I don’t know if I don’t read many thrillers or just don’t classify many things I do read as thrillers. My Goodreads list only shows that I’ve read 26 since I joined in 2007, but considering how many mysteries and spy novels I read, I find that unlikely. I found this definition on-line: “Thrillers are intended to arouse feelings of excitement or suspense, and sometimes fear. The stories generally contain dark or serious themes. Thrillers are sensational, focused on illegal activities, and involve sex and violence.”
I’m going to have to go with Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn as my favorite, at least that I’ve read in recent years. I listened to it on audio at the beginning of 2016 and found it engrossing. I never did get around to watching the movie though.
