Mystery & Non Fiction Books You Should Read


Mystery Non Fiction

If you have followed my blog lately on Saturday’s you know that I’m showcasing a list of 100 books you should read. This list was made up by votes by users on Goodreads. I’ve broken the list down by genre. The full list can be found here.

Here is a list of the genres I have already covered:



Historical Fiction

Today I will showcase the Mystery and Non Fiction genre together since both are a small list. I’m actually surprised that there are only 5 books in this mystery genre.  The Mystery genre is a very popular one. I enjoy mysteries. There are only 6 books in the Non Fiction genre. I enjoy those ones as well. I really enjoy True Crime.

First up is the Mystery genre.

1. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie


2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (I have heard a lot of great things about this book. It’s been on my TBR list for awhile.)

3. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier 


4. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle (Who hasn’t at least heard of Sherlock Holmes)

5. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson  (I’ve had this trilogy on my TBR list for awhile as well).

Here is the list for Non Fiction.

1. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank  (Who hasn’t read this book in school? I read it as an adult as well and it still gives me chills)

2. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (I’ve had this on my TBR list)

3. Night by Elie Wiesel (I read this book in one sitting. I just could not put it down. The horror of the Holocust just stays with you even just reading about it)

4. The Glass Castle by  Jeannette Walls (I read this years ago. I’m shocked at how some people choose to raise their kids.)

5. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot (I read this and the story really stayed with me. My daughter read this for a school assignment. She does not like to read but loved reading this story.)

6. The Story of My Life by Helen Keller (I put this book on my long never ending TBR list. I will be honest that I don’t know much about Helen Keller.

I hope you enjoyed the books I have listed. Please come back next week for a list of Science Fiction.
