Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I mean, the day is overrated, right? Read something that’s totally not mushy so that you can scoff at love!

  1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. If you haven’t read this absolutely mindblowing thriller…have you been living under a rock? Something isn’t right in Nick and Amy’s marriage, and when she disappears, the horrific truth unravels before the reader’s eyes.
  2. The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Who needs love when you can have some fabulous friendships and a twisty, breathtaking mystery?
  3. Night Film by Marisha Pessl. Who needs rom-coms when you can read about the creepy director of creepy horror movies, and a journalist obsessed with unmasking him?
  4. The Secret Place by Tana French. Picturesque boarding schools? Young love? Ha, you thought wrong!
  5. Wicked Games by Sean Olin. Teen love turns into something dark and dangerous.
  6. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. Twisty friendships and twisty relationships at the heart of a murder investigation!
  7. Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris. Past and present of an old boys’ boarding school start to collide.
  8. The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter. Deliciously creepy fairytale retellings and evocative prose.
  9. Faithful Place by Tana French. A girl from a detective’s past is found decades after her disappearance, dead. What went wrong?
  10. Dare Me by Megan Abbott. A cutthroat cheerleading team gets a new coach, and everything changes.
