The Most Anticipated Thrillers of Summer 2019

I love summer reading; Although I am hours from any beach, I have a great outdoor space with a pool to lounge around and use that space to immerse myself in sunshine, water and, you guessed it, summer thrillers. As we’re heading into summer, I have already received some fantastic Advanced Reader Copies that have made me ridiculously excited for the hot months ahead. Here are the most anticipated thrillers of summer 2019.

1. The Night Before by Wendy Walker

When I think back on some of the summer reads that really solidify my love for warm weather reading, Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker is a top contender that blew me away. Wendy is a sweetheart (I’ve met her before) and one amazing storyteller.

So, when I heard her next novel is about a woman searching for answers about her sister’s disappearance after using an internet dating site, I was immediately obsessed. With Walker’s stunning prose, her ability to write dazzling characters and what I can only imagine is going to be a phenomenal ending – this is the perfect read to kick off the summer. Read More.

2. Necessary People by Anna Pitoniak

I read Anna Pitoniak’s debut The Futures on a whim and completely by accident. I was really drawn to it based on the cover alone and even though it wasn’t a suspense or thriller novel, I loved the story (which had some twists and turns of its own) and the characters in the novel.

When I saw the cover for Necessary People and realized that this one is, in fact, a psychological thriller, I immediately hit that Wish List button. A story set behind the scenes of TV news, this is a tale about rivalry between two friends that leads to disaster.

Not only am I excited for a women’s fiction novel with psychological thriller elements, but when it takes place in the world of entertainment, I am sure this is going to be the best read for Memorial Day weekend – which just so happens to land right around my birthday if you are reading this, Little, Brown!

3. The Island by Ragnar Jonasson

Ragnar Jonasson is the Stephen King of Icelandic thrillers. His novels are haunting, fantastically atmospheric and exceptionally clever. This is the second book in his The Darkness series and takes readers back to 1987 which is right up my alley as that is the year yours truly was born – and into one of the earlier cases of our protagonist Hulda Hermannsdottir.

This novel features two crimes, 10 years apart, on an island that may or may not be connected. The Island also features a fierce and genius detective who is willing to put it all on the line to find out the truth. I gobbled up The Darkness in a single Monday night and something tells me that The Island may be even more delicious. Read More.
