British Crime Classics Challenge 2020

I’ve decided to take on a few challenges for 2020 to encourage myself to read more this year. I’ll update my progress and of course write reviews on the wonderful (hopefully) books that I’ll be reading.

The last challenge I want to share with you is the 2020 British Crime Classics challenge hosted by the wonderful blog The Book Decoder. The challenge is dedicated to the classic crime novels we love so much. Be sure and check out her blog for more info if you think this sounds like a challenge you’d like to join.

Vintage Mystery Extravaganza 2020

Vintage Mystery Extravaganza (1)

Bev at My Reader’s Block hosts a Vintage Mystery Challenge each year. This year’s theme called Vintage Mystery Extravaganza to celebrate her ten year blogging anniversary.

Challenge participants will choose five books that follow Van Dine’s rules for detective fiction to complete the basic level. There is a bonus level option, as well. Each of these offers the option of either Golden Age or Silver Age books. I’ll be participating in the challenge and will do both Golden and Silver age for a total of 10 books. I’d also love to add on some for the bonus level, as well, so we will see if I can pull this off. 🙂

This will be my first challenge of Bev’s that I will have participated in and I can’t wait. I will keep everyone updated on my progress and will, of course, post reviews here on the blog.
