I read just about almost anything, but Mystery has been my favorite genre since my Elementary days. For some unknown reason, they’re just so addictive and I can’t stop myself from picking random mystery books from the library/bookstore. I really like mysteries since they make me think and they always have unpredictable twists and turns. My love affair with mysteries began when I was a child since I grew up reading Nancy Drew, The Bobbsey Twins, Boxcar Children, Sherlock Holmes, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Hardy Boys. It has been a routine for me to read at least a mystery book a week and I couldn't really imagine how boring my week would be without mysteries.
My all time favorite mystery writers would of course include Carolyn Keene, Laura Lee Hope, Franklin W. Dixon, Gertrude Chandler Warner, Lemony Snicket, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but some of my favorite modern authors are James Patterson, Anthony Horowitz, and the multiple authors of The 39 Clues.
What about you? What genre do you prefer to read and what books under that genre would you highly recommend?
