Contemporary January Recommendations – Mystery Edition

Hi, lovelies. Sadly, I am here with my last recommendation post for this Contemporary January that has just gone by too fast. I’m going to separate this week’s recommendations into adult and young adult books. These will be a mix of mystery and thrillers that I really enjoyed.

Check out Alana’s post here.

Adult Mystery

The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
Full of twists and turns and never really sure where the story is going, you won’t be able to put it down until the final pages.

Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich
Forever one of my favorite adult series. Stephanie is always getting into some sort of trouble. Blowing up cars, going missing. And the men, swoonworthy!

The Chemist by Stephanie Meyer
This is one that even my husband loves and he’s not much of a reader.

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green
You need to stop what you’re doing and go read this book right now.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarity
My first Liane Moriarty book and it sure was a good one. Never really knowing what was really going on until the last page.

Young Adult Mystery

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
A cute summery mystery full of questions and suspense.

Sadie by Courtney Summers
One of the best audiobooks I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. The story was incredible and so were the narrators.

Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl
This was one that caught my eye because of the cover, but the pages inside were just as beautiful.

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
A very atmospheric and suspenseful summertime read.

Jane Unlimited by Kristen Cashore
A book that leaves you with questions right up until the end of the book before revealing its secrets. This story sure was a wild ride.

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
One of my absolute favorite mysteries. With all sorts of side plots going on, I couldn’t put it down until the end. The cover is freaking beautiful too which doesn’t hurt.

These are some of my favorite mysteries and thrillers. Let me know if you enjoyed any of these too! Tell me your favorites in the comments!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
