Sisters in Crime consists of authors, librarians and booksellers and mystery READERS. (In fact, we're all readers.) A few of us have compared notes. We hope you'll take a look and then share what you're currently reading.
And I'm reading STILL MISSING by newcomer Chevy Stevens, a harrowing story of a woman who is kidnapped and held captive by a man she calls The Freak. My review: OMG.
Mary Jane Maffini: If summer must end, I suppose I’ll survive because of the crop of books that has bloomed in my ‘to be read’ piles around the house, each one near a prime reading spot. My bedtime book is THE LONG QUICHE GOODBYE by Avery Aames. So far this is a delicious and cozy. Great fun so far. Meanwhile, down in the living room, I am rereading THE MARX SISTERS, a 1994 book by Barry Maitland. I rarely reread, but this is a chance to see DS Kathy Kolla meet her famous supervisor DCI David Brock for the first time. Although the books have become darker and edgier over time, this remains one of my favorite police procedural series.
Paige Shelton: Just started BRIGHT OF THE SKY (Book One of The Entire and the Rose) by Kay Kenyon. Don’t usually like science fiction, but got this one by accident. Not just a bunch of tech-talk. Good characters, good story.

C.L. Phillips: I'm reading Suzanne Collins trilogy HUNGER GAMES, CATCHING FIRE, and MOCKINGJAY. I recommend reading all three back-to-back, after you've sent your husband and children out of the house for the weekend. Have your meals delivered, and don't answer the phone. You'll fall into a spell you won't want to leave. Katniss could take Lord Voldermort any day.
And what are YOU reading?
