my reads for 2012 Artful readers challenge

In one of my previous posts I said I was going to do the Artful readers challenge that Darcy is doing for next year. We are to pick 12 books out and read 1 a month and at then when you are finished with the book write a small review and also do a piece of art based on the book you read. I picked out my 12 books. it was pretty easy as I picked a bunch out in my to be read pile in a drawer and have them on a shelf. I had 11 already out, so just needed to find one more. Here are the 12.


In no order in how I will read them in 2013

A brisket a Casket by Delia Rowen
Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich
The Case of the Ill-Gotten Goat by Claudia Bishop
Buffalo West Wing by Julie Hyzy
Delicious Suspicious by Riley Adams
Skein of the Crime by Maggie Sefton
Scoop to Kill by Wendy Lyn Watson
Buttercream Bump Off by Jenn McKinlay
False Impressions by Terri Thayer
Big Hair and Flying cows by Delores J. Wilson
Killer Curise by Laura Levine
The Teaberry Strangler by Laura Childs

Yes they are all cozy mysteries, but 1. and yes a lot of them are food related. lol I hope I am able to zip them month by month.

First book I am going to read is Killer Cruise by Lara Levine  I read the book previous to this one in the series last month. If i have more than one book in a series together I like to read them in order. lol I'm weird like that. :D
