Belinda’s Book Nook: March Mystery Madness

It’s that time of year again. March Mystery Madness has begun. For the past few years I been participating in a reading challenge for the month of March. For the entire month, you are encouraged to read mysteries. This year they have prompts to make it more challenging.

The prompts are:

1 Old – Could be a book that is really old, or old-fashioned like an old cozy crime.

2 Again – Could be something you re-read or maybe the word again is in the title.

3 New – Could be any book new to you or a new release.

4 Borrowed – Could be a book borrowed from the library or a friend, etc.

5 Blue – The book could be colored blue, the title could have the word blue in it, or blues music.

Optional bonus – Read a mystery that features a wedding or wedding preparations.

I like the prompts but I have already grabbed some options from my shelf as you can see in the pictures so I will see if any fit in with the prompts. I definitely have old, new and borrowed. I don’t have time to re-read books so I know that one is off the table for me. For me I just like the idea of reading mysteries all month. Right now I am listening to an audio mystery called, “Murder in G. Major and I started a book I borrowed from the library called, “Land of Shadow (A Detective Elouise Norton Mystery).  So I will update you on what I read in early April. Feel free to suggest a mystery if you read one you like.

Happy reading!

Another 2018 Reading Challenge: 52 Comics

Well if you visited recently you might have heard about the Literary Around the World Challenge that I am participating in for 2018 to take my reading adventures around the globe. I have decided to add one more challenge. (For someone who doesn’t like the stress that most often occurs from challenges, I sure am soaking them up at the start of this year!) I found the idea from Book Riot but it aligns so nicely with my desire to connect more with my oldest son. He enjoys reading comics and each summer for the past few years we even go to the annual Comic-Con. So I decided I will read one comic a week for the year. It doesn’t sound too hard. So I will post updates monthly of the comics I select to read.

Here is a peek at my first comic I read last week is a comic I bought at the most recent Comic-con from the author and illustrator. I even got their signature. I will be back later this month to share more about this comic and the other three comics I select.

Happy reading!

Belinda
