My Mary Higgins Clark Library







  The idea to gather all of Mary Higgins Clarks books in my collection when on the author's wall on Facebook was posted this announcement earlier this month...

"Announcement time! Many of you have mentioned that you've collected many or even all of my books. Well, for the next two weeks, I want you to send me your photos of your own Mary Higgins Clark personal libraries! Also, be sure to enter the sweepstakes to win a SIGNED copy of THE LOST YEARS! Button is at the top of the timeline, third box over!"


but alas it was only for her US readers/fans who can enter the sweepstakes to win a signed copy of her latest book 'The Lost Years'. 




I started reading MHC in the early 1980s when sis Teh presented me with a copy of 'A Cry In The Night' and I was hooked from then on. 

Known as "The Queen of Suspense", Mary Higgins Clark is a "master plotter" who has the ability to slowly draw out the tension while making the reader think everyone is guilty. Her novels feature strong, independent young women who find themselves in the midst of a problem that they must solve with their own courage and intelligence. The heroines come across as real people who make sensible decisions, which makes it easier for readers, who sometimes think " "that could have happened to me, or to my to daughter," to relate to the situations. Her  books are written for adults, yet because she chooses not to include explicit sex or violence in her stories, they have become popular with children as young as twelve.




Most of the title of her books have been adapted into movies and telemovies but were not  as suspenseful and exciting as the books itself. 


Cindy pun suka jugak MHC!

I am not ashamed to tell you that I am not even familiar with the author's name, let alone reading one. Who knows one of these days I will borrow one from you, your best one.

Aiii tak yakin dgn Cindy tu, dok sprong warna kulit buku hok ceghoh2. Glad my gift has turned you into a MHC fan. She's forever the best. Reading her novel made the travel distance from US to Malaysia 'feel' shorter.
