Carolyn’s MY Kind Of Mystery 2017

my-kind-of-mystery-2017

 

Happy “RIEDEL Challenges” day!  February 1st is when my four groups renew.  Here is to a fun year with MY KIND OF MYSTERY 2017!  Do you read them?  Millions do, so I hope you click the banner to join me and tell others!  This is my post to share how I do.  I start with a little planning, then smooth my list out into finished books with their reviews.  This is still the genre I read the most and likely always will but I really do branch out, especially in the years sampling many sorts of Canadian literature and non-fiction.  I enjoy several fantasy series too, which I did not grow up reading.

I’d like to delineate my two favourite kinds, adult ghost fiction / paranormal (which also belong in Ethereal).  Rarest of all:  true mysteries, for adults, based on something mysterious, instead of a plot directly generated by crime.  If you know of these books, please tell me!  One is Lyn Hamilton’s “The Celtic Riddle“.  Below, see my review of Karen White’s “The Girl On Legare Street” to know what I mean.  I search for something like these every time I consider a book.  You might call it “Eclectic Nancy Drew-type plots, for forty year-olds, with ghosts”.  Yes, rare indeed!  It is a joy to find it!  In the quest for My Kind Of Mystery;  this series is perfection!  What are the kinds you love best?
