First off, thank you so much to Kelly for making my new header in honor of my 12 year blogoversary! Isn’t it so pretty? Kelly is just the sweetest – so go follow her blog, Diva Book Nerd. Speaking of my Blogoversary, you still have time to enter my Year’s Worth of Books giveaway, as well as book of choice (intl), book of choice (intl), and $10 amazon gift card.

Today I thought I’d share some of the books I’m currently wishing for/waiting on. I’m always adding books to Goodreads, so I figured why not share the love? To make this easier, I’m going to focus on certain genres. I won’t share the full summaries, because they are often long, but everything is linked to Goodreads! Today will be all about —-

Mysteries/Thrillers I Want to Read

The Look-Alike by Erica Spindler

Out: January 28, 2020

All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban

Full Summary on Goodreads: What do the queen bee, star athlete, valedictorian, stoner, loner, and music geek all have in common? They were all invited to a scholarship dinner, only to discover it’s a trap. Someone has locked them into a room with a bomb, a syringe filled with poison, and a note saying they have an hour to pick someone to kill … or else everyone dies.

In the Hall with the Knife by Diana Peterfreund

Out: October 8, 2019

Full Summary on Goodreads: When a storm strikes at Blackbrook Academy, an elite prep school nestled in the woods of Maine, a motley crew of students—including Beth “Peacock” Picach, Orchid McKee, Vaughn Green, Sam “Mustard” Maestor, Finn Plum, and Scarlet Mistry—are left stranded on campus with their headmaster. Hours later, his body is found in the conservatory and it’s very clear his death was no accident.

The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup

Full Summary on Goodreads:

If you find one, he’s already found you.

A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.

His calling card is a “chestnut man”—a handmade doll made of matchsticks and two chestnuts—which he leaves at each bloody crime scene.


I definitely have way more mysteries/thrillers on my wish list, but I wanted to focus on ones that haven’t been released yet.

What about you? Do we share any of the same books? Let me know your mystery/thriller book rec’s!

  1. I love a good thriller so I’m keen to see some of these! The Look-Alike definitely sounds promising. In The Hall makes me want to play Clue!

    The header looks great by the way

  2. Erica Spindler is a fantastic thriller author! I would be curious to read that new one of hers too. I love a good thriller/mystery as we get into fall. Something about huddling under blankets and getting just a little spooked!

  3. As a matter of fact, I DO love your new blog header! Happy Blogoversary!

    I have been on a Mystery/Thriller kick lately, so I was excited to see this post. I will have to check some of these out. I can’t wait for The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell, which will be my first read from her. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  4. Oooh your new header is so pretty, Lauren! Also so many books here I’d love to read—the one about the scholarship dinner sounds amazing but the description for The Imaginary Friend—needs more!

    Hope you’re having a great week! Xo

  5. The Look-alike and The Chestnut man sound SO good! I enjoy a book that keeps me guessing and I have quite a few on my TBR list (which just keeps growing).
    Your new blog header looks great!

  6. Oh man these are all new to me – and I’m a sucker for a good mystery, so I’m going to have to check them out. I’m about to read The Scholar, which is the follow up to The Ruin, an Irish detective story I’d definitely recommend. Also loved the twists and turns in Never Have I Ever.
