The Broke and the Bookish is Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read from X genre. I've been a mystery reader my whole life so I'm going with the mysteries I somehow missed.
2. The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett - When you think about vintage mystery The Maltese Falcon is the biggie. There's movies, there's countless references and re-tellings. While I've read a book that involved the manuscript of the book I've never actually read the book!
3. In the Woods by Tana French - French is an author that's come to my attention within the last few months and I was shocked that I've never rad any of her books. She's Irish on top of that and my reflex when I see the word Irish is to buy so I'm not sure how I missed this one.
4. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins - I've seen this on countless best mystery ever lists but have never read it.
5. A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle - I read The Hound of the Baskervilles in 8th Grade I think. Given that was 20 years ago it may be time for a reread! I've loved both the Elementary and Sherlock shows and ever since I found out that all the episodes of Sherlock were based on actual Doyle stories I've been really excited about reading these.
7. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Flavia de Luce #1) by Alan Bradley - Despite the fact that I love the covers of this series I've never picked any up. I think the fact that it was a teenage detective made me think that it was too YA but I've read enough great things about this series that I've changed my mind.
8. Still Life by Louise Penny - This is the first in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series set in Quebec. It's a police procedural series that I only discovered months ago. The whole series looks right up my alley so I'm not quite sure how I missed it but I'm really excited to start reading it!
9. Aunt Dimity's Death by Nancy Atherton - Atherton is an author that's been writing cozies since before there were cozies. I've always overlooked them and never picked one up but I read a review of one of the newer ones recently and it sounds intriguing. Aunt Dimity's Death is the first.
10. The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain - Like Tana French and Louise Penny, Chamberlain is an author I have no idea how I've gone so long without even hearing of her! The Silent Sister was what brought her books onto my radar but she has so many and they all sound great!
Have you read any of these? What books can you not believe you haven't read?
