This is the collective Group Challenge for The Annual Challenge for 2019 where, between us, we are looking to read a book published every year since 1920.

To get a book added to the challenge post it below when you have read it, giving the book title, author and the year it was published. I will then allocate it to the right year. Feel free to keep adding books even if the year has already been covered, as it will be interesting to see which is the most popular year for books during the past hundred years.

For the challenge in this group only post mystery, suspense or thriller books. If you want to post books from other genres put them on the similar Challenge on the Read It, Track It Group.

This isn't primarily a mystery book, but there is a mystery in it. I would consider it primarily YA, but also fantasy (supernatural). There is definitely a mystery going on, though, so I thought I'd post here.

>60 Andrew-theQM: There is a DVD documentary about Shackleton's journey. While it's fascinating and very informative, you have to pity those poor men that found themselves stranded in that God forsaken place. They said it took him months in the small boat to try to find land and help for those he had to leave behind. He was amazed that more weren't dead when he was finally able to return.

Question - for those of you who read Bird Box by Josh Malerman would you consider this a mystery/suspense novel? The labels in Goodreads have it as a mystery and a psychological thriller but the primary descriptions are Horror, Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic. Just wondering what you thought since I'm not far enough in to have an opinion yet.

Jan 14, 2019, 6:32am

>63 bhabeck: I think you could call it mystery & suspense. Everyone knows the creatures are out there but it's a mystery & suspense situation as to just what they re going to do...will they find Melanie and her children or any of the others that attempt to escape? I don't know how far into it you are so don't want to say too much about the things that happen after the escape but I would call it mystery & suspense...or at least mystery/horror

>67 Carol420: haven't gotten that far but both kids seem a bit off. of course, that could just be a result of the circumstances. They're only a few hours into the river journey and in the flashback, she's only been at the house for a couple of days...the kids haven't been born yet. So far, it's interesting but I could just slap Malorie in some of the flashbacks -- she's SUCH a mouse!

>89 Andrew-theQM: Yes...I know. I completely missed it the first time I tried to tell it wasn't Peter Robinson's book. Then every site I reviewed the book on I had to search for it again through over 85 books and authors. There should be some kind of law that says author's can't have the same first names or books the same titles. I guess we'd have run out a long time ago if that was the case:)

This is enormous already and it's only one month's worth from basically 9 people. I am impressed. This challenge has been an overwhelming success already as it has brought people out that have been members for years and now they are coming forward and participating.

>253 Andrew-theQM: I'm still on the waitlist at OpenLibrary for the book I want but I have others with the same publication date so we're good. Though I suspect with the way Sergei is working his way through the decades, he may beat me to it. :) If the one I have on hold doesn't come in the next week, I'll move on to something else - maybe a standalone Christie since I'm not to that point on Poirot yet...or there was an old woman, an Ellery Queen mystery

But don’t let that stop anyone reading the books they have got targeted. You could finish it up Brenda if you get the 1943 book, still researching that year myself.

Frustratingly Agatha Christie had 3 books published in 1942 and four books published n 1944, but none published in 1943 - according to Fantastic Fiction..

257bhabeck
Dec 1, 2019, 10:27am

>255 Andrew-theQM: I started out well with the challenge and then got sidetracked with newer books when I started working my way through a couple of series (Witchless in Seattle by Dakota Cassidy, Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear, Hanover House by Brenda Novak, Mike Bowditch by Paul Doiron, to name just a few!). But I have to say that I did find some new authors by reading some of the classics - Marsh, Christie, etc though I have definitely decided that the "hard boiled" mysteries of the 50's like Chandler and Hammett are not my thing.

258bhabeck
Edited: Dec 1, 2019, 10:35am

>256 Andrew-theQM: I know. That was part of my problem (that and the fact that I don't like to ROO). I even used the Edgar Awards to find a few of the books for this challenge but they don't go back that far

I think I'll just go with the Ellery Queen book for 1943 while I wait for the other one on Open Library -

259Sergeirocks
Dec 1, 2019, 10:36am

I've got a 1943 book waiting for me at the library.

>258 bhabeck: >259 Sergeirocks: It has been a good experience all round, and made clear the difference between authors and books from the earlier decades and today. In the older crime series it certainly doesn’t seem to make any difference if you ROO. Found the older books set the scene fir a loottt longer. Unlike modern books that tend to be straight in there with a murder.
