Books that you can’t put down

A good book for me is one that keeps me engaged from the first page. One that you just can’t put down. One in which you just want to read it all at once and you read it again and again to consume it all. These are some of the best thrillers that I have read. So, let’s dive into this list of the books you can’t put down in 2020. 

1- The woman in the window

So, this is the kind of book that you can read in one sitting. No, it’s not a 200-page novel. It is so interesting that once you get a hang of the story you will want to know what happens next and how it ends.

Plot: Anna has a slow-paced life after a death in the family. She sits by her window and watches the world pace, until a new family comes to stay in her neighbourhood. She watches them all day. And one day she witnesses something she shouldn’t have. What happens next? Was what she saw even true?

2- Behind closed doors

Sometimes, the perfect marriage is the perfect lie. I really loved this book. I was turning pages so fast. This is the kind of book that keeps you hooked throughout. The whole narration makes you think that there is something wrong, but what is it? It is wonderfully thrilling and gripping until the end. 

Plot – Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has the looks and the wealth, she has the charm and the elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’d like to get to know Grace better. But it’s difficult because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

3- The Breakdown

I’m up writing this post at 1am because of this book. Once I started reading it, it was impossible to put down. And I just finished reading it. It is safe to say anything this author ever writes I am going to read it for sure.


Plot- So, the story starts with a woman driving through the woods even after her husband told her not to. She sees something, which she can never forget. Even with dementia, when she forgets everything around her, she doesn’t forget that night. Her health conditions make her think that someone is going to assassinate her. 

I have written so less about it because a single detail could end the fun of reading and discovering it, so just grab a copy and read it.

4- Before her eyes

The captivating writing, the turns in the story and that adrenaline rush at the end of stories are somethings that words can’t explain.

Plot – She can’t see the killer
But the killer can see her
Naomi, a blind woman who is trying to take her life, stumbles on a dead body and is frightened by a
killer. When she goes to the police she is left in a perplexing situation where she is framed for a crime
she has not committed. Read how everyone is under the radar for murder.
I just loved the character of Marcus ❤
Great plot.
Great characters.
Great ending.

5- Anything for her

Plot- Louise Leighton’s life has been falling apart ever since that night. Now, a year later, her husband is

having an affair with her sister. She is going to lose everything she owns. Louise leaves the marital home
for the vacation cottage to clear her mind and strange things start happening. When Brooke shows up
on her doorsteps because she needs her mother’s comfort, Louise urges her to go back home to her
father and younger brother. A mistake she should have never made. Brooke never leaves the train
station and goes missing. But has she been closer than expected all along? Someone has been watching
Louise and Brooke, leaving dead birds and bloodied gloves just for them. Is it simply to mess with their
minds or is it much more sinister than that?
