I like Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels . There are 20 odd of them in a sort of series (but can be read individually ) .

I like to read them in order, up to number 10 at the moment . I buy them off ebay (3 or 4 at a time when there's a deal on ) , probably only cost £1.50 -£2 each buying them that way .

I'm a huge fan of Harlan Coben, so I would recommend anything by him.His books are great and very twisty.

Oh love Harlan Coben too laraquinn, as am a big fan of crime thrillers. Also love Simon Kernick, as writes such fast paced, edge of your seat thrillers

Anything by Adele Parks I have found them very good - they are stand alone (unlike the Jack Reacher novels) 🐞

Lynibis yes it's on Amazon,one of their channels,I had to take out a subscription to watch it 🙂 worth every penny though,I read the books and the series is amazing,fantastic cast.

Another good one was #The Outsider#,I watched the series first then read the book,i believe it should still be on catch up on one of the sky channels x

I have been reading Hocus Pocus and the all new sequel. I only learnt that it had been written a couple of weeks ago and immediately bought it as I love the movie and wanted to know what happened next. It's also brilliant for the season

Atomic Habits by James Clear. Self help book with actual actionable advice and not regurgitating motivational stories.

Another recommendation for Harlan Coban. Also if you like Stephen King then would also no doubt like Dean Koontz. My favourites are the Odd Thomas series & Servants of twilight. The Bad Place is a strange read too.

I like James Patterson books too. His earlier work tho. For none crime / thrillers I always enjoy Nick Alexander's books.
