It’s a mystery

Mysteries have filled the news this past week. 

The Edgar Awards were announced, and that always gets me all excited. 

Each year, I look at the winner (and nominees) of the Best First Novel award, because usually that signals we got some up-and-comers to track. 

This year, you didn’t have to look far to find out which novel won that one. 

The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen, recently all over the news for having won the Pulitzer, also won the Edgar for Best First Novel.

And then some other books won awards, too.  

In other news… Book Expo is almost here, and I’m gonna be there! Completely excited about meeting other bloggers amidst the book-laden frenzy. If you see me, say hi. And then tell me what you’re reading; can’t wait to hear.
