I've managed to find yet another reading challenge to take part in - Book Chick City's Mystery and Suspense Reading Challenge. I've got a lot of mysteries on my TBR pile and hopefully this will help me to work my way through some of them!
Here are the details:
Timeline: 01 Jan 2012 - 31 Dec 2012
Rules: There are TWO LEVELS you can choose from:
- Read TWELVE (12) mystery & suspense novels in 2012
- Read TWENTY FOUR (24) mystery & suspense novels in 2012
You don't have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront you can change them, nothing is set in stone! The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.
You can join at anytime. All books read in 2012 count towards the challenge regardless of when you sign up.
At the beginning of Jan 2012, you will find a link to specific month to add your reviews.
Audiobooks do not count, but all other formats are accepted.
This challenge can crossover to other challenges.
You can choose from the numerous sub-genres of mystery and suspense, from cosy mysteries such as Agatha Christie to the more hard-boiled kind like V I Warshawski by Sara Paretsky, or romantic suspense written by the likes of Linda Howard, forensic crime such as those written by Kathy Reichs and even paranormal/supernatural suspense such as Kelley Armstrong. I'm sure this challenge will have something for everyone! :)
I am going to try and read 12 books for this challenge. I don't know specifically which twelve books they will be but I have some series that I would like to try and dip into for this challenge so more than likely it will be books from the following series:
Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich
Alex Cross Series by James Patterson
Women's Murder Club Series by James Patterson
In Death Series by J.D. Robb
