Moonlight Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Currently reading

The Alienist
Caleb Carr
Progress: 38/498 pages

Some suggestions for today's bingo call!

Miraculous Mysteries: Locked Room Mysteries and Impossible Crimes (British Library Crime Classics) - Martin Edwards The Black Lizard Big Book of Locked-Room Mysteries (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard Original) - Otto Penzler, Otto Penzler Death in the Tunnel - Miles Burton Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot, #10) - Agatha Christie

Remember - you don't necessarily need to read an entire book to fill each square. The two collections are both chock full of "locked room" mysteries and other impossible crimes. The Black Lizard edition, edited by Otto Penzler, is a long book (900+ pages), and the Martin Edwards offering is part of the British Library Crime Classics series. One or two stories would fill this square nicely!

 

In addition, Murder on the Orient Express is such a wonderful book that everyone should read it! There is also a new adaptation coming soon to a theater near you, so if you plan to see the movie, always read the book first!

 

Finally, Death in the Tunnel has received a mixed reception here on BL. Both Tigus & I really liked it, but BrokenTune (I think) was decidedly lukewarm.
