Girl Behind the Blog: Mystery Books

Posted February 26th, 2014 by in Uncategorized / 3 comments


Recently I thought about all of the genres that I already read and I came to the conclusion that I don’t really read that many mystery books. The reason this came to my attention was the fact that Johnny’s mom reads a ton of mystery books and she loves them and is always telling me about them. I know there are different reading tastes for every reader out there and as a reader I don’t have to love every genre so why mystery?

I figured I like all of those suspense/crime shows or movies on tv these days and if I liked those then why wouldn’t I like the book version of those shows/movies.

I decided to just jump into the mystery genre and for the first time I actually went over to the mystery sections of my local bookstores in order to see what I could find there. I found some interesting sounding storylines and I decided to go with these books for now. Plus I have to give James Patterson a try because Johnny’s mom loves his books even though he does a lot of his books through other authors and just tacks his name on to the book so it sells in my opinion.

Here are some of the books I have picked up so far, let me know if I’m missing out on a great mystery series that you have read and loved!

1st to Die (Women's Murder Club, #1)
Triptych (Will Trent, #1)

Naked in Death (In Death, #1)

Everywhere That Mary Went (Rosato & Associates, #1)

Eve (Eve, Quinn and Bonnie #1)

The Apprentice (Rizzoli & Isles, #2)

    I read Naked in Death last year. I enjoyed it. Robb/Roberts does a great job having a strong mystery in addition to some romance. 🙂

    I used to gobble up the Steve Berry books. They are similar to Dan Brown. I’d also occasionally munch on a Carl Haissen book. They are zany & usually fall off at the end, but lots of laughs.

    I have Triptych in Mt. Read Me. I listened to Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter and really enjoyed it so I imagine she’s a good author. I also have The Apprentice and Naked in Death to read as well….. I really need to stop buying books!

    I HAVE read 1st to Die and I enjoyed the first eight or nine books in the series but the books have kind of gotten tot he point that I read them to keep current with the series not because I truly enjoy them. I will say that they are quick reads so it isn’t a huge time investment for me. I hope you enjoy your mystery books! It is a fun genre.
