RIP Challenge

So apparently in the book-blogging world there are these things called “challenges,” in which readers challenge themselves to complete a group of books within a set of parameters. I like it. I’m going to do some. 🙂

Since I’m nearly finished with a ghost story, my first challenge will be the RIP Challenge hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings.

Pretty picture!

I’m challenging myself to Carl’s “Peril the First”: Four books from any subgenre of scary stories, to be read between now and Hallowe’en. Those subgenres include mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic, horror, and supernatural.

My pool of books to choose from:
Tamsin, by Peter S. Beagle
Ritual, by Mo Hayder
Misery, by Stephen King
Grave Peril, by Jim Butcher
The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield
The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
…and possibly others yet to be determined.

Books actually read:

1. Tamsin, by Peter S. Beagle (Review)
2. Misery, by Stephen King (Review)
3. Afterlife, by Douglas Clegg (Review)
4. Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer (Review)
5. The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield (Review)

One thought on “RIP Challenge

  1. Carl V. says:

    Welcome, I am so excited that you are participating in this!!! Your pool of potential reads is terrific. I fell hard for Thirteenth Tale. That is such a great book. I have Shadow of the Wind in my pile as well, I’ve heard many good things about that book. I look forward to seeing and reading about whatever books you decide to read for the challenge.
