While putting together a jigsaw puzzle the other day, it hit me that my love of puzzles and of mystery novels are more alike than I thought. It’s satisfying to scratch your head over something that at first seems too complex to figure out and then, piece by piece, come to a solution. In a strange way, mysteries are relaxing to me, especially after a day of real-life struggles that don’t have neat solutions.

I’m far from alone in this. Recently, fellow Book Riot contributor, Carolina Ciucci, wrote a personal essay on how reading Agatha Christie books helped her with her anxiety because she found the guaranteed solutions comforting. Other reasons for loving mysteries vary as much as the rich genre and the novels that define it. There is so much about the genre to enjoy that it’s hard to find someone that can’t think of at least one mystery novel or movie that they like.

This round-up of bookish merch includes goodies that reference a specific mystery series (Sherlock Holmes, for example) as well as ones that celebrate the genre as a whole. Whether you’re looking for clothes, around-the-house decor, or even games to test your mystery-solving skills for yourself, you’re sure to find something that delights you.
