Nothing can beat the pleasure of curling up in a cozy place,away from all worldly trouble and reading a good book.
Although reading a good book is itself a pleasurable thing, be it any place or time of the day.
For someone who loves reading, their to-read list ever increasing.
Every book that seems good enough becomes a part of the list.
Then, there are recommendations from fellow book lovers.
All favourite author's new releases are in the list too.
Then there are some long desired classics to add up to the list.
Finally, some books have created such an impact that they need to be re-read and that piles up too.
Indeed, book lovers know that there can't be enough time ever to read.
Also, it's a pleasure to know what other people are reading. That is why I simply love the goodreads.com and other related sites.
So, I decided to share my 'to-read' list here too.
Do let me know what do you think about it and if you have read any of these. Or maybe they are a part of your to-read list too.

Now coming to my favourite genre, which is thriller.
If I could I will add all thrillers ever written to my to-read list and make best efforts to
read them before I die.
But since a list needs to be comprehensive and not always exhaustive, I will just add some of the very best apart from those I have read.
These are like 'Absolute must reads' in the thriller genre and A lot of study of different lists, reviews and recommendations have gone into creating this list of fantastico fifteen books.
