I love mysteries. My favorite kinds are Police Procedurals such as Deborah Crombie, Ann Cleeves, or Louise Penny. I also enjoy historical fiction with historical mysteries such as those written by C. J. Sansom's Matthew Shardlake series, Barbara Cleverly's Joe Sandilands series, and Victoria Thompson's Gaslight series being among favorites. I enjoy history books, primarily American and Western European, although I'm not crazy about military books unless it is more of a social history about the average person during the war. I especially enjoy history books relating to areas of genealogical interest--Southern States, Colonial New England, England, Amish, women's traditional roles, etc. I also enjoy cookbooks.
Don't get this!
Books with a lot of profanity or graphic sex, science fiction, fantasy, the noir/hard-boiled genre, espionage genre, things already owned in my catalog.
If a book came out before I joined LibraryThing, I may have read it even though it is not included here. If you don't know me, LT member cbl_tn knows my literary tastes pretty well and can keep a secret. My LT Christmas 2018 wishlist is up-to-date, and I welcome books from it. I'm also participating in the Christmas swap and suggested that my Santa there post a comment here to avoid duplication.
thornton37814's Secret Santa is hazel1123. Help hazel1123 pick the right book.
cbl_tn: From her wishlist I can recommend the Oxford Very Short Introductions. The books in this series are consistently good and it shouldn't disappoint. I'd recommend the Mary Stewart for fiction.
