Mystery/Crime Book Reading Challenge

As some of you may know, I linked the ultimate reading challenge in my 2016 bucket list post. I had fallen in love with the idea of a reading challenge where you could pick the books your read, so I though I’d create one of my own.

Seeing as horror, thriller, crime and mystery are my favourite genres of basically anything, I though I’d do two reading challenge lists; a horror/thriller and a crime/mystery list.

Below is the Mystery/Crime reading challenge list. Find the Horror/Thriller reading challenge here.

The idea of this list is to pick a book within the mystery/crime genre, that also follows the prompts. For example The Doll’s House by M. J. Arlidge is a New York Times best seller within the mystery/crime genre.
