www.stopyourekillingme.com is my favorite website for looking up info on  mysteries and thrillers.

I like to read series books in order and that info is there.  It also has recommendations like "if you like this author, you might like....."  Or if you remember a character name, but not the author you can look info up that way as well.

Anyway...just puttin' it out there.

I didn't know it had the "If you like..." feature. I'll have to check that out. I agree, it's a great site if you read series. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE this website. I'm surfing around it several times a week. I wish there was a similar website for other genres, especially historical fiction. It is a wonderful resource.

I use this site all the time also. Whenever I finish a book in a series,I check which is the next  in line and wishlist it. This saves me a lot of confusion.

The site is pretty helpful, but lately I keep running into pages that have incomplete info!

Another site that I use alot is www.fantasticfiction.co.uk   It lists books by author and title in all genre not just mysteries.  I find the info more complete here...

Christina, I have found that if you send a quick e-mail to the owners of the site, they are really responsive about updating or at least getting back to you. As far as I can tell, the website is a labor of love and there are only a couple of people who keep it updated. SYKM is one of my favorite sites. :)

This is true.  I have emailed them once or twice.  I'm usually at work when I notice and forget to email them once I get home though.

Melani, it's great to see you post.  I hadn't seen you in a while and were hoping all was well with you.

Thanks for the link.

Does anyone else read the e-newsletter from SYKM and then head here to add a bunch of books to your WL and Reminder lists? I swear I add ten to fifteen books each month because of SYKM! LOL!

I sure do. I really like being able to see an entire series and their order.
