Lock Every Door is an exceptionally written horror/thriller novel. Riley Sager is very well known for writing thriller books, and this might just be one of the best written books by Riley. The storyline of the book is very interesting since it gives you insight on multiple characters’ perspectives. You not only get to feel what all the characters are feeling, but you also get an insight into their lives and how each character is so vastly different than the other.

The Silent Patient proved to be one of the most thrilling books I have ever read. This book has so far been the only book to ever give me goosebumps. From the moment you turn the very first page till the very last moment of the book, you will always be on the edge of your seat. The main character of the book is so well developed to the point of making you believe that every bit of her is real. When I was reading this book it truly felt like I was captivated in the books’ world.
