It's time to pick the January books!

This topic is for the theme suggestions. Each person can suggest one book for this category.

The theme is mystery/detective!


To suggest a book please put the title and the author. And remember the book must be be YA!

Also a little reminder to everyone. This is not where you vote. This is where you make suggestions for the poll. The poll will probably be up around mid December so about December 15.

Don't forget to suggest something for the series suggestions, random suggestions, and single suggestions.

The suggestions also can't be something we've already read and they have to be young adult because we are a young adult group! To see what we've read and haven't read go to the Books we've read topic. If you are new I strongly suggest this!

Agreed The Vanishing of Katharina Linden is an excellent mystery as is the Glass Demon
The Glass Demon by Helen Grant
Both by Helen Grant
They are both YA but I would say 12/13+, both are set in the real world not paranormal in the vampires/ witches sense. Very different to the books on the 'read list' and a bit more of a challenging read which may be why they are coming up as 3.5 not 4.
