Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting a great challenge called R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge, or R.I.P.
It is time to celebrate things that go bump in the night; that favorite detective that always gets his man, or woman, in the end; that delicious chill of a creak on the stairs, of the rogue waiting in the dark, of the full moon and the flit of bats wings.
R.I.P. V officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.
I decided to participate in two Perils. Peril the First: Read four books, any length, that you feel fits my very broad definition of scary. Short Story Peril: You can read short stories any time during the challenge.
For Peril the First, I intend to read the following:
Charlaine Harris: Grave Sight
Neil Gaiman: The Graveyard Book
Henry James: The Turn of the Screw
Danielle Trussoni: Angelology
Now I have a reason to FINALLY read these books.
For Short Story Peril, I definitely see Poe in the picture, as well as Sheridan Le Fanu, and even some Oscar Wilde. Whatever comes my way that fits into this challenge, I'll read it.
I love September and October, they are my favourite months of the year, and autumn is just bliss, so this challenge is just perfect.
