Top 5 Thriller Books To Be Released On August 2023

You might believe that reading a good thriller should be a pleasurable pastime. But contrary to what you might believe, you are benefiting much from it. You usually have a good sense of what to expect when you open a thriller. A excellent thriller will engulf you, carry you along, and keep you there until the conclusion. It makes you sweat and gets your heart racing. It also makes your lungs thump. I believe it is the same as if you are engaging in a type of workout that your body requires. But before we get started, here are a few upcoming August 2023 releases that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

1. Gone Tonight by Sarah Pekkanen

2. Whalefall by Daniel Kraus

In this immensely humanistic and scientifically true drama about a scuba diver who has been eaten by an eighty-foot, sixty-ton sperm whale and has only one hour to escape before his oxygen runs out. A page-turning, hold-your-breath man-vs-nature adrenaline adventure, but also an engrossing analysis of the perilous bond between parent and kid. It's a heartfelt scream from the depths of that fight. MTV Books is set to release this book on August 8, 2023.

3. None of This Is True by Lisa Jewell
