We are in the month of October! I decided that instead of sharing some October releases that I’m anticipating, I’d share some murder-mysteries that I own and really want to read soon.
In the Hall with the Knife & In the Study with the Wrench by Diana Peterfreund
These two books are apart of a series based off of the board game Clue! I played this game so much growing up so I’m pumped to be able to read books based on it.
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
Everyone says Christie is a murder-mystery legend so I am so excited to finally read one of her books. This one centers around a murder that happened on a train…I bet you couldn’t tell that from the title.
Sadie by Courtney Summers
I’ve heard so much about this book, but haven’t read it yet. This one is about a girl on a mission to find and bring justice to her sister’s killer. It sounds both haunting and heavy and I’m here for it.
People Like Us by Dana Mele
A prep school murder! If you can’t tell by some of my recent reads (They Wish They Were Us, Truly Devious, etc.), I’m obsessed with prep/private school murder-mysteries. I’m happy to finally add this one to the list!
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
I love a good closed-case murder and, apparently, so does the rest of the YA fan base. This is another I’ve heard soooo much about. I’m curious to see how this book will go since it’s apart of a series.
This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher
Love a book with the word “kill” or “murder” in it. It’s an automatic add for me. Plus, this one has a group of people where anyone could be a suspect. Can you see me jumping in delight?
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus
I would be remise if I didn’t add a McManus mystery on here. Although the synopsis doesn’t mention anything about a murder, I wouldn’t be surprised if one pops up. Either way, this book is bound to be a great mystery for the records.
Well, folks. I believe those are all the murder-mysteries that I own, but haven’t yet read. October is the perfect month to read these creepy mysteries (although I enjoy them year-round). Comment below some of your favorite murder-mysteries.
