2016 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge

Since I have always been a huge fan of mystery/thriller novels,
this is another of the challenges in which I will enlist for 2016!
And since one of 2016 reading goals is to read/reread mystery series,
this is perfect!!
Click here to follow along on my Cloak and Dagger page!

This is being hosted by Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!
and Barb @ Booker T's Farm

And since I've already read the first six books in Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series, 
plan to finish reading Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series and Albert's China Bayles series, and plan to reread McCall Smith's #1 Ladies' Detectives and Isabel Dalhousie series, I'm in!!
With that list I am definitely aiming for Special Agent: Lynn!


                                         Amateur Sleuth              1-10 books

                                               Detective                  11-20 books

                                               Inspector                   21-30 books

  1. curious to see what you will read for this challenge

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I plan to finish reading Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series, Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series, then into McCall Smith's #1 Ladies' Detective Agency and Isabel Dalhousie series, and Albert's China Bayles series. :) It will be fun to see how many I read in one year's time! :) I own all but the Rosenfelt series which I've been checking out of the library as I go, so part of my #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge is to allow myself to read these mystery series that I have collected, but straight through in their entirety. I really enjoy that!
