What Spooky/Suspenseful things are you planning to read?

Remember that the Group Read for this month is And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie and The discussion Boards will be linked below. If you've already read it be sure to comment as well and let us know what you thought of the book.

And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie (Non-Spoiler):
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie (SPOILERS):
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Also if you saw the recent BBC adaptation of it be sure to let me know you're thoughts on it!

I think I'll Reread Patient Zero (Joe Ledger, #1) by Jonathan Maberry or Rot & Ruin (Rot & Ruin, #1) by Jonathan Maberry so I can continue on with the series. As you can see I'm going the Zombie route Lol

I'm going to shop my shelves and see what else I have, So my TBR may change a bit.

UPDATE:
Okay, Found Hemlock Grove by Brian McGreevy and I keep meaning to read it and Rewatch the first season of the show and then watch Season 2, & 3. Finally! So it's going to be Number one on my TBR for the month of March.

Hana'a (osnapitzhanaa) | 166 comments I don't really have any spooky or suspenseful books to read so I might just give myself a certain number of books to read off my tbr list. I might reread The Witness The Witness by Josh McDowell
Also, something I was thinking we could do for next years AYearAThon or even this years because it is so early is maybe do like 2 themes for people who don't like certain month themes, but nothing major like we could have spooky and suspenseful as the main and do "books that start with E" or the exact opposite theme. For example instead of spooky, read a lighthearted comedy. Just a thought so even when people don't like a theme they can still participate in it.


message 3: by Jake (new)

Jake Kropik (jkjkjk15) Im just going to post this now.....

I plan on reading Horowitz Horror Stories You'll Wish You Never Read by Anthony Horowitz 4951] , The Lost Days (Emily the Strange Novels, #1) by Rob Reger (Also helps another challenge) , and the group read, And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie ! Im sticking to a pretty tame TBR for this readathon! (My months TBR is 11 books, and one of these books are not even on it... failing before the month even starts :P)


message 4: by Elizabeth (last edited Feb 27, 2016 04:47AM) (new)

Elizabeth I'm planning on reading They Came Out After Dark (Tales of Crow #1) by Chris Ward They Came Out After Dark, Deadly Descent by R.G. Porter Deadly Descent then we'll see .since I have a lot of horror books on my TBR, as well as And Then There Were None And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie as well as Murder on the Orient Express (A Hercule Poirot Mystery) by Agatha Christie Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie


message 5: by Maija (new)

Maija (maijavi) | 180 comments I'm continuing my habit of picking a book that I've owned for ages for these challenges, and this time I'd like to read The Red Tree The Red Tree by Caitlín R. Kiernan by Caitlin R. Kiernan. If might be more dark fantasy than horror, but I feel it fits the theme.


message 6: by Ana (last edited Feb 27, 2016 02:18PM) (new)

Ana (404-equivalent) | 90 comments I've decided to compile a list to choose from. This is it so far:
You (You, #1) by Caroline Kepnes We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis Red Dragon (Hannibal Lecter, #1) by Thomas Harris Coraline by Neil Gaiman The Merciless by Danielle Vega 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad

I've already read the group read but I might check out the discussion topics. I'm not a big suspense/horror reader, so if anyone read any of the books mentioned, please tell me you liked them or not and if you'd recommend them. :)


message 7: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten (kielianne) | 164 comments Hmm, I still have so many books I'm "currently reading" but I want to participate in this too... oh the dilemma. If I do I'll be reading the group read And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie and then maybe another Agatha Christie book.


message 8: by Miranda (last edited Feb 29, 2016 08:56AM) (new)

message 9: by Emilee (new)

Emilee McDonald | 38 comments I am going to read dracula


message 10: by Jessica (new)

Jessica I'm going to read Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #3) by Ransom Riggs Library of Souls since it is a bit creepy and I don't usually read to many spooky type books. I really like the first 2 books (if you haven't read them you should)

I'm hoping to read the group read as well since I have never read an Agatha Christie book and probably should. :D


message 11: by Jake (new)

Jake Kropik (jkjkjk15) I also may make an attempt at Library of Souls of I have time. I think they can fit into this theme! Also, Ms Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children Trilogy is my all time favorite, and I haven't even finished it!


message 12: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Chung (bingereader19) | 123 comments This readathon is going to be very difficult cause I have a ton of these types of books. I'm currently hosting #stephenking2016 and we are reading The Talisman (The Talisman, #1) by Peter Straub .

I also might try to finish Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and then maybe pick up some graphic novels American Vampire, Vol. 3 by Scott Snyder The Sandman, Vol. 2 The Doll's House (The Sandman #2) by Neil Gaiman and lastly maybe a novella Pure Evil by Jesse Bastide


message 13: by tiara (new)

My plan is:
Poema de Mio Cid
La Celestina

message 14: by Lara (new)

Lara (laraiswrite) | 100 comments I'm going to attempt to break through the lingering effects of my February reading slump by reading Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allan Poe. I figure a series of short stories and such will be perfect for that. =p I'll also aim to finally read Dracula by Bram Stoker. Both of these books have been sitting on my shelf since high school, waiting for me to have more than just a browsing interest in them. Haha.

message 26: by Kirsty (new)

Kirsty (gondorianjedi) | 91 comments I wasn't sure i'd be able to find any books to read for this months theme, but I got A Madness So Discreet from the library today so that kind of counts.
That or i'll keep trying to get through 11/22/63 which isn't really a thriller but seeing as it's by Stephen King I feel it kind of counts.
My audiobook i'll be continuing to listen to next week is Brisingr by Christopher Paolini which is not on theme, but i'm enjoying it!

I picked that up last for a re read since I haven't read it in a while and of course loved it.

Coraline is an easy and enjoyable read. And American Psycho is great. Both Neil Gaiman and Bret Easton Ellis are some of my fav authors.

message 39: by Jake (new)

Jake Kropik (jkjkjk15) Hoping to finish everything, everything today. I have 200 pages left... I'm for sure finishing, and if I'm still in the mood I might jump in this readathon a day early because I won't have much time to read Mon-Thursday since I have School/Drivers Ed. (Usually have work too, but with Drivers Ed I asked not to be scheduled during the week)


message 40: by I'mogén (new)

I'mogén (peacecookiesbooks) | 71 comments Good luck, Jake!


message 41: by BooksAmL (new)

message 42: by Magalys (new)

Magalys I don't think I've read more than a handful of books from this genre but I'm going to the The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd and the Agatha Christie novel if time allows for it because I believe I found I copy at my library. :)


message 43: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly Costa (kimcosta) I need to get to these

The Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah
After the Woods by Kim Savage

The Skin Collector by Jeffery Deaver ( been reading)

message 45: by Jake (new)

Jake Kropik (jkjkjk15) Oh shoot I also plan on reading Hell School: Freshmeat. I received a free early copy from the author for review!


message 46: by Noseinabook (new)

Noseinabook (goodreadscomnoseinabook) | 55 comments So this month's theme is not one I usually read. I'm not big into suspense and I usually hate horror. Still, part of the reason I'm doing this read-a-thon is to get out of my reading comfort zone. That being said, my TBR consists of quite a few books so that I can pick up whatever I find interesting. Most of these fall into the mystery category, as opposed to "thriller/horror". I had already read the group read so I have two different Agatha Christie novels to choose from: The Mirror Cracked and Clocks. I also have a Murder She Wrote novel called Martini's and Mayhem, a Nora Roberts detective mystery called Brazen Virtue, and Big Boned (Heather Wells Mystery 3) by Meg Cabot. I even have one horror which is House by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. I'm probably not going to get to all of these, but this way I have a lot of variety to choose from. Happy reading everyone!


message 47: by Heli (new)

Heli | 13 comments Hi everybody! This is my first read-a-thon and I'm really excited :)
So, since I've lately been in a bit of a reading slump and am also quite busy this week with other things, I want to take it slowly. I plan to finish Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and then start either The Last American Vampire by Seth Grahame-Smith or Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith . I also want to continue with the Sandman -series by Neil Gaiman and also Neil Gaiman's Death The High Cost of Living (Death of the Endless, #1) by Neil Gaiman (these are all craphic novels). I hope these fit into the category for this month's read-a-thon :) Yay!


message 48: by Danielle ♥ (last edited Mar 07, 2016 07:33AM) (new)

Danielle ♥ (daniellewaltz) | 11 comments I will be reading And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie along with the group!!! ☺ This isn't a genre I often read yet I always enjoy this genre so I'm looking forward to it!


message 49: by Mabel (new)

Mabel (friendlvr) I actually wanted to read horror books, but couldn't really find any so I got 3 which had fell under the teen horror category according to my library... Those three books are On the Day I Died by Candace Fleming, The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer, and The End Games by T. Michael Martin. If I have time I will also be reading Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick which is the third book in the Hush Hush series.
