Mystery Mondays

Over the past few weeks, I've read quite a few mysteries -- mainly because of Book Club Girl's Mad for Maisie Readalong -- and I've found that I'm really enjoying them. I used to read all types of mysteries prior to my blogging days, but for some reason, it seems like I've almost forgotten about these books. While I do read a fair amount of books each year, I seem to be reading less and less mysteries in favor of other genres.

So you might ask where am I going with this post? Well, I decided that I've had so much fun reading mysteries lately that I want to continue to do so. While I could set an unofficial blogging goal to "read more mysteries", I wanted to do something a little more exciting. And then it came to me... I could do "Mystery Mondays" posts. Basically, I thought it might be fun to share a weekly review for a mystery book every Monday. It could be a traditional mystery, a suspense or thriller, or even a cozy.

Now, I realize that I'm setting my sights pretty high by attempting to write a weekly review. And I am almost certain that I won't succeed all of the time. But either way, expect to see a lot more reviews of mystery books on this blog!

Come back tomorrow for my first installment of Mystery Mondays -- my review of LEARNING TO SWIM by Sara J. Henry.

Oh, this should be a lot of fun! I'm looking forward to your review of Learning to Swim. Two of the members of my book club read and both of them liked it.

I've been reading so many mysteries lately I think I could use a button for days I *don't* have a mystery!

This will be really cool, I think! Congratulations on the greta idea!

Love the idea! Even the books that aren't officially "mysteries" often have mysteries in them. Which is great...keeps your mind sharp.
