Sharp Objects is my pick for "Mystery and suspence" (eventhough I could have choosen it for the "A book bust or bummer" category).
1. A book by a dead author - Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier
2. YA or children´s title - Ares: Bringer of Death by George O´Connor
3. A blast from the past: historical fiction - Jane Steele by Lindsay Faye
4. Mystery and suspence - Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
