2018 Reading Challenges

For the last couple of years I’ve skipped out on the Reading Challenges, because I’ve been too busy. But I’ve decided to participate in the 2018 Reading Challenges because this is the one of the most fun parts of blogging… hanging out with you and the BUTTONS!

Follow the Clues Mystery Challenge

Follow the Clues Mystery ChallengeFollow a set of clues furnished by the mystery books you read to create a body of evidence to support a book court case. Each book clue should lead you to your next read. The connection can be anything at all from author names to motive for murder to type of mystery (police, procedural, espionage, romantic thriller, etc.) to an item on the cover, but you must be able to make your case to the jury on your detective logic.

Level: Infraction — six books read in a single chain of evidence

~For this year’s challenge, you start your chain after signing up. The idea is to let your books lead to one another, not to read several books and then look back for connections.

~You are welcome to level up if you find that your evidence trail leads you to suspect a more serious crime. But no reduced sentences will be accepted (no leveling down).

~A wrap-up post/comment/email will be requested that should include explanations of the clue links.

Where Are You Reading? 2018

Follow the Clues Mystery ChallengeI stopped by Under the Boardwalk today and saw that Nise was doing a challenge I’d been looking for. Though she’s not formally doing it, I decided to join in.

I’m not going to purposefully read from each state, but use this challenge to track how well rounded I am in choosing my reading material, geographically. 🙂 I’m also ONLY going to record the first book I read from each state instead of recording every book I read for the state in 2018.
