Challenge Accepted: Read Harder 2017

Challenge #3: Read a book about books

A new year means new year resolutions and challenges. One reading challenge that I love to do is Book Riot’s 2017 Read Harder challenge. Instead of having people focus on a specific number of books, Read Harder challenges people to read different genres or authors that they may overlook.

Unlikely YA Detectives

These teens didn’t plan on becoming detectives, but that won’t stop them solving these mysteries!

Being a detective isn’t what it seems like. These teens aren’t like Veronica Mars, who wants to be a private eye - they had to become detectives - either as a favor, to avenge a family member, or to protect themselves. But even if they didn’t want to be a detective before, there’s no denying that all of these protagonists are natural born sleuths and they’ll do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of a mystery.
