So I think I may take part in my very first reading challenge. I heard about the Readers Imbibing Peril (V) Challenge from That's What She Read, and it's hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings.
"It is time to celebrate things that go bump in the night; that favorite detective that always gets his man, or woman, in the end; that delicious chill of a creak on the stairs, of the rogue waiting in the dark, of the full moon and the flit of bats wings."
I just got done wandering around the house trying to find some mystery/horror/scary books, and I've got quite the pile. Basically, you pick scary books (scary is subjective) and read them between September 1 and October 31. There are several different levels, from 1 book to 4, and then a category for short story readers and scary movie buffs as well.
I think I will be shooting for the highest level, since I've got a fairly extensive list of books that I can read. I don't imagine I'll get through all of them, but I certainly have choices.
Cover Her Face by PD James(review)
- Bitten by Kelly Armstrong
- Death in Holy Orders by PD James
Changeless by Gail Carriger(review)
Blameless by Gail Carriger(review)
- The Darkness That Comes Before by R Scott Bakker
- The Witching Hour by Anne Rice
- Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake
The Red Tree by Caitlin R Kiernan(review) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins(review)
The best part about all of these is they are all books I own! I've been saying that I wanted to make a dent in all the books I've bought and haven't read yet but this time I might actually do it. Here's a link to the challenge page where you can post your link and reading list if you want.
What books are on your list?
