Hi Sammra,
I'm a fellow mystery and thriller fan. Wow, I can't say I'm surprised that Dan Brown's Inferno is #1. I'll be reading that as soon as I can get it from the library.

I just finished Dead Ever After, and I'm kind of glad that series is done. It was new and interesting at first, but it was dragged out too long.

I've read Ender's Game, and I am anxious to see the movie. I hope they don't screw it up! I'm actually reading the sequel now, Speaker for the Dead.

I also plan on reading Gone Girl, Wool Omnibus, The Light Between Oceans, and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. The movie for this last book looks good!

Samra 14 | 4 comments Hi Talia,
Thanx for your participation in the discussion.

I'm glad to hear that you are a mystery thriller fan...
i definitely will read all three which you've recommended..

Inferno (Robert Langdon, #4) by Dan Brown Inferno is a typical Dan Brown creation and you will not be disappointed if you like his writings which are an amalgam of facts and fiction.. I like his works cause you get a chance to peek into history of that particular area or era, along with an exciting exhilarating story.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn Gone Girl is a very good book. You will surely enjoy it if you believe in girl power ;)

I will try to read the others which you've mentioned by I face the issue of time constraint :(

keep us updated with your progress :D
