2012 Reading Challenge: Read an Entire Mystery Series
Sister Mary Murderous challenges you to pick a mystery series and read every book in the series this year. To identify all the books in a series in publication order, be sure to visit Stop You're Killing Me.
Feel free to choose to re-read a series. With the passage of time and all that wisdom about life you've earned since you first read the books, you might find fresh insights––or that the series now falls flat for you. Speaking of which, if you choose a series and find it doesn't work for you, just quit and start a new one.
I was tempted to re-read Dorothy L. Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey series, but that would be too easy and obvious a choice for me. Not to mention that I'd be doing it anyway, challenge or no challenge. I've decided that this is the perfect opportunity for me to fill in one of the many gaps in my reading history. I think what I'm going to choose is Magdalen Nabb's Marshal Guarnaccia series. Any comments on that choice?
