Warning: My computer or Blogger (take your pick) isn't cooperating today which is why you are only getting some of the covers and not all. Sorry!
Whose Body by Dorthy L. Sayers- My cover doesn't actually look like this one but oh well. She is listed as a classic mystery author and this is the 1st book in her Lord Peter Wimsey series.
A Morbid Taste For Bones by Ellis Peters- 1st book in the medieval mystery series...it looks SO good.
The Face of a Stranger by Anne Perry- A Victorian mystery featuring William Monk.
Booked To Die by John Dunning- A mystery featuring books...how can anyone resist that? :P
Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert- Not a mystery but one that fits the RIP bill...I couldn't let you think that I had got off of that kick yet either.
Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews- 2nd book in this series and one that I have been meaning to read for awhile now.
The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie- Of course I have a Christie novel checked out if I am on a mystery kick (and my cover doesn't look like this either...I told you I was struggling)
The Ghost Orchid by Carol Goodman- I have Eva's review to blame for this one.
Rogue by Rachel Vincent- Another book that I've been meaning to read as I loved the 1st on in this series.
Larceny and Lace by Annette Blair- Just because it looked cute :)
So this is the majority of what I have checked out these past few weeks. Sorry for the crazy post but I was seriously having issues. Share your thoughts and if you have any other amazing mystery author suggestions, please share! I love adding to the tbr list!!!

I absolutely cannot resist joining this challenge even if I probably shouldn't. All that is required is that I come up with a reading list and then read, read, read. I've decided to make my list HELP me with finishing up a few of the challenges that I've got going on. It might work and it may not so we'll have to see. And I am limiting it to ten as I don't want to overdo it :P
My list will begin with:
- The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie ( this one is just to continue my goal of reading ALL of the books written by this author)
- Rogue by Rachel Vincent- for the 2nds challenge
- The Lost Sister by Megan Kelley Hall- YA challenge, 2nds, and RIP challenge (and I am currently reading this so it had to go on the list)
- The Woman In White by Wilkie Collins- RIP challenge and another one that I am currently working on
- A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Behl- TBR challenge
- A Morbid Taste for Bones by Ellis Peters- 1st in a series challenge and because Nymeth put me in the mood to read a good mystery
- The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry- RIP challenge
- Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb- to continue on with my favorite series
- The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gillman- a reread from a long time ago
- Aunt Dimity and the Duke by Nancy Atherton- 2nds challenge and so I have a cozy mystery on my list
There you have it folks...now wish me luck on finishing all of these. I may change the books that I read but probably not the categories, so in other words I will definitely read a cozy, books for my ongoing challenges, etc. I'm looking forward to this and to seeing what everyone else is reading (and adding to the TBR list of course)!

This is quite funny (who comes up with this stuff) but I am honored that she decided to share it with me. I HATE sharing these as I always end up skipping someone that deserves it but apparently I have to give it a shot...or risk the wrath and stuff like that. How about I give this award to:
- Jackie at Literary Escapism
- Laughing Stars at Stark Raving Bibliophile (new to me blog)
- and of course, right back at Suko from Suko's Notebook
You can find all of these blogs in my sidebar as apparently I'm too
lazy busy to link up to them. And how about if I risk the wrath and nominate every single blog in my sidebar. I love all of your blogs. I'm off to go figure out which books are due at the libray tomorrow and maybe request a few more as I'm feeling a bit book crazy. What would I do without the library and your blogs to fuel my addiction?
P.S.- I hate Blogger's spacing issues! Seriously...

I LOVE this time of year...it just naturally puts me in the mood for reading :) And after joining the R.I.P. IV challenge, I just can't seem to stop checking out reads for the challenge. If you haven't joined in on the fun then you really should consider giving it a try. I've been adding to my TBR list like crazy and the challenge just started. So I've got a bunch of R.I.P. inspired reads to share with you today:
The Lunatic Cafe by Laurell K. Hamilton- This challenge is the perfect excuse for me to dip into this series again.
Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast- I found this one as I was perusing other participants' lists and realized that it has been on my TBR list for awhile now. It sounds really good too!
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr- I've checked this one out before and haven't had the chance to get to it yet but I will this time...I think.
