‘Tis the season, readers, of waiting with bated breath to see if your loved ones, friends, coworkers, and people you tolerate love the gifts you gave them as much as you’d hoped that they would. And so, to help you out a little bit with the bookish people in your life, we’ve decided to put together a few quick lists for your holiday shopping pleasure.

Oh! And there’s a twist! Every single book on these lists can be found in paperback, as well as ebook. We know we talk on and on about books that you can get with the click of a button and download straight to your devices, but there’s just nothing like giving or receiving a proper paperback book; something you can hold in your hand, hug tightly in elation, and yes, sniff that new book smell of that you wish came in a cologne.

So let’s get right to it. We have 8 Mystery and Suspense books that are sure to fit the bill for all of your book-buying needs, even if it’s just a treat for yourself to help pass the time until the holidays actually get here.
