Mystery & Suspense Reading Challenge 2012!

The Challenge:
Book Chick City is hosting this reading challenge for mystery and suspense lovers. The point is to read mystery or suspense books.

The Rules:
  1. Timeline: 01 Jan 2012 - 31 Dec 2012
  2. 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.
  3. You can join at anytime. All books read in 2012 count towards the challenge regardless of when you sign up.
  4. At the beginning of Jan 2012, you will find a link to specific month to add your reviews.
  5. Audiobooks do not count, but all other formats are accepted.
  6. This challenge can crossover to other challenges.
  7. You DO NOT have to write reviews of the books you read, but if you decide you would like to then Mr Linky will be available each month so you can link up your reviews.
  8. You don't have to have a blog to join in - for those without a blog but who use Goodreads, Amazon, LibraryThing etc, you can add the URL to where you track your books.
  9. 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! :)
