Cloak And Dagger 2017 Reading Challenge



This challenge is hosted by Stormi at Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My! and Barb at Booker T's Farm.

From Stormi:

This year Barb and I have decided to open up a facebook group for all of us who are addicted to mysteries, as we thought it would be fun to chat now and then about those mysteries we are reading. You read a really good one and want to give it a shout out, or if your curious to see what everyone is reading, or want to tease us with a tidbit from your current read, or just general chatter. 🙂 Here is the groups link:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/350512171977943/ It’s a closed group so just ask to join and we shall let you in. 🙂

Challenge Rules:
  • You can read any book that is from the mystery/suspense/thriller/crime genres. Any sub-genres are welcome as long as they incorporate one of these genres.
  • You don’t need a blog to participate but you do need a place to post your reviews to link up. (blog, goodreads, booklikes, shelfari, etc.)
  • Make a goal post and link it back here with your goal for this challenge.
  • Books need to be novellas or novels, please no short stories. (At least 100 pages +)
  • Crossovers into other challenges  are fine.
  • The Challenge will  be from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. (Sign up ends April 15th)

There will be a monthly link up so that others can check out your progress and look at your reviews. At the halfway mark and at the end we will have a giveaway for those participating.

If you tweet about your progress or reviews please use the hashtag #2017CloakDaggerChal so others can see it.


Levels:
5-15 books – Amateur sleuth
16-25 books – Detective
26-35 books – Inspector
36–55 books – Special agent
56+ books – Sherlock Holmes

I don’t know about you but I seem to gain more series than I finish, so  think I am going to make 2017 the year of finishing some series! 🙂 To help along with that Barb and Thought we would make a mini challenge within the Cloak and Dagger challenge.

Can you finish a series in a year? Or how about two or three series? The amount will be up to you! At the end of the year, we will have you link up the last book in the series or at least the last book that is out and published as it can be a series that is still going on. You can then sign up for the series ender giveaway for a $5 gift card. It’s a totally optional challenge, but we just wanted to try something different this year. 🙂
