RIP V Challange


I have (once again) been looking forward to this challenge all year long. This is one of my favorite challenges because it gets me in that Halloween mood (and some of you should know this is one of my favorite holidays). Carl V. at Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting the R.I.P. (the fifth) Challenge again this year! I love spooky, scary and horror-filled stories around this time of year.  So this challenge is always one I like to partake of.  This year I will once again challenge myself to :

Read four books, any length, that you feel fits my very broad definition of scary. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming or Edgar Allan Poe…or anyone in between.

Here is my list of potential reads:
- City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare  (dark fantasy)
- Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie (ghost story)
- The Fall by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan (horror)
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (gothic)
- Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus (mystery)
- Torment by Lauren Kate (gothic)
- Tales of Terror from the Black Ship - Chris Priestley (horror / shorts)

I'm sure there will be changes and additions, but for now these are the one's I'm considering.

R.I.P. V officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.  You want to join - here's the sign-up post.

oooo...really solid list! Some creepy and atmospheric stuff there. Whatever you choose to read, I hope all your reading for the challenge is a ball. Thanks for signing up again.

Wuthering Heights is one of my favourite classics.

Do check out the books I already read for RIP V. Also you will find my tentative read list.

Wuthering Heights is a great fall read.

I've never heard of the Jennifer Crusie on your list! Is it a new one? I must keep my eyes open for it. Thanks for the tip, and happy reading!

@Kate - Yes, if I'm not mistaken this new Jennifer Crusie just came out this week. It sounds really cute too - not very scary for the contest, but since there is a ghost involved, I threw it in there anyway. :)

I like seeing what everyone is reading for this challenge. you have some good ones! I've always wanted to read the Priestly books.
Have fun!

I am hoping to read The Fall, too! I had forgotten it was out, but reading lists reminded me. So, now just have to wait for the library to process it since it is still on order!
