2016 Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge

I wasn't going to sign up for any reading challenges this year - but then I saw the Cloak and Dagger challenge is being hosted by Stormi at Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!  and Barb from Booker T’s Farm. I couldn't resist. Rules: You can read any book that is from the mystery/suspense/thriller/crime genres. Any sub-genres are welcome as long as they incorporate one of these genres. You don’t need a blog to participate but you do need a place to post your reviews to link up. (blog, goodreads, booklikes, shelfari, etc.) Make a goal post and link it back tp the sign-up post with your goal for this challenge. Books need to be novellas or novels, please no short stories. (At least 100 pages +) Crossovers into other challenges is fine. Challenge will be from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. (Sign up ends April 15th) There will be a monthly link up.
