Looking for a book which will give you goosebumps? Here are some books which will keep you holding till the end!


Someone was following her. She had read about stalkers, but they belonged in a different, faraway world. She had no idea who it could be, who would want to harm her. She was trying desperately hard not to panic, but lately her sleep had been filled with nightmares, and she had awakened each morning with a feeling of impending doom.
Three beautiful young women are suspected of committing a series of brutal murders. The police make an arrest that leads to one of the most bizarre murder trials of the century. This story is based on actual events and reading this gave me chills. The character, Ashley Patterson is struggling a lot in this book and that made the readers to connect with her.


Washington TV anchorwoman Dana Evans (from Best Laid Plans) suspects the accidents befalling the rich Winthrop family, killing all five members, were murders. Like Chicken Little and the sky falling, she chases clues across the world to unravel an international conspiracy. The inheritance goes to charity, so money is not the motive.
The book is written in such a way that the reader itself is going on the mission with the main character. The book kept me holding till the end and I absolutely loved it!


Emily Inglethorp, the rich mistress of Styles Court manor, is found dead. Poisoned. Hercule Poirot is called upon to investigate the death by Captain Hastings, who is a guest at the manor. Though a retired detective, Poirot steps in to unravel the truth. Who could have killed her? And why? The husband who would inherit the wealth or her stepson? There are others who raise suspicion too. What do the clues add up to? A broken coffee cup, splash of candle grease and the name of the husband on Emily’s dying lips. There is one way to find out and the master sleuth Poirot the Belgian detective who features in thirty-nine Agatha Christie mysteries is sure to find out.
This book is such a short read but they are so many events happening in the story. The plot twist is awesome in the story and it reads like a work of art. Such a quick read!


Europe teeters on the brink of war. Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realize they may be harbouring a murderer among their number.
The 10 strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, an uncouth detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing spinster, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are picked off. Who will survive? And who is the killer? Copies of an ominous nursery rhyme hang in each room, the murders mimicking the awful fates of its ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’.


Kate Blackwell is one of the richest and most powerful women in the world. She is an enigma, a woman surrounded by a thousand unanswered questions. Her father was a diamond prospector who struck it rich beyond his wildest dreams. Her mother was the daughter of a crooked Afrikaner merchant. Her conception was itself an act of hate-filled vengeance.
At the extravagant celebrations of her ninetieth birthday, there are toasts from a Supreme Court Judge and a telegram from the White House. And for Kate there are ghosts, ghosts of absent friends and of enemies. Ghosts from a life of blackmail and murder. I absolutely loved this book! Every chapter never ends with a cliff-hanger, it always ended with a twist. The story is of greed, lust, ambition, manipulation, revenge and big business that threads its way through four generations of a family. One of the best reads in criminal fiction!

Two teens with the same name, running in two different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, culminating in heroic turns-of-heart and the most epic musical ever to grace the high-school stage.

This book is filled with humor and over the top moments which we wished would happen in real life. The best part about this book is, we get to read dual perspectives of both Will Grayson!

Divergent by Veronica Roth:

In sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior’s world, society is divided into five factions – Abnegation (the selfless), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent) – each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue, in the attempt to form a “perfect society.” At the age of sixteen, teens must choose the faction to which they will devote their lives.

On her Choosing Day, Beatrice renames herself, Tris, rejects her family’s group and chooses another faction. After surviving a brutal initiation, she also discovers unrest and growing conflict in their seemingly “perfect society.” To survive and save those they love, they must use their strengths to uncover the truths about their identities, their families, and the order of their society itself. This read was so powerful and the story is so fast-paced with action throughout the book. It is known for focusing on the emotional- struggling part in every human being and for being a book that is impossible to put down.

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green:

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her thoughts.

Even though this book focuses on mental illness but the adventures in this story is so thought-provoking. Best read ever!


“You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.”

Books have the power to change our thoughts. When life takes a different path, these are the ones who bring life back to the path. Every page, every chapter, every paragraph and every word has its own very meaning. I started my reading journey very late. But, today if I look back to my past, there is a huge difference. My perspective towards life has changed. Sometimes when we are not expressive and don’t know much about ourselves, books help us explore ourselves through the characters and help us find who we really are… Even in the darkest times when there is no way out but the content in the books shows a path. Overall, reading made me realize that in every step we take or in every moment there is happiness. Reading changed my thought process and has made me think positive.

Here are some best books to read:

  1. The fault in our stars by john green
  2. Turtles all the way down by john green
  3. The book thief by markus zusak
  4. The poet X by elizabeth acevedo
