2017 Follow the Clues Headquarters


Brand new for 2017! My Reader's Block is proud to introduce the Follow the Clues Mystery Challenge. Here you will find a link to the original sign-up and information post. I will also link up a post for each month's reviews. The link will be open a few days into the next month. If you miss posting reviews in a certain month, feel free to add those reviews to future links. The final wrap-up--which should be presented as evidence before the court--will go live towards the end of the year. Good luck!

Present your Evidence (final wrap-up)

I've got a question, Bev. At least in my case, I'm thinking instead of picking my next mystery read based on the thread of evidence, to keep track of all my mystery reads and then find the thread after. Does that work with your ideas for the challenge, or ...?

Bev Hankins said...

Well...actually...No. My idea was that each book would lead to the next one. From the original sign-up post:

"Your goal? To follow a set of clues furnished by the mystery books you read to create a body of evidence to support a book court case. Each book clue should lead you to your next read."

And then I give examples of how one book can lead to another.

Of course, I'm probably not going to be checking up on how closely your books follow one another. So, I'm not sure how I'd really check on this.

Not doing too well at this. Read two but the next couple didn't have anything I could connect it to so I guess I'm out already :(

Peggy Ann: Put your investigation on hold until you can make a connection. I don't mind if you skip over a few books--I just don't want anybody reading all year long and then looking back through all the books they read and making a case. I was hoping it would be more of an adventure connecting books along the way.

I've reached infraction level with 6 connected mysteries. Two of the books I read have eight clues in common! Here's a link to my post on GR
