October Reading List | A Girl & Grey | @agirlandgrey

What have you been reading lately?

I’m on a major thriller kick right now, as you would have seen in last months reading list.

There’s something so nice about cosying up with a creepy page-turner in the late hours of the evening and early hours of the morning. I’m such a fan of reading when nobody else is awake, as I find it’s less distracting and really lets me get into the vibe of the book. It’s also kinda fun to be scared – irrationally so – similar to how you feel after watching a horror film.

As it’s October – and officially the spookiest time of the year – I’ve chosen three more thrillers to read. They’re all said to be disturbing and creepy and total page-turners…

Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica

Your husband and four year old daughter are involved in a violent car crash. Your daughter escapes unharmed, but your husband dies on the scene. At first, the crash is said to be an accident, however once your daughter starts having strange dreams, you begin to wonder if it really was…

Said to be a ‘twisted tale of secrets and deceit’, Every Last Lie is promising to be a gripping read. I can’t wait to dig in to this one! Grab your copy here.

A Stranger In The House by Shari Lapena

I’ve read a Shari Lapena novel before and absolutely loved the suspense it provided, and the fact that it kept me up until the early hours of the morning – I just had to finish it!

A Stranger In The House involves a car accident, as the previous book does, but also intertwined are elements of memory loss, suspicion and mistrust. I love stories that make the reader question which characters are reliable and which aren’t. It’s like a game of Cluedo except much, much scarier. Buy your copy here.

The Caller by Chris Carter

Admittedly, this book has been sitting on my nightstand for a while now. I’m not sure why it’s taking me so long to pick up, but I’ve set myself the task of reading it this month.

The Caller is about a predator that utilises social media and technology to torture their victims, a.k.a. very relevant for our ‘always online’ culture. Said to be terrifying, gripping and a ‘rollercoaster read’, I think this book is going to have me hooked after the very first chapter. Grab your copy here. 




Make sure to follow me on Goodreads to stay up to date with my reading progress throughout the month.

    I’m currently reading The Ranger Games (a true story!) and it’s so twisted so far. Love watching crime documentaries so I’m enjoying this book so far.

    I just finished Lincoln in the Bardo, which I loved. Also reading Osho’s Trust book and The Bettencourt Affair. I think I’m too wimpy to handle your spooky thrillers:).

      Hahaha! I will admit, last night I was up until midnight reading and I kept hearing the house creak and freaking out. Sometimes a more relaxed read is a good option!
