Which books sparked your love of a good mystery? Here are a few of mine.
The Boxcar Children
by Gertrude Chandler Warner
This are some of the first mysteries I remember reading. They are really fun and the perfect books to introduce the Mystery Genre to children. I loved reading about these four children who will do anything to stay together.
by Carolyn Keene
I was immediately drawn to these books when they were first introduce to me. It was great to have a smart female role model to read about in a book. It shows young girls everywhere that it can be cool to be smart!
And Then There Were None
By Agatha Christie
This is a classic and it was my first Adult Mystery Novel. I read it when I was in High School and I loved it. I'm pretty sure that I was hooked to Mysteries after I read this book. Ten strangers are brought to an Island and then they start dying. Who brought them there to kill them?
by Ellen Raskin
Did anyone else love this book as much as I did? I read it at least twice when I was in high school. I loved the story about a group of people brought together in an apartment complex to solve of murder of a Millionaire. They are read his will and charged to solve his murder by following the clues. I loved trying to solve the clues along with the characters. This should be considered a classic for all teens to read. It is an amazing example of Mystery writing.
I love mysteries!
