Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Ten Books To Read If You Are In The Mood For a YA Thriller

*in no particular order


1. THE LAST GOOD DAY OF THE YEAR by Jessica Warman--I won this last year and still need to read it but sounds creepy awesome!
2. THE DEVIL YOU KNOW by Trish Doller--another I still need to read but read a lot of good reviews on it! I love a good mystery!
3. AFTER THE WOODS by Kim Savage--this is on my wishlist and one I would really like to read at some point! Been hearing a lot of good things about it too!


4. DON'T LOOK BACK by Jennifer L. Armentrout--naturally, a JLA book makes the list! ;)
5. MADE FOR YOU by Melissa Marr--one that was creepy good!! Loved this one!
6. THE BODY FINDER by Kimberly Derting--this one is actually a series!! There's 4 books and pretty much all of them were awesome and creepy thrilling!!

7. 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil--this one's a thriller in a sense! Plus there's a Sci-Fi twist! But it was thrilling what with the doppelganger thrown in and how the main heroine is trapped in another life and her "evil" twin won't allow her to come back to her world!
8. DOOMED by Tracy Deebs--a "mild" sort of thriller because the world has been thrown into chaos without technology and it's up to one girl to solve the puzzles the hacker left her. So it's mild in a sense, but it was thrilling in a way because it terrified me to think how easily some super genius could make this a reality!
9. THE RULES by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie--my favorite writing duo's first thriller! Still unknown if this will be a series or not, and I'm hoping it does because I loved it!!

10. TEN by Gretchen McNeil--and yes, I saved this for #10 for the obvious reason! LOL! I really liked this one, but I know it's got a ton of mixed reviews. I thought it to be pretty thrilling though!!


  1. Oh man, I've had Between the Devil and the Deep Blue on my Kindle for forever. But that quote is definitely intriguing ;) I don't read many thrillers but The Body Finder and Don't Look Back are definitely some of my favourites. Thanks for sharing, Jessica!

  5. I loved the Body Finder series. I'm not a big thriller reader though. Don't Look Back has always looked good.. I need to pick it up. Thanks for some great picks!

  6. I'm going to have to add a bunch of these to my TBR. I already have After the Woods on my list and I own Don't Look Back (haven't read it yet!), but the rest sound like I'd probably love them.

  7. You've got my attention,too! My YA teaser comes from Where You'll Find Me by Natasha Friend. Happy reading!

  8. Don't look back, The Body Finder and Made for You were such good thrillers, you make me want to reread them. I haven't read 3:59 or Ten yet.

  9. What a list. I think I probably need to add most of them to my wishlist. I think I own Ten already on my Kindle though.

  10. I haven't read any of these, but I do plan to read Don't Look Back, The Body Finder, and Doomed!

    Check out my TTT

  11. That teaser made me want to re-read that book! I don't really read thrillers, but I did love Don't Look Back and The Body Finder!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day!

  12. I like that teaser -- and it's a new to me book too.

  13. Great list! I LOVE a good thriller. I'm glad to see After the Woods on here, I've just ordered that and I can't wait to read it. :D

  14. Got my attention too. :-) Some great looking books.

    Great tease choice.
