  1. Hmm, my favorite mystery...I'm terrible with these kinds of questions because I never have one favorite. So let's go with an old standby: Sherlock Holmes. Anything of the novels or short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He's one of my favorite fictional characters ever.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. My favorite mystery that I read this season was The Mischief of the Mistletoe. It was quirky, romantic and witty. I love the Pink Carnation series and I think this was my favorite thus far...

  3. My favorite mystery that scared me and had me up all night was called Still Life with Crows by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. It still scares me. All I can say is the first murder is discovered in a corn field and the man is skinned and flayed. Not much like Aurelia, but theirs is the only series like that I will read.

  4. I'm not a big mystery fan but I love Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris. Not sure if they are considered mysteries or not, but they should be close enough ;)

  14. My favorite mystery ever is And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie; it's her book that uses the Ten Little Indians rhyme to set up a mystery.

  19. This sounds like a great book! I'm having trouble narrowing it down so I'm going to cheat and say the Sherlock Holmes stories from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He was the master!

  21. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was one of the only "mysteries" (I'm not sure if it would really be considered that) I read, as I don't really read many mysteries.

  54. I can honestly say that I haven't read a good mystery since I was a teenager and enjoyed the Nancy Drew mysteries. What has happened? Why aren't there a lot more adult mysteries available?

  57. Well I *really* need to read this book since it's the name of my book blog. ha.

    Favorite mystery. Well it's not strictly a mystery, but there is definitely some mystery going on in it, and it's my favorite book of all time so I'm going with Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

    Cheers!

  60. Oh I totally know how you feel... BUT I just recently found a mystery author that I LOVE! Her name is Anne Perry and she writes the William Monk novels and many others. I'm actually reading her first William Monk novel right now, called Face of a Stranger. It's excellent. The other I've read is Buckingham Palace Gardens, about inspector Thomas Pitt. Her mysteries are very well written and plotted. But I wouldn't recommend them if you can't handle blood or gory scenes. There was more than one bloody murder, and the wounds and where they were were spoken of between the inspectors. So, if you don't like blood, stay away. But if you can handle it, I'd highly recommend Anne Perry's work. :)
    Thanks for entering this giveaway - I have another one coming up on the 14th so be sure to enter that one as well! :)
