Ever since I finished Luckiest Girl Alive, I’ve been looking for something equally exciting, disturbing, and easy to read. I stumbled upon Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner on iBooks and finished it in one night. I preordered Gardner’s newest novel, Find Her, and read The Good Girl by Mary Kubica until it was released. I realized I was spending way too much money on my iBooks and headed to the library a week ago. I deep in Fear Nothing right now, always on the edge of my seat, and forcing myself to leave it home so I don’t sneak a read during my work day.
All of these books are so compelling that I find myself reading until the wee hours. The protagonist is always female and the villain, well I don’t want to give too much away. Having a female protagonist who is usually the victim of a violent crime, or in some cases she is the detective solving the violent crimes, always intrigues me. I also end up extra cautious in my daily life though and extra suspicious of anyone I see. It’s a problem I have… I have to admit, if you’re sensitive or prone to nightmares, don’t read any one of these psychological thrillers. There are violent and disturbing images, as well as suspenseful scenes – so I’d compare these novels to a very long episode of Criminal Minds. If you can’t handle crime tv shows, you won’t be able to handle any of these books!
Each novel is just as captivating as the next and I recommend that if you start one, you should have another in your queue because you will be sad when it’s over.
