Mystery and Suspense Reading Challenge 2012

I just love Book Chick City‘s pink hair! Her fun logos just make me want to join her in whatever challenge she has going, so I’m signing on for her Mystery and Suspense one again this year.

Here are the details, and if you want to join me the link is HERE:

Challenge 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.
• 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! 🙂 To help you figure out and decide, I have updated a sub-genre list – to view this list go HERE.

Last year I managed 22 mysteries and thrillers, so I’m going to choose the option to read 12 this year. If I do more, then that’s a bonus.
