Who else is a bookworm? If you love a thrilling page turner, take a peek at my 9 best thriller books and page turners from 2018. These reads are all very suspenseful and every one of these titles unexpected twists. Some of them have a handful of twists! These books truly are my curated faves from what I read last year and what I’d classify as part of the “Thriller” category of the Gone Girl or Girl on a Train style.
I think all of these books would be fun and interesting for Book Club too. I think choosing a thriller for a Book Club read is a great idea since usually EVERYONE will actually read the book because they can’t put it down AND, if it’s a great thriller, there will be LOTS to talk about. With my below thriller list, I’d say that the characters were faced with some pretty impossible choices not to mention all of these titles have very surprising twists so that leaves all kinds of opportunities for interesting conversation and discussion at Book Club!
9 Best Thriller Books and Page Turners from 2018
These books listed are in no particular order as I loved them all! That being said, if I had to pick only 2 of the fastest easiest reads that would be great to take on a plane or read at the beach, I’d pick Something in the Water and Need to Know!
And as I said above, all of these reads on my list would be fabulous for Book Club discussion!

This book will leave you GUESSING page after page. Excellent writing and a great suspenseful “who done it” type of read!
This book is a Sci-Fi thriller so a bit different than the other books on the list. It’s a total page turner and the actual REAL science and military history included in the book is fascinating; not to mention the Sci-Fi aspect of the story seems totally realistic which made Reset a 2018 favorite for me!
What thriller books did you love from 2018? I’m always looking for new page turners to read!
Note: I probably read close to 100 books per year, mostly fiction that’s a mix of quality reads like best sellers, popular thrillers, and historical fiction combined with all kinds of more junky & random reads that I absolutely adore, but wouldn’t recommend to anyone else unless they have similar interests in me and dig the same genres – think historical or medieval romances or other fun science fiction finds that I get for free from my Kindle Unlimited membership.
