This weeks top of the heap: Favorite Mystery Stories!
Edward Gorey. His work is so unbelievably subtle, yet as dramatic as it gets. One thing I really enjoy is the drawn out suspense- you literally have no clue what's happening. A story will randomly start and abruptly finish, you're baffled. The next book that you read will fascinate you, but it won't make any sense either. Then, you will read a third story, and something will click- BUT, the books are not labeled as having anything to do with each other, so you pretty much just have to sort it out for yourself. How entertaining! I only have my theories about what's happening, but who knows? It's all up to the interpreter. Brilliant. The YouTube video will take your imagination for a ride. There is a clue or something mysterious that happens in each segment, which will help you put the pieces of the mystery together. I would love to hear what you guys think! ~ F
Lizzy: I love to curl up with a good mystery. When I think of mysteries I think of my all-time favorite series- Nancy Drew. Once I read my first one I was hooked! I couldn’t wait to read more. I go to my local library every week and check out a few books and I am almost finished with them all! The best part is my mom read them all when she was a girl, so it is such fun to talk to her about Nancy, Bess, George and the fantastic mysteries they solve. I also get lots of ideas for ways I can help the Detective Mystery Squad (DMS) figure out cases in the future. ~ L
