2018 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge - Sign Up

I've participated in this challenge every year and I'm ready to do it again in 2018. I love reading mysteries...This reading challenge is hosted by Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My!

Here's the details...

Challenge 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.

You don’t need a blog to participate but you do need a place to post your reviews to link up. (blog, goodreads, booklikes, shelfari, etc.)

Make a goal post and link it back here with your goal for this challenge.

Books need to be novellas or novels, please no short stories. (At least 100 pages +)

Crossovers into other challenges are fine.

The Challenge will be from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. (Sign up ends April 15th)

There will be a monthly link up so that others can check out your progress and look at your reviews. At the halfway mark and at the end we will have a giveaway for those participating.

If you tweet about your progress or reviews please use the hashtag #CloakDaggerChal so others can see it.

  1. I think I may join this one as well! I'm still thinking over what I want to do for reading resolutions this year :)

  2. I'm so glad that you are joining again!

  3. I signed up for this again too. I almost feel like it's cheating though, since I tend to read mysteries anyway, no challenge needed.

After some careful consideration, I've decided to become an award-free blog. Although I appreciate and am honored by each and every award I've received, your comments and friendship are enough award for me. Thank you all so much for your thoughtfulness.
