2015 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge

***Challenge complete. See my wrap-up post HERE.***

Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2015
Hosted by: Elizabeth @ Thoughts from an Evil Overlord

Originally hosted by: Amy @ A Bookish Girl

Guidelines (quoted from the announcement page):
  • You can read any novel, short story or author just so that the genre is mystery/crime/thriller.
  • 1 novel counts as 1 novel( 1 novel is anything over 100 pages) of course but you will have to read 5 short stories to count as 1 novel.
  • There will be a monthly post for you to add a link or links to your post showing the progress that you have made so far. There will be two link-ups on each reading challenge post, one is a text link-up for those of you who are participating without a blog/through Goodreads/or through another way and then a thumbnail link-up for those of you that are participating from a blog.
  • There will be a book giveaway each month and for initially signing up.
Levels:
Read a certain number of books and at the end of the challenge, you'll receive a rank (there's a secret prize for the participant who reads the most books):
  1. 5 books = Inspector Lestrade
  2. 10 books = Amelia Peabody
  3. 15 books = Flavia de Luce
  4. 20 books = Inspector Ian Rutledge
  5. 25 books = Detective Simon Ziele
  6. 30 books = Miss Marple
  7. 35 books = Hercule Poirot
  8. 40+ books = Sherlock Holmes
I'll be shooting for the third level (Flavia de Luce), so I'm hoping to read at least 15 books that qualify.
