Hodgepodge 215/365 - Edgars

I am always in the market for good reading recommendations, and I always like mysteries, so here is the list of Edgar nominees and winners for 2017—for future reference:

Best Novel

The Ex by Alafair Burke
Where It Hurts by Reed Farrel Coleman
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
What Remains of Me by Alison Gaylin
Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

Best First Novel

Under the Harrow by Flynn Berry
Dodgers by Bill Beverly
IQ by Joe Ide
The Drifter by Nicholas Petrie

There are other categories, including Short Story, Juvenile Young Adult, Critical/Biographical, Fact Crime. But just an old-fashioned mystery is a good enough start for me.

  1. At BEA, a few days ago, Cheryl Strayed interviewed Hillary Clinton and asked her what she's reading. Hillary named a string of authors who I want to check out.
