I have always enjoyed reading mystery/thriller books over other genres. Though lately I feel like I can't find one that really captures me. What's your favorite mystery book you'd like me to check out?

Hi dance4life, have you ever come across the books by Margaret Yorke, they are excellent, she's an English writer and her books always have a good twist. She's not a famous name but her books have won several mystery daggers awards and I always enjoy them. She's just one of many that I like but definitely one of the best.

Thank you, I tend to lean towards English writers, this sounds very promising.

It's not my favorite but it's a good mystery series; Nancy Drew. Any of those books are great. There is also another book with a lot of mini mysteries called 5 minute mysteries. If not you can try to see what you find at your local book store or library. Good luck finding a book.

I've read all the Nancy Drew books before, but I haven't heard of 5 minute mysteries. Thanks for the suggestion. :-)

Why don't you try to read Agatha Christie novels. Murder on the Orient Express is one of the best mystery books I have ever read from her collection. I am sure that you'd enjoy all of them.
