Some of us enjoy reading as many books as we can that fit the genres of the month. Is anyone planning to submerge into some mysteries, or the classics, or delve into Sub-Saharan lit? This is a thread to share thoughts, plans, recommendations.

Mysteries that are Classics...

I'm reading two Victorian novels during March.
- Lady Audley's Secret
- Our Mutual Friend

Both are terrific! Great examples of what makes nineteenth century novels so much fun to read. :)

Yep. Mysteries are a lot of fun. I forget how much, then pick one up and sink right in. Then I'm off on a binge. :)

Margie I've tried to expand my reading but mysteries are definitely my most-read genre. I like all kinds - cozies, procedurals, paranormal, you name it.

For this challenge I'll be reading Death of a Nurse by M.C. Beaton. This is the latest in the popular Hamish Macbeth cozy mystery series set in the Scottish Highlands.

I'll also be reading One Under by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. This is the latest in the Bill Slider series, a police procedural series that I have really enjoyed in the past.

I'll be reading different mysteries for a few other challenges:

PopSugar, Book that takes place on an island: White Nights
Back to the Classics - Classic Detective Novel: The Man in the Queue
Mini-Challenge - The Ides of March: The Book of Souls

Hope everyone finds a great new mystery this month!
