Where did 2017 go! I can’t believe it’s already time to do sign ups for 2018! I hope everyone who participated this year read a lot of great mystery, suspense, and thrillers. I know I did and I found a lot of new series!

I don’t know about you all but I read a lot of mysteries this year. Most of them being cozies but I also found some great new mystery series to try. Hope you all found some great new authors or series to try! I don’t know how many of you tried to challenge yourselves this year to finish or at least catch up to a series but I did pretty good. I at least got caught up on about 4 series which is pretty good for me. I am close to catching up on some more but I have a long ways to go before catching up on all of them!! 🙂

This year Barb wants to play a game some time during the year. It’s sort of a mystery game but we haven’t tweaked it just yet so it doesn’t have a name but I wanted you to get ready in case you like to play games. It will all involve reading mysteries but just doing so in a fun way. 🙂

My Goal:

I will be doing the Sherlock Holmes level as it seems I am on a mystery kick.

Hope to see you all join in on the fun and sign up for the Cloak and Dagger Challenge.

Sign up for the 2018 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge.

  1. Well, wah and hoo! Or: you’re either a mad scientist with a cast iron stomach or a BIG glutton (for punishment!). I hope those one hundred year old sandwiches are that way in recipe form alone. If not, you’ll take a bite and perhaps wake up back in the silent era yourself.

    Say… waitamminit. That gives me an idea! While you’re there in the past, pick up a few reels of “lost” films before they get lost. You know what to look for. 😀
