Lockdown has become quite tiring and boring, and I've read most of my books over 2 times, so does anyone have any really good book recommendations? I really like crime/ thriller novels!

If you're looking for ones aimed at YA readers, I'd definitely recommend anything by Karen M. McManus. Also The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas and the S.T.A.G.S. series by M.A. Bennett.
edit: I'd also recommend There's Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins; it's a proper fast-paced thriller that's got big horror movie vibes.

Or for ones aimed at an adult audience (but that I've been reading throughout my teens) I'd also recommend the Inspector Chopra series by Vaseem Khan and the D.I. Marnie Rome series by Sarah Hilary.

Also, the Ruby Redfort series is a personal childhood fave about a thirteen-year-old detective working for a secret agency, they're really fun so if you're looking for a lighter read that's still sort of in the genre I'd recommend them too.

I've read the "one of us is lying" series by Karen M. McManus, and I loved it. I definitely will find the others and order them to read soon!

One of Us is Lying
Good Girl's Guide to Murder
Six of Crows

If you're looking for something more classic, maybe try some of Conan Doyle's Sherlock short stories/novels.

Lisa stone is the same author as Cathy glass, who does all of the true life fostering stories. The Cathy glass books are also amazing. But the Lisa stone one books are obviously under a different name. They are thriller type books. I've read two of them so far and they are amazing.

I've known of the Mike pannett books for a while. I found out about him when I be brought 3 books for £5 once from the works and one of his books was one of them. Great books, deffo worth a read.

I'd never heard of the never list myself until a friend let me borrow her copy. It's very good.
