Could I have June, please? The theme I have in mind is "detectives in translation"

I'm not sure if I'll host this time or not, but I would like to follow along, as I'll likely participate.

Could I do November for Gothic Mysteries, please and thank you!

>10 Tess_W: wouldn't gothic fit more with October/Halloween?

>11 cyderry: I thought so, but thought somebody might have a better topic than me for Halloween. I'm fine with either, October or November!

I'll take January and start us off with Series, something I am always working on!

If you need me I can do a month whenever you need it. Would cold case murders work?

I will choose my month and topic after others get a chance to select theirs.

I'll take February to cover the first 4 months. And I'll go with cold case murders.

I'd be willing to take a second month for, say, technothrillers?

32lowelibrary

I will host an animal mystery month. A book where one of the crime solvers is an animal. I would like September.

Ill take August then.

I should be able to find stuff for most months with the possible exception of technothrillers. It's not a genre where I spend much time reading. I'll probably begin looking through some of the books on my 2022 intended reading list to see which ones fit which category.

37LadyoftheLodge

>31 majkia: Can you explain more about technothrillers?

38majkia
Bewerkt: nov 2, 2021, 10:34am

>37 LadyoftheLodge: Sure.
Think of technothrillers as any fiction where technology is a part of the plot and impacts the outcome. So Tom Clancy, James Rollins, Michael Chrichton, Blake Crouch, Steig Larson are examples, but any book that uses tech as an important aspect will work.

Also, I'd comment that books about Blechley Park and turing devices definitely work. A lot of spy novels will work.

>38 majkia: Thanks! That helps our group members plan their reading.

Looks like a fun year of mysteries! Some of these themes will get me to look into stuff I don't normally go to.

41LadyoftheLodge

Thanks again for all who volunteered to host. We have an interesting list of topics. Looking forward to reading in 2022.

Because of family stuff, June is not looking good as a month for me to host. Would anybody be willing to swap months?

43Tanya-dogearedcopy
nov 28, 2021, 10:04pm

>42 Robertgreaves: I'll swap you out! I'm already hosting another monthly challenge in May, so a swap out would make my life a little easier. Let me know if that will work :-)
