2016 A-Z Mystery Author Challenge

 

I am still a mystery lover and I know I have several devoted challenge participants, so I will continue with this challenge in 2016.

I just finished The Good Girl by Mary Kubica and am so excited to have found a new psychological mystery author!  I hope to read more by her in the next year.

Who have you discovered this past year and would like to read more of?

Challenge Rules:

  • Read any author within the mystery genre; thriller, noir, suspense, etc. Use last names as the letter (i.e. S= John Sandford)
  • Post your links in the comments below.
  • See if you can complete the whole alphabet!!!
I look forward to reading what you all are reading. 

                           Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

I could never join you, I don't read nearly enough mysteries. But I really do want to read more of them - I just finished my fifth Tana French book and so love them. Maybe I can finally actually succeed at making March into Mystery March!

Michelle: you haven't discovered my community by my third year but you will love it! I'll keep an eye on author's names to see if enough of them are tallying up. My whole quartet is easy: they are really lounges of four themes for hanging out, winning a few prizes, and gathering everything you find in those themes. No limits, no rules. So bring what you read here over to me! :)

Very glad to meet another mystery enthusiast and to invite all of you, Carolyn. https://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-challenges-2016/

Never thought about looking at it alphabetically. I seem to have an oversupply of As (Aird, Allingham), Bs (Burke, Ball, Bonfiglio, Brandret, and Burley), and Cs (Caudwell, Christie, Cook, Cox, Crofts, and Cotterill). Also Ms (MacDonald (R.) and Millar). Plus F, G, H (2), L (two of these too!), S, and T. Ten letters. I am reading a Ngaio Marsh at the moment, which won't help.
