2017 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge

I will be doing this one again. I'm still working on this year's challenge and have already read more then 40 books, so I think I can get that many next year, or close to it. Click here to sign up.


I can’t believe it’s already time to sign up for 2017. I hope everyone who participated last year read a lot of great mystery, suspense, and thrillers. I know I did and I found a lot of new series! This year Barb @ BookerTsfarm and I have decided to add a few things to the challenge. Hope you will join us!

I read more mysteries this year than I have in a while, so I think I am a bit addicted. I can tell my reading mood has changed over the last couple of years and it’s landed on mysteries and horror. So I read almost 100 mysteries of some type this year!!

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: 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.
