R.I.P. Challenge

lavinia-portraitRIP92751It’s that time of the year again! Carl V. is once again hosting the fabulous Readers Imbibing in Peril challenge – this is the 9th year. Can you believe it?

I may be far behind on my reading goals and challenges but that won’t stop me from signing up for this one. I love spooky stories and this time of the year so sign me up. There are several levels of participation and I’m going to shoot for Peril the Second.

This means I get to read two books of any length that fit the R.I.P. categories which are mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic, horror and supernatural. I’m also going to try and do Peril of the Short Story.

I do read a lot of mysteries but for this challenge I try to read books that more traditional horror, thriller or suspense stories. You know, make myself go outside of my comfort zone. I haven’t decided which books to read but I do have some good choices to choose from.

Here is a sampling of some of the books I have on hand:

Haunted Castles by Ray Russell
The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories by H.P. Lovecraft
Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake
Don’t Look Now by Daphne Du Maurier

I have quite a few other books that would be perfect for the challenge so I can’t wait to go digging through the bookshelves. Let me know if you’ve read one of these and think I should read it for the challenge. I know a lot of you guys are participating so have fun and can’t wait to hear about your spooky reads.
