My kind of mystery 2014 Reading Challenge


Just got a comment from Carolyn, at Riedel Fascination, another great lover of Dorothy Gilman! So I can’t resist, and to support her, I’m joining her reading challenge for 2014!
That’s perfect to replace the Cozies Challenge I did last year, and any time of mystery will fit.

Here’s How It Works

Between Feb 1, 2014 and February 28, 2015, I will try to read between 11-20 mysteries, that’s the Unearthing Clues level. I will first finish the Mrs. Pollifax series:

  1. Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore, by Robin Sloan
  2. The Kabbalist, by Yoram Katz
  3. Nightmare in Burgundy, by Alaux and Balen
  4. The Man With The Lead Stomach, by Jean-François Parot
  5. The Girl in the Empty Dress, by Lise McClendon
  6. Baudelaire’s Revenge, by Bob Van Laerhoven
  7. Murder in Pigalle, by Cara Black
  8. Death in Pont-Aven, by Jean-Luc Bannalec
  9. Moon in a Dead Eye, by Pascal Garnier
  10. The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair, by Joel Dicker
  11. Mrs. Pollifax Pursued, by Dorothy Gilman
  12. Mrs. Pollifax and the Lion Killer, by Gilman
  13. Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled, by Gilman
  14. Crossing The Line, by Frédérique Molay
  15. The Phantom of Rue Royale, by Jean-François Parot
  16. Death at the Fair, by Frances McNamara
  17. Bed of Nails, by Antonin Varenne
  18. Irène, by Pierre Lemaitre
  19. Alex, by Pierre Lemaitre
  20. Silent Night, by Mary Higgins Clark
  21. The Monogram Murders, by Sophie Hannah
  22. Still Life, by Louise Penny
  23. The Unquiet Bones, by Mel Starr
  24. Murder in Montmartre, by Cara Black

  1. You know, if you finish “Therapy Of Spiritual Illnesses” closer to Feb 1, it fits “Ethereal”. However I’m here to thank you for being my energy-raising, newest guest in “My Kind Of Mystery”! There will be riddles throughout the year I’ve had fun drumming up, with cute prizes from my home for all three groups. If you do obtain Dorothy’s rare, Canadian-based, autobiography it counts too. My mystery theme is unusual because I’m inviting *everything* to do with mystery authors, even if it’s a tell-all. It’s a great pleasure to know you, Emma. Carolyn.

    • hello my friend – anyone reading Emily Pollifax can only be my friend, lol. just left a comment on your post, but it did not even say it was awaiting moderation, so not sure it went through. I was recommending you to listen to the audiobooks, all read by Barbara Rosenblat, just phenomenal!
