This year Rekha @ The Book Decoder has been hosting The British Crime Classics Challenge, and she’s all set to do it again in 2020.
The rules of the challenge are simple. The books that you read must be from the Crime/Mystery, and Thrillers genre. Any subgenrr is allowed, but because this is a Classics challenge the books must be written before 1965. Rekha’s original post is HERE. She’s provided lots of information about what, where, and how, so give it a look.
This page will contain the links to the reviews for the books I’ve read as a part of the challenge. Check in on my progress if you get the chance!
