Do you love a good mystery? If so, this Web site is for you! (Well, and me!) Here you will find a dedicated resource to books that are in the mystery genre. That includes thrillers, spy stories and suspense.
I absolutely love that, on the main page, they explain how to get around by using the alphabetical index. And since they explained it so well, I’m going to skip on over to the side menu for now.
What’s New – Here you will find what has been recently added to the site. I was pretty amazed at how thorough the information is on what they’ve added here. I give them a thumbs up here!
Award Winners – Here you can choose by award type to browse authors who have won the awards for 2007. This is a great way to find an awesome book to read.
Location Index – This section allows you to find a series by their character’s home base. For example, I want to read books where the character is from or in Ohio, so I chose the United States, then Ohio. I was presented with a list of characters whom either come from Ohio or their story takes place there.
Job Index – This is the same idea as the Location Index. However, you’re searching by the character’s job. I was in awe when I saw how many jobs were listed. This is certainly an interesting way to pick a book to read.
Historical Index – This section has divided author and character indexes up by historical period. The time periods range from Ancient to the 1980s.
Read-Alikes – I have to tell you, I am a fan of this method of finding new books to read. Here you will find Author Read-Alikes, which is the “if you like this author, you may like this other author” formula. It’s my favorite way to find new books! You also have the option of “if you like this type of book, you may like this author” with the Category Read-Alikes. What excellent ways to find books!
Magazines – Here you will find some links to mystery magazines.
FAQ – Here you will see a listing of frequently asked questions. You can find information on who maintains the site, who started it and why, as well as, answers to questions about the site.
I hope you all can find a good book to read by using this site. I’m off to the library with a list of books to find. Happy reading!
