Welcome to Bookish Community. Each month, I’ll feature a different guest blogger. The bookish community is incredibly welcoming and passionate and such a great place to be. Enjoy this opportunity to get to know more amazing book lovers.
This month’s guest blogger is Becca from The Bookkeeper’s Apprentice.
My name is Becca, and I love Agatha Christie. I also love psychological thrillers and suspense. So when Trisha was so kind as to ask me to have a guest post on her blog, I decided to combine my two loves.
If you loved Gone Girl, you should read The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
These are both books where it is best going into them knowing as little as possible. So all I will say is that both books do an excellent job of turning everything you thought you knew on its head—and that when you reach the end of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd you will immediately recognize the now-popular trope that Dame Christie so brilliantly originated and Gillian Flynn continued.
If you loved The Girl on the Train, you should read Murder on the Orient Express.
Yes, they both have trains as a central crucial setting. But both books are also about feeling trapped, being haunted by tragic events from the past, hiding the truth behind your identity, and being determined to see something through, no matter how much it may hurt.
If you loved In a Dark, Dark Wood you should read And Then There Were None
Both these books take place in creepy, isolated settings, with a group of people thrown together for a purpose that may or may not be true. Not everyone is who they say they are, and events from the past come back to haunt the present.
If you loved Luckiest Girl Alive, you should read Sad Cypress.
Not only do the covers look eerily similar, but both feature a tragic female heroine judged by society and haunted by a mysterious event from their past.
If you loved Dark Places, you should read Elephants Can Remember.
Both these books center around a female protagonist who works with others to try to determine if the person accused of killing her parents was truly guilty.
I hope you find some new reads from this! Do you have any Agatha Christies, or psychological thrillers, you would particularly recommend!
Thanks again to Trisha for having me on her blog!
What do you think of these matches? Any other recommendations?
