RIP IV Challenge

I've been looking forward to this challenge all year. I love reading seasonal books - but my favorites would be spooky for Halloween and tear jerkers around the holidays. That's just me, of course. So Carl V. at Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting the R.I.P. (the fourth) Challenge again this year... so excited. And yes, I am in. I am going with:

Read 4 books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose.

Should be easy enough since my shelves are brimming with all sorts of paranormal, gothic, dark fantasy and horror novels. I'm sure I'll do more the four before the end of October though.

Here's a list of some of the titles I'll be reading. Of course changes and additions are to come:
-Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
-The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
-Bad Moon Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon
-Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith
-A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
-Tombstone Tea by Joanne Dahme
-City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
-Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
-Immortal by Gillian Shields

I didn't realize some of those were "scary" books.. I may have to consider this challenge.

Jenny, I have a very broad definition of what fits into the gothic fiction that this challenge embraces, so please come over and check out the post. Would love to have you join in.

Nely, I am the same as you. I love seasonal reading, most especially during these last 4 months of the year. I am so glad that you are excited about it and are joining in. You do have a great list of potential reads there and I have no doubt you will really enjoy the next two months.

That is a great list of books! Loved The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Am loving Her Fearful Symmetry (reading it now). A Great and Terrible Beauty is really good too. And City of Ashes! I love Cassandra Clare. I want to read the Zink too! Good luck and have fun!

Looks like many of us will be reading Her Fearful Symmetry! I worry about it not meeting my unreasonable expectations, but so far everyone who's read it says it actually does!

Amanda said...

So many good books! I have Tombstone Tea on my list, too. The Forest of Hands and Teeth and A Great and Terrible Beauty are both so good.
