As I’ve mentioned before, one of my important reading goals of 2023 is shrinking my physical TBR. Sometimes it’s hard to think of what books I still have or subjects I want to read about. So we needed a way to keep track of this. 5 On My TBR is a way of keeping track. This is a meme hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. Every week there’s a different prompt for five on my TBR.
This week’s topic is public transport. To be honest, I’m not really sure what to do with this topic. Seeing how we won’t be doing a 5 On MY TBR post next week, I’m going to do that topic which is murder. I have quite a few thrillers/mysteries I want to read, so let’s take a look!
The Only One Left – Riley Sager
I didn’t have the best start with Riley Sager’s books by starting with Survive the Night. I didn’t care for it, but I’ve heard I wasn’t the only one to think that way. The Only One Left is his newest book. I don’t know too much about this book and I like to keep it that way with mysteries/thrillers.
Murder in the Family – Cara Hunter
Murder in the Family is a book I recently saw on TikTok and it looked like a good one to read. A cold case murder and true crime show come together to investigate and re-interview everything and everyone during the series. This book is told through interviews, articles, etc. So it’s basically the question if we can solve the crime before the family in the book does. I’m excited to read Murder in the Family.
Good Bad Girl – Alice Feeney
Again, Good Bad Girl is a book I don’t know much about. All I know is that I’ve come to appreciate Alice Feeney’s books. Daisy Darker and Rock Paper Scissors were two books that I loved. This is actually on my October TBR.
Mister Magic – Kiersten White
Mister Magic is a supernatural thriller. I love the idea that this show revolves around a cast of a TV show that ended after tragedy. Things get weird when there seems to be no record of the show and only their memories. This seems like a perfect rainy day read.
Royal Blood – Aimee Carter
Our main character is the illegitimate daughter of the King of England. Her identity ends up revealed and when a murder takes place she’s the prime suspect. While trying to prove her innocence she also discovers a lot of secrets. Royal Blood sounds like a really one I’ll love. The sequel releases next year and I have the eARC, so time to read Royal Blood.
Here are some thrillers/mysteries on my TBR! Have you read any of these? Or what are some you want to read? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
