The Best Books of 2018: Thriller, Crime, and Mystery

It’s halfway through December and it’s time to update your 2019 reading list. Before I say goodbye to 2018 (in bookish style), I would like to share a list of my favorite reads. Since I started this blog in June, I will be including only those which I read from June to December.


Spine-tingling, mind-numbing, mind-blowing and jaw-dropping, I read quite a few interesting thriller and suspense books this year.

  1. I highly admire you for your dedication to read book religiously. I mean, how someone can read so many books!!!:-D

      1. One question. Do you remember all the books that you have read. Question Two. Are you doing your academics, or working! 😀

      2. I don’t remember the story point to point, but I remember the gist of it. And no, I am neither working nor studying. Had a facial paralysis five years ago and I am still in recovery mode. 🙂

      3. Oh!! So sorry…
        You inspire! Keep reading and sharing. Thy say “Books are the best friend”. Prayers from me for your fast recovery.

      4. I take it as a part of learning. 🙂 I have been brave all this while so no issues there. Thank you for your prayers. 🙂

      5. Indeed! That reflects in your indefatigable spirit. I have heard from many that adversity is a learning curve. But I guess, it needs indomitable courage
