    Awesome, thanks for such a great list! Mystery is my fave genre. Eeek! So many more authors to add to my TBR pile!

    I loved Nancy Drew. My daughter read all of her books. And our son loved The Boxcar Boys. Both series were wonderful

  4. I grew up reading (and loving) Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys! Man, that takes me back. I should be reading Veronica Speedwell soon, and I can’t wait to meet her, too. :3 I think my favorite amateur sleuth growing up, though, was Encyclopedia Brown. xD

    Here’s my TTT post.
