My 52 Week Challenge

My Reading & Reviewing Goals for 2023

This year I set myself the challenge of reading and reviewing 52 books. I've read over 50 books a year in the past but I've never reviewed 52 books in one year. This will be a solid challenge as I usually like to give some thought to my longer reviews, and this, of course, takes time. So we'll see what happens.

My 52 Week Challenge: Read and Review 52 Books in 2023

Note: The books listed below are in approximate 'finished reading' order, not review order. Links will take you to my reviews either here on this blog, or my spec fic blog, or on Goodreads. I'm adding to the list every week or so, by the way. This is not a weekly discipline but a year-long challenge! (grin)

By the way, I'm a writer too! Check out my latest cozy mystery, Secrets & Scents by Lyn Perry - free to read in Kindle Unlimited.

Best friends Kelli & Jo quit their day jobs in Silicon Valley to open a book and candle shop in Sugar Pine Station, a quaint and quiet mountain village near Yosemite, California.

As they begin renovations, Kelli discovers a mysterious bundle of letters hidden away for over forty years. Each envelope contains an enigmatic prophecy, the first one predicting an Opening Day disaster.

Now Kelli & Jo are forced to put on their sleuthing caps if they want to save their business. Will more tragedies strike? And will they unravel the secrets of the mysterious letters?

Secrets & Scents is Book 1 in a brand new cozy mystery series by Lyn Perry and features many of the endearing and quirky characters of Sugar Pine Station that fans have grown to love from the Ma Tutt cozies, including Mack the Mysterious Cat.
