Marni Graff, author of the Nora Tierney mystery series, also blogs under the name Auntie M for various mystery sites. She reads between 2 and 3 books a week for her crime review blog and last year she reviewed around 145 books in 85 posts. Those don’t include the books she reads for herself, like the one her granddaughter loved and insisted she read (Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See—she loved it, too!); or for sheer delight, like the Judi Dench photo-autobiography Behind the Scenes (huge Dench fan). Out of all of those books, there are always those that remain firmly in her mind as ones she’s looking forward to their sequels. They impress her for their creativity, their characters, their storytelling. In no particular order, she went through her posts and pulled out these highlights, most of which received her “highly recommended” citation. There could have been even more . . .
