I like history, and mysteries, but I'm open to anything. If you look at what I've read, I think you'll see it's pretty diverse. If you'd like to enhance my diverse reading, please feel free. I like surprises. Please feel free to use my wishlist for suggestions if you're stumped.
Don't get this!
I have or have read all of Louise Penny's books, so don't get those. I also am not a fan of cozy mysteries, although I've read some. Also I didn't like the one Philippa Gregory historical fiction that I read, so no more of those.
bcrowl399's Secret Santa is Garp83. Help Garp83 pick the right book.
Cfraser: I see you enjoyed the book thief (in your best loved collection) the same author has just released a new book - bridge of clay - I haven't read it yet but went to a talk by the author where he did a reading and it sounds really good (many people I spoke to there raved about it).
In terms of history - two books I enjoyed by Mark Tedeschi are Eugenia (the story of a woman who lived as a man and was charged with murder of her wife in 1920 - lots of insight into legal history) and Murder at Myall creek (about massacre of a group of indigenous people in 1800s, the man who prosecuted them and legal history/ history of Australia - really interesting) (Sat, 17 Nov 2018 15:29:36 -0500)
thornton37814: I would suggest Dissolution by C. J. Sansom as a solid historical mystery. Another historical mystery she might also enjoy Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear. (Tue, 27 Nov 2018 17:52:36 -0500)
cbl_tn: I second the suggestions of C. J. Sansom and Jacqueline Winspear. I would also suggest Zoo Station by David Downing, Blind Justice by Bruce Alexander, Ellis Peters's Brother Cadfael series (I might start with #2, One Corpse Too Many), or Josephine Tey's The Daughter of Time.
