Welcome to the Thriller, Suspense and Horror page of the “Map of Genres” series. If you are unfamiliar with the series, you can read the introduction post here.

I have currently combined these three (two?) genres because I don’t have as many books in these categories yet. I anticipate being able to separate these into their own lists later this year, as I read more in these categories in the fall. I don’t read a lot of Horror, since there is only a certain level of horror that I can handle and still enjoy. I am always looking for suggestions in that category.

If you have suggestions of Thriller, Suspense or Horror books I should read, I would love to hear them in the comments!
