Top Ten Tuesday: Top Books You'll Love if you Like Criminal Minds!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the BookishEach week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.   

This week's topic is:
 Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books If You Like X tv show/movie/comic/play etc. 
*These are in no particular order!

I'm pretty sure I've said a dozen times that I LOVE true crime shows that show the person went crazy (like Snapped) and how they caught them and fictional cop tv shows as well. It may seem a little morbid, but I like to use my sleuth skills and see if I can come up with the right killer before the cops do. So with that being said, I'm obviously going to go with thrillers and books that remind me of my favorite show ever:

Criminal Minds (2005) Poster

1. Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I had a theory about this one, but I just KNEW it wasn't true. Too far fetched. But oh no, Armentrout went THERE. Don't be afraid to think the unimaginable when you try guessing this one!

2. Wicked Games by Sean Olin: This one isn't out yet, but I've read it and I'll just say this chick was crazy. It started out as depression, but got wayyyyyyyyy more intense. Trust me, things happen that will get your heart racing.

3. No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale: The chick in this one may be like super weird, but there is something really weird also going on in her town. A place that hasn't seen a killer in years has finally had one and the people that thought they knew everyone is starting to look at everyone different....

4. The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: I read this one because on the synopsis it actually said for those who like Criminal Minds lol It's a bunch of unusual teens with different types of talents that are used to help close unsolved homicides. Things start to get crazy when one of their own is targeted...

5. Frigid by J. Lynn: Yes there is a very hot guy in this one, but there is also a mystery going on. There is a crazy stalker going around and he is CRAZY. I figured out who he was, but it's still worth the read! 

6. Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff: I wasn't a huge fan of this thriller because it read more like a contemp, but the mystery part was still good. I was also able to figure out who the killer was in this one so I wasn't actually very happy with it.

7. Ten by Greetchen McNeil: I also figured out who the killer was in this one, but OMG the reading until I got there basically had me like 0_0 I was so into this book it gave me nightmares. 

8. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga: Another book that I loved despite finding out who the killer was. It scared me really good so I was able to still enjoy it. I mean, who wouldn't be creeped out by a killer taking someone's eyes???

9. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: There is so much weird going on in this book it will leave you very confused lol I can't lie, I definitely was, but at the same time I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to see what happens in the final book! 

10. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting: Despite the amazing love story that this is, I fell in love with this book for a different reason. I did find out who the killer was, but the writing in this one was amazing.

  2. What a great list! Mara Dyer is one of my all time favorite series! I love how it confuses the reader at every stage and keeps it exciting! I have Don't Look Back on my kindle and I wasn't sure if I'll love it [JLA books have been a disappointment lately :( ], but you have made me a bit curious about *that* secret.
    Thanks for visiting :)
