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.
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)
