My Kind of Mystery 2019


So as I literally just started blogging again after A LOT of years, I missed signing up for a crapload of reading-related challenges that popped up on the blogosphere for 2019. And honestly, I am not very good at keeping up with most challenges anyway — due to their stringent timetables, rules, qualifications, etc. So when I happened to discover this challenge – “My Kind of Mystery” hosted at Riedel Fascination – I knew I had to join the fun. Even if I’m a few months behind. Not only do I read mystery after mystery after mystery, I really love the idea that pretty much anything goes here. There are no rigid posting rules. You just gotta read some books. Which is more than fine by me!! I love to read. It’s my life, as you’ll soon see.

Anyway, for the rest of the year I have a lot of books in mind I want to read. I can’t begin to name them all but here are some I’m really drawn to:

The Kate Waters series by Fiona Barton
Digital Fortress by Dan Brown
The 39 Steps by John Buchan
Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine
Parker Pyne Investigates by Agatha Christie
Dead Wrong by Leighann Dobbs
Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris
Thin Air by Robert B. Parker
The House Next Door by James Patterson
The Murder House by James Patterson
Red Alert by James Patterson
The Harriet Blue series by James Patterson
The Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson
Mistletoe Murder by Leslie Meier
Maycroft series by Lisa B. Thomas
The Christie Curse by Victoria Abbott
Pizza Lovers series by Chris Cavender


One thought on “My Kind of Mystery 2019

  1. Linley, I am happy you are here! What is exciting is that you don’t know me from WordPress or Goodreads: you discovered one of my four reading themes this year! I believe you are a confirmation that I need to get going and writing the update and activity posts I have had on my mind.

    I love your list. I read mysteries galore too but what fun, to see many authors or books I have never heard of. You won’t be disappointed with “The Christie Curse”, the one I have already read. See my non-spoiler review about why that novel by a Canadian Mom & Daughter is awesome, even for folks normally tired of the “cozy” sub-genre. “Standard mystery” is what I love: not light but not violent but as you wrote so well to describe to your readers: anything goes!

    I am touched by your enthusiastic, excellent introduction of me. That is right: number limits and rigidity is silly. I do get called the hostess perfect for “people who don’t normally stick to challenges” or “who are tired of rules”! This is your place to add whatever it is that you do read and to play fun games and riddles. If your list fits my other three themes, well, you know how the linkies work. I am very pleased to meet you! Carolyn.
