scratch that itch than with a killer book—literally. Thrillers never fail to get your heart pumping, getting you turning the page at warp speed while also delivering an oddly satisfying uneasiness about what's to come. To add a bit of excitement to your bookshelf, we found some of the best thriller books out there—many of which have been adapted for the big screen.

Rachel always observed a woman from her train as she passed the suburbs. But what happens when this woman goes missing? Rachel feels compelled to solve the mystery and stumbles upon dark, shocking truths in the process. The narration keeps you gripped and it's a truly chilling read. I stayed up all night finishing it! Girl on the Train is a page turner from the very beginning, but it picks up momentum in the second half like you would not believe! I finished it in math class probably not a wise choice, but I could not put it down and risked an F for the day just to get through the last few chapters.
