Challenge Complete: Wishlist Challenge

Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com!
 
 The Wishlist Challenge was a new challenge that was meant to help us with our TBR wishlist books.  Those books that we come across on interwebs or friends suggest or sound good to us somewhere, some time and we think, "I ought to read that" or "I want to read that." And we never do.  So....we were supposed to

Read 12 books (one for every month of the year) that you would like to read, but don’t already have on your shelves.

And I have!  I'm now ready for all that honor and glory that Judith promised will shine on everyone who finishes!
 
Here's my list:
 
1. The War of the Worlds Murder by Max Allan Collins (4/19/12)
2. Nantucket Soap Opera by S. F. X. Dean (3/20/12)
3. A Slip of the Tong by Charles Goodrum (6/3/12)
4. The Gemini Man by Susan Kelly (4/15/12)
5. The Curious Cape Cod Skull by Marie Lee (3/21/12)
6. The Doctor Dines in Prague by Robin Hathaway (3/12/12)
7. Murder Most Puzzling by Lillian S. Robinson (10/23/12)
8. A Good Death by Elizabeth Ironside (3/28/12)
9. The Anatomy of Ghosts by Andrew Taylor (9/30/12)
11. The Lady in the Loch by Elizabeth Scarborough (5/23/12)
12. Lake of Sorrows by Erin Hart (10/14/12)

Honor! Glory!!

Well done, Bev. I think you did a good job here. Now I'm curious to know, were they worth reading? And which one did you like the best? Are there any that should have found their way to the bottom of the wishlist instead, never to be read at all?

Thanks for joining in!

Judith:

About half were well worth it: The War of the Worlds Murder, The Doctor Dines in Prague, A Good Death, The Ink Dark Moon were great. A Slip of the Tong, The Curious Cape Cod Skull, Lake of Sorrows, & The Lady in the Loch were decent. I could have done without Nantucket Soap Opera and The Anatomy of Ghosts. My favorite was A Good Death.
