My Second Challenge

By Golly, I have found my next challenge. It's been a "challenge" to find one out there that I thought I could actually accomplish. This one sounds perfect for me considering I get into such a "cozy" mood each holiday or turn of season.

Head on over to Mysteries and My Musings to sign up.
Thanks to Libby's Library News for bringing this to my attention.

Here's the scoop:

* This reading challenge runs October 1 - February 28

Pretty much the entire
mystery genre is available for this challenge.


1 Paranormal or gothic mystery for Halloween (level of spookiness up to you)
2 Autumn/harvest/Thanksgiving related mystery
2 Winter/snow/Xmas//Hanukah etc related mystery
1 resolutions/new beginnings related mystery
1 Romantic mystery/Valentine's related(chocolate, February(level of romantic up to you)

Total of 7 books in all over 5 months for 1.4 book per month.
Hopefully not a burden of a reading challenge while adding a little seasonal fun.

Here are my books:
I have decided to stick with one author, Leslie Meier (Lucy Stone series). I am now reading one of her titles and I really like it and she just happens to write books that revolve around holiday/seasonal murders! I've cheated a little bit with the paranormal pick but oh well, I'm still reading right?

Back to School Murder
Trick or Treat Murder
Turkey Day Murder
Christmas Cookie Murder
Mistletoe Murder
New Year's EveMurder
Valentine Murder

Search for Leslie Meier on KensingtonBooks.com

Happy Reading!
