Feature Shelf #44: The Murder & Crime Edition

This week’s shelf was requested by Ryan, because he wanted books like the movie The Purge. Talking about murder and crime books takes me back to my middle and early high school reading and TV watching — I love a good procedural drama.

Books:

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga. http://bit.ly/bl-killers | http://amzn.to/1uf5OpY
I love this series. I just finished the third one and it kept me guessing the entire time. I’m always a fan of books with enough twists and turns that my predictions are wrong.

Boy Nobody by Alan Zadoff. http://bit.ly/az-nobody
Interesting premise. It’s also the beginning of a series, but it didn’t engage me as much as I thought it would. I think it’s because I expected the story to go a certain way and it didn’t end up where I thought it would.

Ten by Gretchen McNeil  http://bit.ly/gm-ten | http://amzn.to/1rfp5mq
I remember reading this years ago and thinking about how I don’t watch horror movies.  There’s a reason I don’t watch horror movies. This book is it.

Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson http://amzn.to/1EI3oAL
The audio for this one was on Audiobooksync last summer, which is how it came to my attention. If I’m understanding correctly, this book is situated inside a larger Patterson universe. Could someone tell me more about this? Patterson’s books haven’t struck my fancy.

The Naturals by Jennifer Barnes. http://bit.ly/1Bbc3dO
I find profilers interesting. Perhaps that’s why I like Criminal Minds so much despite some of it’s issues. I would love more look into the characters, and I’m hopeful that the rest of the series digs deeper into their motivations and ambitions. It has the potential to be super engaging.

The books on this week’s Feature Shelf. Video will be up this evening.
