Not Necessarily Mysterious

Not Necessarily Mysteries:

 I was going to just talk about Young Adult/Teen mystery series today, but then I began to think.

There are several great book series that contain mysteries within their plotlines, even though they may not be designated as such. A good example of this in the Young Adult/Teen section is that of Rick Riordan’s three mythology based series. Each one is shelved as a fantasy novel, but each one also contains mysterious elements which lead the protagonists on their journeys and build suspense for the reader. 

Other such novels, like the Mortal Instruments series written by Cassandra Claire, build suspense and keep readers coming back for more by dropping hints and providing small and large mysteries that float throughout the stories.  Harry Potter has mysteries sprinkled in each book and even romance stories, like the Just a Little series by Tracie Puckett weaves tales of mystery and dropping clues, even if just to discover what that cute guys ‘deal’ is!

 

If, at the end of the day, you prefer just a good old fashioned mysterious book then I suggest these titles for your reading pleasure:

 

 

 

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

 

The Catalyst Series by Heidi Willard (supernatural thriller mysteries)
