Waiting on Wednesday

Books to Die For edited by John Connolly & Declan Burke. I discovered this little gem on Facebook! I don’t know about anyone else but I’m always fascinated by what the authors I love, love reading. I’m also particularly partial to the fact that Tana French has one of my favorite books of all time as her “must read” : The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I can’t wait to read her thoughts about the book and to discover so new favorites from some awesome authors! Especially being the mystery lover I am. It’s also irresistible because it’s a book ABOUT books! Can we say CANDY?
BOOKS TO DIE FOR is a unique, must-have anthology for any fan of the mystery genre, featuring personal essays from 120 of the world’s most beloved and renowned crime writers on the mysteries and thrillers that they most admire, edited by two of their own—John Connolly and Declan Burke.
Tana French on The Secret History by Donna Tartt; Jo Nesbø on Jim Thompson’s Pop. 1280; Kathy Reichs on The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris; Michael Connelly on Raymond Chandler’s The Little Sister, and Charlaine Harris on Geoffrey Household’s Rogue Male: these are just a few of the 120 internationally bestselling mystery writers showcased in this collection—a book every reader of crime fiction should own.
In the most ambitious anthology of its kind ever compiled, each author pays a deeply personal tribute to one mystery that means the most to them, explaining why that book affects them and how it has influenced their own work. This collection presents a treasure trove of works in the mystery genre by the people who know it best, and is an essential guide for all readers and writers.
