Lately, I've been reading mysteries. Never have I been the thriller type but having been a bit sick of my usual reads filled with heartbreak and/or drama and/or babies (I swear I'm semi educated despite my interest in less than scholarly reads) -- I decided to switch to a new genre.

Now let me make this clear, if you see me reading a book that is even a tiny bit science fictiony mystery thriller--you are seeing a girl that looks like me but is most certainly not me. I don't do fantasy. Never saw Lord of The Rings, never read Harry Potter and don't even get me started on the Twilight series. I just don't do it. My feet are waaaayyy to firmly planted in reality and my imagination comes to a dead stop when an alien enters the picture. Seriously, ALIENS?!

Anyway, my new fond love for more drama based mysteries with a bit of a story behind them and for good measure, throw in a little tiny love story amongst the detectives started with this book:

In The Woods by Tana French (via here)

I loved it. Read it--the next one is called The Likeness and its just as good. BUT, I need another mystery to get attached to. Help?

  1. If you like the TV series Bones, check out Kathy Reich's books. I've read all but the last, and they're pretty quick reads.
