I've just finished reading between you and me and before that behind closed doors which I really liked. What other books do use recommend? I've also read gone girl that was great! Xx

There's a thread at the moment about Fingersmith. That's got a twist half way through that I really didn't see coming. It had me completely stunned.

Not a straightforward thriller but Fingersmith by Sarah Waters twists and turns like a twisty-turny thing. VG

We Were Liars by E Lockhart. I didn't see the twist coming at all.

I Let You Go. Twistiest book ever.

I'm reading Behind Closed Doors atm and it's so atmospheric with the underlying evil I'm not sure I can finish it... I'm a big wuss.

Is it worth it OP? And am I going to have nightmares along the way?

For gentler but still intriguing twists, I couldn't love Liane Moriarty more. The Husband's Secret was her big bestseller but they're all excellent.

The Good Girl is quite twisty, right at the end, if all falls into place, what really happened.

Ooh I've read a few of hers I loved them! I'd keep going I found it a really good read i was the same as you but I just couldn't put it down I had to see how it all panned out and I'm glad I did.

I enjoyed all those books yoy have mentioned. I've just finished 2 good psychological thrillers. The first Sister Sister b Sue Fortin, some bits a little predictable but I still enjoyed it. The second was Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil which I couldn't put down.

My Sisters Bones by Nuala Ellwood, I thought it was bloody brilliant! It kept me hooked the whole way through and I think I went through every emotion when reading it.

We are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler has a great twist.

Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton

The Burning Air by Erin Kelly - I'm pretty good at spotting twists but this one really made me gasp....

Little Face by Sophie Hannah or any of her books really. Very twisty
