My Kind of Mystery Reading Challenge 2018 01/24/18

Reading challenge

Last year I was invited at the end of the first month of the challenge to join the My Kind of Mystery Challenge. At the time I joined because I needed some cheering up after facing the very possible reality of the entire family relocating to Kitchener. Well, that didn't happen but I did have fun with the challenge.

In the last challenge I managed to read and review 42 mystery books. This year my goal is a minimum of 52. Since the summer I've been reviewing a mystery once a week — on Wednesdays. I hope this year to expand a bit from my usual either middle grade mysteries or my cozy mysteries. But I am fans of both.
