Thriller & Suspense Challenge 2010!

This challenge is hosted by BookChickCity

Timeline: 01 Jan – 31 Dec 2010
Rules: To read TWELVE (12) thrillers in 2010


• You don’t have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront then you can change them, nothing is set in stone! The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.

• You can join anytime between now and the later part of 2010.

Contrary to my earlier statements this year (both here, on twitter and IRL) that I didn’t want to do reading challenges anymore because I feel the pressure of obligatory reading and reviewing next to all my other (reading) obligations, this was a challenge I couldn’t resist and I have a few reasons for it:

First, I don’t have to select any books ahead of time, so the sense of obligation is somewhat diminished. This, however, doesn’t mean I don’t have some books in mind for this challenge specifically and I know this is a challenge that I won’t have trouble meeting “deadlines”.

My second reason is linked to the first: I think reading twelve Thriller/Suspense/Mystery books will not be a great challenge as I had already planned to read more in that genre, next to the romantic suspense I already read plentily and I suspect the romantic suspense genre also falls under the regulations of this challenge, so this will be a challenge that won’t be hard to meet at all.

For this challenge we are supposed to read 12 Thriller and Suspense Books. BCC, through J. Kaye has provided a list of sub-genres that work for this challenge. To view go HERE.

Find below the “work-in-progress”-list of my books for this challenge. Some have been and will be put in the list beforehand, others will be added along the way in the course of next year.

  1. I did a massive challenge this year and I promised myself I was going to relax and just read books for my enojyment in 2010 – but for all the reasons you mention – I am being persuaded more and more to give this one a shot…I am a lover of romantic suspense – most of my guilty pleasure authors are from this genre…E.H>
