2009 Suspense & Thriller Reading Challenge

This challenge can be found here at J. Kaye's Book Blog (which is a wonderful site and she has lots of giveaways). Reviews are also linked at the blog post. Also descriptions of the different types of suspense/thriller books are in the post mentioned above.

Rules of this challenge:

* 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 crossover into other challenges.

I'm joining late (but you can join anytime, so it's not really late), but I have already read the following (book covers are at the bottom):

  1. Fragment by Warren Fahy - Sci-Fi Thriller - Review
  2. Missing Pieces by Joy Fielding - Psychological Thriller - Review coming soon
  3. Ghostwriter by Travis Thrasher - Supernatural Thriller - Review
  4. Deadfall by Robert Liparulo - Action Thriller - Review
  5. Trial by Fire by Jo Davis - Romantic Thriller - Review
  6. Threshold by Bonnie Kozek - Hard-boiled mystery - Review
  7. 14 by J.T. Ellison - Serial Killer Thriller - Review
  8. The Tenth Case by Joseph Teller - Legal Thriller - Review coming soon
  9. Fertile Ground by Ben Mezrich - Medical Thriller - Review coming soon
  10. The Last Ember by Daniel Levin - Conspiracy Thriller - Review coming soon
  11. Reunion in Death by J. D. Robb - Futuristic Thriller - Review
  12. Alex Cross's Trial by James Patterson - Historical Thriller - Review coming soon

Only three more to go and three reviews to write - I figured this would be a fairly easy challenge to me as I love suspense and mysteries. Now to figure out which other three types I want to read. I have expanded this year - I didn't really do hard-boiled before and not to many sci-fi thrillers, but I will be adding more of both to my tbr from now on.

Update - 8/31/09 - challenge complete - though I think I will continue and see how many different sub-genres I can read. And I have to finish the reviews.
