Mystery & Suspense Challenge 2011

I did such a bang up job on this challenge last year, I figured why not give it another go.  So I'm signing up for the Mystery & Suspense Challenge 2011 hosted once again by Carolyn of Book Chick City.

The rules are the same as last year, but I will let Carolyn explain them to you:

Sign Up

•To sign up 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. 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. (Yes, all participants get a free ARC!)

•You must add the button to your sidebar - make sure that it links back to this post so others can join the challenge if they wish. Easiest way to do this is to copy and paste the code displayed above!

Other Details

•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.

So those are the rules and I can't wait to get started.  I'm going to try harder this year to post my wrap-up once I'm done with the 12 books though and not wait until I've read 3 times that amount.

Carolyn comes up with the BEST challenges! I didn't sign up for this one as I'm not a big mystery fan, but signed up for several others. Good luck!
