There is nothing better as a reader to discover a new series, especially one with a long backlist with plenty of books to catch up on. I know I won’t have to wonder what book I’ll be reading next and once I catch up, I know I can look forward to spending some time with ‘new friends’ each year.
As we head into prime beach reading season, here are my favorite current mystery and thriller series. Any of them would be great to throw in your suitcase for a vacation or in your beach bag to pass a lazy, sunny afternoon.
I read a lot of mysteries and thrillers throughout the year. Some I forget the main character and the plot within a day. Others stick with me. These are my favorite new releases from 2019 that hung around in my head the longest.
Almost 65% of American households have an Amazon Prime membership. That’s a staggering number and I’m sure most use their membership solely for the 2-day shipping, but it offers a lot of other benefits. Based on my own unscientific study of asking friends, one benefit that is often overlooked is the ability to borrow one free Kindle Unlimited book each month. Given that the price of a lot of Kindle books can still be high, 12 free books a year is a good deal and can further help you recoup the cost of membership.
