I’m finished with the challenge and I’m impressed that I’ve read this many mysteries in such a short time. 20 books is not a big deal, but its such an accomplishment for me!!!
Here are the 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
