I suggest Anne Fine's "The Killjoy" (1986) or John Fowles' "The Collector" or Ian McEwan's "The Cement Garden."

The Killjoy sounds very good, but alas not available for Kindle. The collector and the Cement Garden also sound good, albeit a little old. Not that I don't enjoy older books too, I just haven't read anything but contemporary stuff in a very long time (other than a few classics). I'm going to download The Collector and see how I like it, as it seems pretty good. Between it and The Cement Garden, which would you think I might enjoy more?

I preferred "The Collector," myself. "The Cement Garden" might be too light on suspense for you, though it is definitely twisted.

The Collector is a classic from my youth. Was made into an amazing film in the 60s.

I recently read Gone Girl and Catch me. Both had a few twists that you might like.

I've read Gone Girl and loved it. Saw the film "Catch Me" with Leonardo DeCaprio, about the pilot. Is that the same one?

ETA: LOL, if you're talking about Lisa Gardner's new one, "Catch Me", I reviewed that for Library Journal pre-publishing. In fact, it hasn't been published yet (Feb.). Oops, maybe you haven't read that one.

Yes, it was Lisa Gardner's book. I got it at the library last month. The one with Leonardo DeCaprio was Catch Me if you Can. I think LOL

Wait, I'm thick tonight. It was "Touch and Go" by Lisa Gardner that I read and reviewed. I think I've read Catch Me also, however. I downloaded "The Collector" and I hope I enjoy it. Thanks to all of you for the recommendations. So many good books to add to my TBR journal in this thread!!

Have you read the Body Farm series by Jefferson Bass? Definitely twisted lol. The first one is Carved in Bone.

Also, the David Hunter series by Simon Beckett. The first book in the series is The Chemistry of Death.

Both series are forensic science thrillers and are pretty intense!

I'm reading "The Collector". Thank you sven. I started it last night and was a bit put off by the British slang at first. I never knew the lottery was called "pools" lol. I worked it out without having to look it up. I'm now in the section where the girl is telling her side of the story, and it has me so nostalgic. Although this was written before I was born, it's true that the human experience is timeless. I remember when I was at college and had her idealistic view of the world, or even her pessimistic view and how "above" it I and people "like me" (my friends, other like-minded students) were. Oh, how we become so jaded and day-to-day as we grow older. I miss those days.

Wow, last night was an intense reading night lol. I've gotten hooked on The Experiment in Terror series, which is a mix between The X-Files, Ghost Hunters and then throw in a heavy dose of crazy romance angst I finished Dead Sky Morning (the third installment) on Friday and usually I don't read series books back to back, but I had to know what happened next so I bought the next book, Lying Season, last night. Kids and hubby were at a hockey game so I decided to read it and oh. my. gosh. I could NOT put it down. I finished it at 10pm, immediately bought the next one in the series and stayed up past midnight and read the whole thing (On Demon Wings). Wow....just wow. So, so intense! I bought the next book, Into the Hollow, this morning and I'll read it tonight. And then I'm caught up in the series until the next release comes out later this year.

If you like Stephen King/Dean Koontz type of books, but with a dose of Fifty Shade of Grey, this series is for you

Lol you sound like me! I did that a few years ago with the Twilight books. I didn't think they were that great but it bothered me not knowing what happened in the next book haha. Who is the author of the Experiment in terror series?

Love to read! There are a lot of great recommendations here. Definitely going to pick some of these books up. I picked up Cleopatra:A Life today at Barnes and Noble, I've always wanted to find out more about her. She was so powerful I her shortish life. this book is supposed to be a much more accurate account than the Hollywood movie(Elizabeth Taylor) and other fictional stories that have swirled around about her.
The last book I read was The Wind up Bird Chronicle by Japanese author Haruki Murakami. I also read Norwegian Wood by the same author before that. Both novels were translated from Japanese. I liked Norwegian Wood better, but have mixed feelings about both-especially the endings.

Yeah, the first book is free so you get totally hooked and end up buying the rest of the series They're pretty cheap though, I think $2.99-$3.99 per e-book

Loving the first book, Sara! Perry is so funny with her sarcastic way of talking.

Thanks for the list, Annabelle. Some of those have been recommended by others too, so I know they must be good! Love your Avi!

Ok, just finished Into the Hollow by Karina Halle, the 6th installment in the Experiment in Terror series. A solid 5/5 star rating from me There's a couple .5 books I still need to read and then I'll be all caught up with the series until the new one comes out later this year.

My library hold of Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff is in transit and I'm hoping that comes in tomorrow. Though, after reading several Experiment in Terror books, I don't know if I'm up for more horror right now and Yovanoff's books are pretty dark. I really wish my library hold of The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst would come in soon, but the wait list is ridiculously long

Ended up reading Rootless by Chris Howard today. This was a solid YA dystopian story from a debut author and I'll definitely read future books from him

Bummed that my library holds didn't come in today Hopefully tomorrow-I've got 6 of them in transit right now!

So this afternoon I'm going to read a YA zombie/dystopia book, This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers. This book is getting a lot of buzz on book blogs and Goodreads right now so hopefully it's good

Thanks so much TJ. I was just making a list and I thought I would start on page 5 and work my way back. So glad I did, you made it so easy for me.
