For our Annual Challenge of 2018 we are going to read a Calendar of Crime/ Mystery/ Thriller and Suspense



The Rules!

1. Easy Challenge
(12 books) Choose a book for each month of the year with one of the supplied words in the title.

e.g. January. Jigsaw Man
February. Genuine Fraud
March. Murder, Mayhem & Men On Pause

2. Hard Challenge. (24 books) Do the same as above, and choose a second word from the supplied list.

e.g. January. The Judas Strain
February. Fatal Mistake
March. M is for Malice

3. All books MUST be read in their appropriate month, so this challenge will take all of us the full twelve months.

4. All books must be from our genres of crime/mystery/thriller/ suspense.

5. You can choose to count 'a' 'an' and 'the' or you can ignore them when picking your titles.

6. Choose your level, choose your books and then list and link your choices in this thread.
