Mystery and Suspense Challenge 2011

The Mystery and Suspense Challenge 2011 is hosted by Book Chick City.  (My first 2011 challenge, yea!  )  To sign up do the following:
  • You MUST make a post on your blog about participating in the challenge - you then use the URL of the post to sign up to the challenge by adding it to Mr Linky at BCC's  post for this challenge.  DO NOT just add your blog URL - this will be deleted. Also please be aware that unless you show you are joining the challenge with a participation post your ARC will not be sent.
  • Post the challenge button on your side bar, ensuring it links back to the challenge page on BCCs website.

ARC?  ARC?  Yes, you read correctly, everyone who participates will receive an ARC of The Survivor by Sean Slatter, courtesy of Simon & Schuster.  Pretty cool, huh?
Here are the details of the challenge (copied from the challenge sign-up page):

•Timeline: 01 Jan 2011 - 31 Dec 2011

•Rules: To read TWELVE (12) mystery & suspense novels in 2011 (12 is the minimum but you can read more if you wish!)

•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 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 next year.

•At the beginning of Jan 2011, you will find a link to specific month to add your reviews. There will be a monthly prize too courtesy of the lovely Simon & Schuster - you must be signed up to the challenge and add the link to your review to be entered into the monthly prize draw.

Now, there are many different sub-genres of mystery and suspense - you can choose from the numerous sub-genres, from cosy mysteries such as Agatha Christie to the more hard-boiled kind like V I Warshawski by Sara Paretsky, or romantic suspense written by the likes of Linda Howard, forensic crime such as those written by Kathy Reichs and even paranormal/supernatural suspense such as Kelley Armstrong. I'm sure this challenge will have something for everyone! :) 

Book Chick City has also provided an explanation of the various sub-genres in a post on her blog.  Click here for the post.

Sounds like fun, doesn't it?  Come join the fun.
