Top Ten Tuesday: Frequently Used Words in Thriller Titles

top ten tuesdays
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Oh, this was such a fun prompt! I’m playing loose with the genre here, mostly because mystery, thriller, and crime novels blur the lines for me. All of the covers link to the Goodreads pages of the books if you’re interested in checking any out.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed this list! I’m actually not a big audiobook listener (something I hope to change!), so I can’t vouch for the quality of any of these as audiobooks, but some of my favorite thrillers I’ve read recently have been the UNSUB series by Meg Gardiner, the Stillhouse Lake series by Rachel Caine, The Echo Killing by Christi Daugherty, and the Rockton series by Kelley Armstrong.

  1. This was such an awesome theme that you went with! The list was so fun to go through, I definitely expected to see words such as ‘lies’ and ‘neighbor’ but not ‘perfect’ or ‘good’ so that was a surprise! Lovely post 🙂

    1. Thanks, Taylor! It’s so funny, isn’t it, since most of the “good” and “perfect” characters have nothing “good” or “perfect” about them, especially in thrillers!

  2. Great picks! I like secret, and ooh gone is a good one as well. Wouldn’t have thought of that! Lie is another great one. I’ve been reading a lot of thrillers so I guess I gravitate towards those titles lol.

    1. Thanks, Greg! I’ve definitely noticed I tend to gravitate towards certain titles in the genre, too. Titles with “lies” and “secrets” always catch my eye!
