Suspense and thriller type of books are one of my top favorites when it comes to reading. When I go inside a bookstore, I always leave with a heart-stopping, action-filled book in hand. Truth to be told, I have a lot of these kinds of books in my shelves.
With that, I would like to carry out my intention of reducing my TBR pile. To realize this, I am participating in another book reading challenge.
Hosted by J.Kaye over at her book blog, the 2009 Suspense & Thriller Reading Challenge is adopting various sub-genres.
Check here for the list of suspense & thriller sub-genres.
- Read TWELVE (12) different sub-genres of thrillers in 2009.
- You do NOT need to select your books ahead of time. Also, you may change as you go.
- Your books can cross-over into other challenges.
- You don't need a blog to join in this challenge. For those who do, this is important. When you sign up under Mr. Linky, list the direct link to your post where your S/T books will be listed. If you list just your blog's URL, it will be removed.
Like the YA Reading Challenge which I'm also participating into, I opted to jot down my list beforehand as guide.
