I’ve been getting asked more than usual ‘what book are you reading?’ because its become a common thing to share that with you all since many of us have the same taste in books! I hope you all will share recommendations in the comments because right now I’m not reading anything and can’t get into the ones I have recently downloaded. Anyway, Cait & I keep saying we want to start a book club because she and I enjoy the same books and always pass titles back & forth. Wouldn’t that be fun though!?
I remember reading Gone Girl & loving it – and soon after finishing it I googled ‘books similar to Gone Girl’ and apparently I was not the first to google that! One of the books that was recommended as similar to Gone Girl was Girl on the Train.. another that I loved. Depending on what is going on in my life, I use Audible or Kindle. I mainly use Audible if I am having to drive long distances or if I’m on an elliptical kick. (currently not on an elliptical kick but it does pass the time, PTL!) Okay, I get off subject easy but what I am trying to say is I wanted to share some of the books that I loved and recommend if you, too, enjoyed reading Gone Girl or Girl on the Train. The following books were ones that had mystery and were page turners for me.. I have several more that I have liked but these are the 10 best!
1. Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
Commonly recommended as similar to GG & GOTT – it was very good but out of these 10 – it was not my favorite!
2. The Pocket Wife by Susan Crawford
This one is pretty easy to get into & is a quick read!
3. Dear Darling by Elizabeth Little
Takes a little bit to get into this one but it ended up being twisted and very good.
4. The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
Read this right after Girl on the Train and liked it as much if not more.
5. Don’t Try to Find Me by Holly Brown
This one was easy to get into and was a page turner.
6. The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson
Oh this was super twisted and hard to put down!
7. The Silent Girls by Eric Rickstad
This was a recent read – I think I finished it on two flights coming home from somewhere?! So addictive.
8. Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter
Out of the ones I’ve read the past couple of months – this was 1 out of 2 favorites — another page turner with a story line you can easily get into & follow.
9. The Girl With No Past by Kathryn Croft
My mom actually recommended this one.. so far when I tell friends to read it they are just like me and read it quickly because its just good! It has some twists & a crazy story line.
10. The Obsession by Nora Roberts
Cait texted me about this one last week and I read it in a matter of days! I’ve tried to get into her books ‘The Liar’ & ‘The Search’ and neither are as good as this one!
I’ll have to do another post soon with just a few of the books I’m reading and loving that aren’t necessarily similar to GG & GOTT. If you do have some books that you loved, similar to those books – leave them in comments so I can read them! I need a good book to read this weekend! <3
