I’ve always been a bit of a bookworm, and usually read at least one book a month. But during the summer I step it up a gear and get through stacks of book. By books I mean thriller books. During the year I spend lots of time reading fashion and history books for my University work so during summer it’s all about my favourite genre.
With the Girl on the Train selling 6.5 million copies worldwide, the thriller’s never been bigger.
Here are the 5 more reason to sleep with your light on
