Hey hey my Mystery Madness Lovers! I hope that you are having an AMAZING Friday! I know that I am. I am super excited to get home, get into comfy clothes, and get ready for a long night of drinking tea and reading! I am almost finished reading Slayed on The Slopes By: Kate Dyer-Seeley (aka Ellie Alexander).
With March Mystery Madness slowly sneaking up on us, I can’t believe March 1st is next week, I have picked SIX books to go with the six challenge words. Now if you don’t remember the descriptions of the challenges you can click here for the blog post that I put out. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
For new, I am super excited to try Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen Mystery Series! You know me! Anything with food, baking, and a little mystery I am in love with. I have been suggested this series over and over again. I am super happy that I have picked it up to read for the challenge New. It is actually new to me in TWO ways. A new author and a new series! Bam! Look at me go!!! *pats myself on the back*
For the borrowed Challenge I am super excited to be picking up the latest in the Port Danby series! I have fallen in love with the town of Port Danby and with Pink’s flower shop and everyone in the town. I am super excited for Tulips and Trouble to come out on March 18th! You have to go pre-order it here!
It is such a fun and quick read. I am using it as my borrow challenges because I will be renting or borrowing it from Kindle Unlimited.
The next book that I am hoping to read is Miss Seeton Paints The Town By: Hamilton Crane. I actually grabbed quite a few from this series at my local used bookstore Gardner’s.
I quickly fell in love with Miss. Seeton on the cover. Seriously, she seems like my kind of woman. She looks feisty, daring, and like she isn’t going to take crap from no one.
The reason that this falls under Foreign is due to the fact that it is based in Scotland!
Which, if you haven’t ever been to Scotland, I highly recommend it!
This was the challenge that I was most worried about. As you know, I mostly read Cozy Mysteries, Fluffy Mysteries, where most things end on a happy part. A least for the most part.
Of course people die, because there wouldn’t be a book without a death, but still, it is light.
I am aiming to reading a little outside of my comfort zone for this challenge though. I got this book in my Book of The Month club order. It is supposed to be a creepy thriller, suspense, mystery. It takes place at a girl’s boarding school. It also goes back and forth between the 1950s and present day. I think that’s pretty cool. I am eager to read it.
The next challenge is Shelf. I took this to mean that I was going to Shop My Own Shelf. Which I did. I have had quite a few book hauls recently (It’s a judgy-free zone guys!), and I know for a fact that there are a ton of books that I am needed to read. Tons of series that I have to catch up on. You know the drill.
So I am super excited to read Title Wave. It is the next book in the Booktown Mystery series that I have fallen in love with over the years. I am eagerly awaiting on finding out what happened to Tricia’s shop Haven’t Got A Clue. It’s going to be so much fun!
And last but certainly not least is the challenge of Historical. I have been meaning to read as many Agatha Christie novels as I can. She is what I and many consider to be the Mother of the Cozy Mystery sub-genre. I have read And Then There Were None, Murder on The Orient Express, and some short stories.
I have even watched a lot of Miss. Marple episodes on Netflix and everything. I figured it was time for me to give A Miss Marple Mystery a shot.
What is awesome, is during Spring Break Aaron and I will actually be on a cruise. So, I am most definitely saving this for when we are on the boat! I think that it will be a blast to read. I’ll really feel like I am in the moment. You know?
So, that is the end of this blog on my March Mystery Madness TBR. Are you planning on reading anything for this readathon? If you are let me know down below. Make sure to follow our twitter and until next time, Happy Reading!
