  1. Mystery, Crime, Suspense – three of my favorite genres! Adding all 5 of these to my TBR list, and I would have been stunned if Stephen King wasn’t on this list. Let me recommend Spirit of the Fox, A friend suggested it to me and it has yet to disappoint. It ties in Japanese folklore, which is a lot cooler than I thought it would be – Matthew O’Connell, the author, does a great job pulling the reader right in and getting you to keep turning pages.
