A to Z April - M: Mysteries





Today I'm going to talk about another genre of books, mysteries.  They are not my top type of books, but I do enjoy a good one.  I'm finding more YA ones that I'm even starting to become more interested in mysteries.  I'll share my top 5 mystery books/series below.


1. 

This is probably my favorite series, although the latest one is still sitting on my TBR shelf.  Must get to that!  The main character Goldy Bear is a caterer, and of course seems to come across murders all the time by accident.  I just love the characters, they're pretty funny/realistic seeming to me.  What is really neat is all the recipes that are shared, and though they sound delicious, I'm too lazy to possibly ever make them. But if you're a chef, and you like mysteries, you should definitely give these books a try.

Now this is a brand new, hot off the presses title.  It actually comes out today!  It is my first book by this author, and I was extremely impressed with it.  It is a YA mystery title, but a great one!

3.  
  

This is another YA mystery that is newer.  It is what I'd call a medical mystery.  I really enjoyed it.  I know that the author writes adult medical mystery/thrillers as well.

4.  
 
 
Another author that does great YA mystery.  This one is supposed to be based on the classic story Ten Little Indians by Agatha Christie.

5. 

Now this is one that could be considered maybe more of a romance, but it has a bit of a mystery to it so I'm going to list it.  While it is an older book, not YA really, it is one that is a favorite of mine.  As I said before, I'm not really a mystery fan, so I had a little trouble coming up with 5 top books for sure, and I didn't want to go through my whole list of all I've read on Goodreads, so I decided to list this last.

So, are you a big mystery fan?  And if you have time, I'd love for you to go back to my J post and help me think of some questions to ask some authors I'll be meeting next month.

  1. I heard so much about Don't Look Back also. Looking forward to reading that. When I was younger, I loved mysteries so much, and now, it's more like YA for me. :) Great post!

  2. I like mysteries, although lately I've been gravitating towards historical mysteries. Having said that, I read Ten recently and really liked it- it was fun.

  4. Mysteries have always been my thing. I love trying to solve the puzzle way before the end. I have the complete collections of Sherlock and Agatha, and I love to watch them as the come out from time to time. I love Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, But Jeremy Brett was the best I think. Poirot is my fav when it comes to Agatha's books. I love a great mystery

    1. I do like it when it keeps me guessing, but not in a way that I can't figure anything out or is too boring. That's what I liked about the ones I've listed above. Thanks for visiting!

  5. Of course I have time to drop by! Mysteries have never sparked much of a fancy for me, but I now know where to go if I am interested! TEN looks pretty interesting, I might have to check that one out sooner than later.
