Have you ever read a book that you couldn't stop thinking about? One that you just HAVE to keep reading (even though it's the middle of the night)? That, dear reader, is a thriller.

Thrillers are the enigmatic adrenaline rush titles of the fiction world. They get your heart and mind racing, twist and turn and at the very end smack you in the face with a completely unexpected ending. This week we are celebrating all thriller titles- be they psychological, crime, horror, mystery, legal or even romance.

Be warned: you may become addicted.
