Top 10 Tuesday — Mysteries I Still Haven’t Read

17 May

It is not a mystery why I have not read the books on my list yet. I cannot resist a shiny new book, even if I have a stack of others ahead of it. I refuse to believe that I have more books than time, though, so I continue to buy more and more. One day cannot get here fast enough. 😉 The books that I have chosen to confess are all mysteries — my very favorite genre. They at least have a fighting chance of being read. My list contains classic mysteries, cozy mysteries, historical mysteries — I read them all. And in the spirit of honesty, this list is just the tip of the iceberg. Let me know if you have read any. I need some motivation!

    Great way to narrow the topic down. I have not read nor heard of any of these! I hope you do enjoy them when you get to them.

    I like the Flavia de Luce series. Those are fun books to read.

      It looked fun. That’s why it called out to me from the bookstore. 😉

    these all look really good but the Jane & The Twelve Days of Christmas is definitely on my TBR list!

    The Thin Man – i had forgotten it was a book before it was a movie.

    I also like the look of The Cat’s Pajamas and The Long Goodbye.

    Great list!

      My husband listened to The Thin Man on audio. I heard a bit of it. May be a bit dated, if you know what I mean.

    I didn‘t include Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler on my list, but I too have had their books on my shelves for years! My mom and grandma got me into Bogie films when I was younger, and ever since I‘ve wanted to read them.

    A friend of mine has read all of the Alan Bradley books and LOVES them.

    I hope you enjoy these when you read them!

    I love mysteries, too, although I haven’t read any of these. I’ve never read anything by Highsmith, but I definitely need to get to STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. It sounds intriguing.

    Happy TTT!

      That’s a good one. I did manage to read it! The first Ripley book was good too.
