January 2016 reading goal

My January 2016 reading goal is to read the first ten of the Nancy Drew books! It’s been a long time since I have read any and I thought, since I had the mystery bug, I might as well make use of my Christmas present. So reading Nancy Drew it is!

So far I have read the secret of the old clockthe hidden staircaseThen Bungalow Mystery, and I am reading The mystery at Lilac Inn. There is 64 of these run short stories all at about 180 pages. They are fun quick reads that take me back to Jr. High when I first started to read them. I remember being engrossed in them, I couldn’t read enough of them. Though reading them now it feels different and I see the details in a different light or the themes to be a bit cliché I will always love the stories and the feelings I remember when enjoying one and I look forward to my own children reading them as well.

Fun fact: Did you know that Nancy Drew is a Pseudonym (Pen) Name for multiple authors produced by the Stratemeyer Syndicate.Both male and female authors wrote the series. Another amazing fact that I picked up is that there are 175 books! 175!! That's amazing! Nancy Drew ran from 1930 to 2003. And Nancy Drew got an overhaul from 2004-2012 with the books titles, Nancy Drew: Girl Detective.

Are there any mystery books you would recommend?
