Some are thrillers while others are crime dramas. Whatever your personal taste, you have a high chance of being swept off your feet by one of the following titles. Check them out below.

One More Day by Kelly Simmons

One More Day is one of the fascinating thrillers to look for in 2016, as it deals with the mysterious disappearing of a child from the backseat of his mother's car. Carrie Morgan has to deal with the disappearance of her son as best as she can, only to discover that several months after having vanished, he's come back home. The return lasts for just twenty-four hours, leaving Carrie feeling baffled and shattered to the bone. Once a week has gone by, Carrie has faced several events that all involve a grim secret. She eventually has to choose between finding out about what happened to her son and revealing certain details of her past.

Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee
Outrun the Moon is set at the beginning of the 20th century in San Francisco, where a fifteen-year-old Mercy Wong struggles to find her way out of poverty. She's determined to leave Chinatown and start living the good life, especially since she has recently been accepted to a high-class School for Girls. Getting in might be easy, but staying in is difficult.
The book deals with the social challenges of the first part of the 20th century in the United States and even features a historic earthquake that rocks San Francisco and the nearby area.
