This challenge comes from the Dead Writers Society on Goodreads. For each month a different genre has been listed.
Rule: Select a title written by a dead author for the genre of the month.
Goal: 24 books ~ Goal achieved reached 28 books for this challenge.
Some of these books I didn't quite finish in the correct month, but I attempted to. Mostly because I was behind at finishing before the month ended. One book was read early because it came in from the library ahead of schedule. See the list by clicking "Read More."
