      1. Shucks. Ha ha, well, at least you got a post idea out if it. Yep, I love them! I grew up on Nancy Drew and Mandie Mysteries. I haven’t found any really good ones as I’ve gotten older, though – just Sherlock Holmes. I need to try Agatha Christie.

        1. Haha Yep, thanks for the idea! πŸ˜‰
          Aw how fun! I’ve absolutely adored an old mystery series from about that time called Trixie Belden. Have you heard of it?
          The Kate’s Case series is fascinating and older AND the first one is free today!! (the others 99c) So you definitely should try those!
          Also, Kate (my sis) has a Goodreads shelf of mysteries which is fun to stalk and glean from, my favorite one being The Scarlett Pimpernel. πŸ˜€

          1. Yes! I read the first Trixie Belden but never ended up reading the rest…
            Thank you so much for the ideas! Oh yes – I REALLY want to read The Scarlet Pimpernel – I read a mystery by the author called The Old Man in the Corner.

            1. Coolness! The first five Trixie Beldens by the original author are great, then they can tend to get a little… all the same. πŸ˜‰ I totally ADORE the illustration style tho!!
              Absolutely! Yes, read it! I’ve never heard of that story… sounds really interesting! I’ll have to find it. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the title!

              1. Yeah, so did the Nancy Drews. The Old Man in the Corner was interesting. It basically consisted of a reporter or journalist (can’t remember) talking to this man about how he solved these mysteries, without even being there.

          1. Yay! *high fives back* What’s your favorite historical fiction? Have you ever read The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey? I thought it was really exciting! It was a little confusing (like when they talked in a different language or the long and hard to pronounce names…) but the challenge was good! And there is a little violence because of the time is history, but I read the library book and had to buy one for my bookshelf, I liked it so much!

    1. Wow, I didn’t even know that was a genre… that’s how much I know. *hides* XD I’ve read some historical romance (like Love Comes Softly, Wings of a Dream, and Daddy-Long-Legs), but not enough to be able to recommend five. Do you have a favorite?

      1. Um… it’s probably a subgenre now that I think of it. xP It turned out to be Military, right? Yeah, same. I don’t really love historical fiction unless they’re done in a way that I’m not constantly reminded that it’s in another era. xP Does that make sense? I really love Kellyn Roth’s books though- they’re fantastic.

        1. Ah cool! Yep, it was military-themed books. πŸ™‚
          Exactly! I love the kind of historical fiction book where I can get right into the story and feel like I’m there with the other characters. ❀
          I have yet to read one of Kellyn's books… which one should I try first? I'm thinking maybe her latest "Goldfish Secrets". (OH! Actually, I read "Esther Ashton's New Dress"! That was a fun short story. πŸ™‚ Have you read it?)

          1. Ahh, okay.
            I’d recommend reading The Dressmaker’s Secret (which is the one I tried first). I haven’t read Goldfish Secrets yet though, so I wouldn’t know about that one. ;P Let me know what you think!
