Sweet Southern Challenge 2019

UPDATE: 2/13/2019–Since I’m almost at my goal, I’m going to go for A Gallon Glass of Sweet Tea, 13+ books.

I love a good cozy mystery set in the South! Like the last book I posted about, Batter Off Dead, which was set in Kentucky. While scrolling a master list of reading challenges, I found the Sweet Southern Challenge run by Readeropolis blog (sign up in their comments). #SweetSouthernRC  From the Readeropolis blog:

“There are five reading levels for this challenge.

  • One Glass of Sweet Tea: Read 1 – 3 Books
  • Two Glasses of Sweet Tea: Read 4 – 6 Books
  • Three Glasses of Sweet Tea: Read 7 – 9 Books
  • A Pitcher of Sweet Tea: Read 10 – 12 Books
  • A Gallon Glass of Sweet Tea: Read 13 or More Books

I recommend you use the link above and read the whole post. You don’t need a blog to participate, only a link of where you’ll keep track, like a Goodreads shelf.

My revised level will be A Gallon Glass of Sweet Tea, and I’ll list the books here, starting with one I just finished and blogged about.
