  1. This book website “fetching lobon only” (Google it) is just amazing since it is not only user-friendly but also an outstanding service provider of countless reading materials like books and documents. I`m very happy for finding this website and you should try it as well. If you are a reading enthusiast, then don`t miss out accessing this website. What ever you need with regards to books and reading materials is available here.

  2. I 100% agree about Agatha Christie always being reliable. I picked up Murder on the Orient Express after a disappointing read last month, and it was the perfect palette cleanser. I've been saying that I want to read Tana French for ages now (and it's still true)!

  3. Thanks for the recommendations Rincey. I've been on a big mystery kick lately so this video comes at the perfect time. I'm currently reading In the Woods by Tana French and loving it so far! I also need to try to some Christie. I'm planning to start with And Then There Were None since it is one of her most famous stories.

  4. I love Flavia de Luce mystery series. It's about an 11 year old girl who solves crimes and also happens to be a genius. Fun mystery series perfect for summer.

  5. I've recently enjoyed child 44 by Tom Rob Smith, a mystery / thriller set in soviet Russia which I can see being a good beach read

  6. Rincey, who published the Christie you held up?  Cozy mysteries are my guilty pleasure.  Have you tried Library Lover's Mysteries by Jenn McKinlay, The Bookman Series by John Dunning, Bibliophile Mysteries by Kate Carlisle, Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs, or Booktown Mysteries by Lorna Barrett?  I also really enjoy Decker/Lazarus Mysteries by Faye Kellerman, Inspector Shan Mysteries by Eliot Pattison, Father Blackie Ryan Mysteries by Andrew Greeley, and Nuala Anne McGrail Mysteries by Andrew Greeley.

  7. One of my favorite mystery series that makes a great summer/beach read is "The Cat Who" series by Lilian Jackson Braun.  Typically more lighthearted, there are definitely some darker ones as well. They're a series and do take place in chronological order, but it's not at all necessary to read them that way. You can just pick up any of them and dive right in.  They're typically more lighthearted, although there are definitely some darker ones as well. And who doesn't love it when cats solve murders?
