Good grief! I thought I would just whip together my next mystery book theme, but I’m finding that it is taking a little longer than I had planned.
One really nice thing about putting together a new theme for the Theme Page, is that I get to “revisit” mystery authors who perhaps I hadn’t thought about in a while. I tend to keep to my “favorites” (as in favorite authors) and forget about possible favorite authors.
I am creature of habit…
However, right now I am trying to devote my reading time to trying new authors. I am glad that I have done just that, since I have been able to add a few new ones to my “favorites” list… Bill Crider and J. B. Stanley (aka Jennifer Stanley, although I haven’t read any of her books under that moniker YET!!!)
I do have to admit, though, that there have been a few stinkers in my latest attempt to broaden my horizons. I am not going to name those authors, but let me just say what I posted on my private list of authors: YUCK!!! Yep, that’s my code, and I don’t think I need to say more!
So, right now I am starting a mystery book by a new author (to me) and I will be posting about him/her in a few days… IF I like his/her mystery book.
When I am in this discovery-type of mood, I am always hopeful that I will find a mystery author who I can add to the others… and am always sad when that doesn’t happen. I’ll let you know after I hit the magic page number (50, for me) >>> but if you don’t hear from me, that means I’m off on another “search and identify” mission, and that this latest mystery author has turned out to be an addition to my YUCK!!! list.
