Must-Read Thrillers Written by Women

Have you read any of the books or authors on the 9 Must-Read Thrillers Written by Women?

I think I have read a book or two from Tana French, but I’ve never heard of these other authors. That’s not to say, however, there aren’t many women authors and characters I’ve enjoyed.

I tried to read The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, a long-standing New York Times bestseller, but I thought it was slow, repetitive and boring and I didn’t finish it. Taylor Stevens is one of my current favorites. Her first book was The Informationist. I have read all five of her books and I know you will LOVE the lead character. She is badass all the way.

In the past I have enjoyed books by other women, like Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling novel, Gone Girl. I also really like the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins.

I have also read most, but not all, of the novels by Gayle Lynds, a thriller writer; medical thrillers by Tess Gerritsen; and legal thrillers by Lisa Scottaline.

You can also add to that list, Patricia Cornwell’s Kate Scarpetta series and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series with a female protagonist written by Steig Larsson.
