This isn’t a writing challenge. It’s a reading challenge: “BookChickCity’s Mystery and Suspense Reading Challenge 2012.”
Can you believe a challenge that invites you to read mystery books and review them? I can’t believe how lucky I was t o find this. I read mysteries and crime books anyway, with a little feeling of guilt, of course, since they aren’t really “literature.” I tend to shrug them off as a something I do between reading “real” novels. But let’s face it. I read them AND write them. I love them. I love page-turners, where the detective finds a new clue at the end of the chapter or is kidnapped or roughed up and you wonder what adventure is coming next.
Therefore, I was delighted to find this challenge. All I have to do is link to that website and review the books I read. And all I have to do is read and review from twelve to twenty-four mysteries this year.
Next time you see me reading I’ll be happy to boast that I’m reading a mystery book. No more guilty pleasure; it will be number blank on my list of books I’m reviewing.
