These are books I'd recommend to readers ready to explore a new-to-them genre. These recommendations are chosen to represent variety and celebrate differences. For example, instead of being a recommendation for ten Agatha Christie mysteries, it will represent a wide variety of mysteries--contemporary or classic--that may prove appealing.
Love YA? Try April Lindner's Catherine.
Love nonfiction? I'd recommend The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale.
Love science fiction? I'd recommend The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester.
Love Jane Austen? Try Pride and Prescience by Carrie A. Bebris.
Enjoy classics? Try Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White.
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards.
Love a little humor? I definitely recommend Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe series. (I just love, love, love Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe!) A good starting place would be Some Buried Caesar.
