What’s On My TBR List | Thriller Novels I Want to Read

During August, I decided to devote much of my time to preparing my debut crime thriller novel, Missing for publication. So that meant, revising my fourth draft and preparing the manuscript for editing. At present, I’m eight books behind schedule. In the spirit of reading and getting back on track in this episode of the Thriller Novel Nerd Podcast, I’m going to share with you exactly what’s on my TBR list.

A Very Chatty Thriller Novel Book Haul

A Very Chatty Thriller Novel Book Haul

So, way back at the end of April, I decided I wanted to start filming a regular thriller novel book haul on my YouTube Channel every month. I aimed to share them here on this blog, because I’m a bit of a bibliophile and a game nerd, as you can see by the wall of bookshelves behind me in the video. In my defence, the books and games aren’t all mine. My husband, Roland also has a bit of a book problem – he’s a book nerd and a game nerd. Actually, he came with the games and some of them are super cool, but I digress.

The Babylon Idol by Scott Mariani | A Spoiler Free Book Review

The Babylon Idol by Scott Mariani | A Spoiler Free Book Review

I’m back, and I’m doing another retrospective book review. Yes, classic me. At some point, I need to start taking notes as I read books. Because that’s the sensible thing to do. This new level of organisation would also mean that I don’t have to go back a re-read a book so I can write a review. However, my inner bibliophile doesn’t see an actual problem with this. In this blog post, I discuss why I loved The Babylon Idol by Scott Mariani and my biggest pet peeve in thriller novels.

The Cleaner by Mark Dawson | A Spoiler Free Book Review

The Cleaner by Mark Dawson | A Spoiler Free Book Review

This is another one of those classic cases where I’ve read a book and thought, I must review this book for my Thriller Novel Nerd Blog. Alas, several months later, I’m now getting around to writing the review for The Cleaner by Mark Dawson. The reason I wanted to write this review was twofold. First, I loved it. The book was unexpected deep, sad, and emotional. Second, the book was written by a successful self-published author. It’s my intention to review both sides of the publishing world, traditional and self-published or indie authors. Well, the best of both worlds.

The Atlantis Plague | A Spoiler Free Book Review

The Atlantis Plague | A Spoiler Free Book Review

t seems that old habits just won’t die. I finished reading The Atlantis Plague by A. G. Riddle on 10 July 2017. And, I’m glad to announce that I’ve finally got around to writing a review for it. This time I did manage to write down a few notes before I went on to read the next book in my current reading list. As always, I’ve tried to keep this book as spoiler free as possible because, let’s face it, most people hate spoilers. I must confess I do love a good spoiler for several reasons; the first being, I hate surprises. And the second, it adds a little suspense for me. Enough of that, let’s get started with the review.

When Will Thatcher, doesn’t show up for work, James Lalonde is forced to attend an afternoon tea with Alistair Carmichael in his place. The lovely autumn afternoon tea comes to an abrupt end when a body turns up on the lawn of the Carmichael Estate with strange markings on his neck.

 

But, something is missing, a priceless painting is off the wall. However, it’s no ordinary painting, it’s a Van Gogh purchased in an auction a few months ago. After discovering fresh tracks, most likely left by the murderer James realises the murder is still in the estate.

 

Can James figure out who the thief and murderer are before he or Alistair is next?

 

Read it, Today!
