Reading Challenge: Cloak and Dagger Mystery Reading Challenge

It's hard to pass up a twofer like this, so I am entering another mystery reading challenge for 2015.  The Cloak and Dagger Challenge applies to any mystery, not just the cozies like the first one I signed up for.  That will probably be the majority of the ones I read, but since I do intend to listen to more on audio this year (more on that in another challenge post today), I will definitely be adding the mysteries I listen to here.

April 12th Update: The challenge is now being hosted by Thoughts from an Evil Overlord.  Thanks for taking this on!

This one really is as easy as it sounds.  You just need to read mysteries.  My favorite genre.  How hard could this really be for me, right?

That's why I am going to sign up for Miss Marple, which is 30 books.  I could probably go with Sherlock Holmes, the highest at 40+.  In fact, I am quite tempted to do that.  But I will resist the temptation.  March 20th Update:  I have already reached 20, so I am going to go for Sherlock Holmes, which is 40+ mysteries this year.  I don't see that being an issue.

Of course, I will list the books I read as I finish and review them here.
