    One of my favourite authors of all time, and someone who has created her own niche.

    I’m thankful not just for Gillian and her great books, but the trend she created within the book world.

    I have discovered so many great female authors writing psychological thrillers due to her popularity such as B.A. Paris, Shari Lapena and so many more.

    Also if you have just read Gone Girl be sure to read the other books. Just as good! (Well maybe not just as good but close to it)
