I like thrillers. I don't know when I started liking them or what pushed me in to the genre but I've kind of become obsessed with the thrill of the chase and all the danger and action. I like my thrillers YA, Adult, New Adult. I will take them wherever I can get them, so I thought for this weeks top 10 Tuesday I would recommend books for people looking to add that extra thrill to their lives.
*Some books on the list are genuine thrillers and others just gave me a thrill, fair warning.
Smart teens working for the FBI hunting serial killers. I think so! Then one of those killers targets one of their own, even better! The criminal minds of the YA thriller genre.

All of the Robert Langdon books are awesome thrillers but this one is my favorite.

10 Pawn by Aimee Carter
I just finished this one and while it was a dystopian story it was also very much thriller with political intrigue, backstabbing, and murders!
