10 Books to Read if You Loved Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train

So you loved Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. You must be a big fan of “toxic marriage” fiction, psychological thrillers, and/or unreliable narrators. The combination is perfection. Unreliable narrators have been popular since Catcher in the Rye and books like American Psycho showed authors the power an unreliable narrator can have on the reader and the possibilities it gives them. Gone Girl used that to its advantage and gave you not one, but two characters with a flimsy track record. A lot of people want to know what to read after that book but I don’t have to tell you that if you enjoyed Gone Girl, you should read The Girl on the Train. It’s still the hot novel and about to be released as a movie with Emily Blunt as the titular character. A lot of people who like these books are also fans of bait-and-switch mysteries.

So if any of these genres get you hot and bothered, check out the ones, below. My personal favorite? In a Dark, Dark Wood.
