Annie's Year-End 2016 Mystery & Suspense Favorite Reads + Giveaway


Welcome to my very late Year-End 2016 Favorites!!

My year end favorite reads are books I've read in 2016 for the first time (and not necessarily all reviewed here - eek! or reviewed in 2016 - a few were posted in January 2017).  They are also not all published in 2016, but majority am. 

To start it off, here's what's going to happen. Every day in through February 28th (minus Sunday) at 6:00 PM EST
  1. I will tell you my favorite reads in the category of the day through their covers (you know how I love covers) and 
  2. you click on them to see my review of the book (in a new window). 
  3. Then you come back and fill out the Rafflecopter for a chance to win a prize! 


(NOT in any specific order!)


    

      

    

  


I started dabbling in the Mystery & Suspense category late 2015, and just love it! As of 2016, this is a genre that I always look forward to. The ones above are just the few that I've narrowed down. There are SOOOO many more 2016 releases that are on my TBR pile/list!  So forgive me if this doesn't cover all my favorite authors or the top mystery and suspense fiction out there!


(1) winner will win a box of Mystery & Suspense books courtesy of the publishers below.

I am still waiting on some prizes to be delivered, so I don't know all the contents yet.
Terms are on the Rafflecopter.

Many thanks to: 








Don't forget these other Top Faves of 2016 and Giveaways!
