The Girl on the Train was one of the best books of 2015, by far. Not only was The Girl on the Train a bestseller, it was also an award-winner. But what should you read next, after an amazing book like that?
Omnivoracious, the Amazon book blog, is chock full of good book suggestions. This recent blog post is a great example of thoughtful minds curating interesting content about worthy books. In true “the Internet is eating itself” form, I’m posting a link to the blog that re-posts an article first posted by IndieReader.
Keri English, at IndieReader, has suggestions for other thrillers, if you liked The Girl on the Train. I finally checked this book off my to-read list. I listened to it, and it was highly entertaining. It took me so long because I’m a wimp when it comes to thrillers. (See my abandoned books post.) I had to read it because it was getting so much praise, in the press and from my friends.
Keri English’s suggestions are The Vanished — which sounds like that TV show starring Ryan Phillipe and Juliette Lewis called Secrets and Lies — as well as Big Lake Scandal, Taking Lives, Stolen and Unlovely.
I would also recommend the original psychological thriller that starts out on a train, Strangers on a Train, by Patricia Highsmith.
