14 Suspense Books Goodreads Users Can’t Keep Quiet About This Year

Paperback Paris

Brace yourselves, Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins lovers!

Picking up suspense-driven books with a slight fear factor to them has become second nature to me. Whenever I’m looking for the latest thriller or suspense novel, I look to Goodreads. Unsurprisingly, the results I am met with are suggestions promoted as the next Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. (Which I’ve yet to find, btw.)

But with each passing year, there comes a fresh new wave of promising writers along with it. I consider 2017 especially hopeful, as some of my favorite mystery writers are all due to release new books this year. Nevertheless, somewhere in the brush of popular writers are heat-seeking authors with equally gripping thrillers as engaging as their ancestors.

So if you’re a sucker for suspense, these are the 14 new and forthcoming thriller releases that will have you overloading your library holds queue quicker than you know it!

Average Goodreads Rating: 3.66/5

“There’s a sinister air throughout, with unknown voices and footsteps on creaking floorboards in the dead of night. There are lots of threads to the storyline, lots of frayed edges, but Paula Hawkins pulls them all together to create a fascinating read.” — Maureen
