  2. You did a great job, Carrie! And you read some great titles! I ended up reading 25 crime fiction novels this year and while I intended to read one in every sub-category, I didn’t manage it.

      Wendy – I knew I’d never hit all the sub-genres, but I had fun reading a variety anyway. 🙂

    Congrats on surpassing your challenge by a mile! Flynn’s book, Tana French’s and perhaps Kepler’s look good to me. Enjoy the holiday season
