Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings has once again opened up the R.I.P. Challenge. It’s one of the first signs of fall, and the challenge provides the perfect excuse opportunity for indulging in works befitting the season.
I will participate in Peril the First, which requires the reader to read four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose. I have to warn you I’ve never actually finished this challenge before. Cross your fingers for me, OK?
I am not sure which four books I plan to read, but one of them (is it cheating?) will be Dracula because I’ve already started it. I might try to finish Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian and/or Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, but I’m not sure, and beyond these potential books I’m not sure which others I will read, but watch this space. I’ll think about it some more and post an update here. Feel free to make recommendations for spooky, gothic, or scary books I can add to my list of potentials.
