We are both HUGE mystery lovers and she created this event to find more of you mystery lovers out there and celebrate all things mysterious, suspenseful, horrific and thrilling!
To begin the week, check out the Questionnaire below, part of the BLOG HOP and find out a bit more about what I love about the mystery genre.
Stay tuned for more fun all this week.
The Thrill Ride Questionnaire
What is your favourite genre out of Thriller, Mystery, Suspense and Horror? Why?
I enjoy thrillers the most. I enjoy when ordinary folks are put in extraordinary situations.
I like to read the fast paced adventures of people racing against time,
trying to figure it all out.
Literary Thrillers and Suspense would be a close second. I love Tana French and the world she creates in her books.
But really, I love it all. I am just a fan of all things mystery!
Who are your top 3 authors in those genres?
Joy Fielding, Harlan Coben, Tana French
Tell us who your favourite male and female authors are in the genre?
Joy Fielding and Harlan Coben definitely!

Maybe you should read it again now.
