It's that time of year again. The time for gothic, spooky, thrilling reads. No matter how many challenges I'm drowning in, I wouldn't miss Carl's annual R.I.P. Challenge. (Click on the button for more info). It's nice that it's been unusually cool for the last couple of days as it really puts me in an autumn mood.
I'm going to try for Peril the First, which means reading four books (chosen from the genres of Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural) between September 1st and October 31st, and here is the pool of books I'll most likely read from, unless something else crosses my path.
Three Shadows - Cyril Pedrosa
Sisters of Misery - Megan Kelley Hall
Perfume - Patrick Süskind
The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly
Wuthering Heights - Emily Brontë
The Castle of Otranto - Horace Walpole
New Moon - Stephenie Meyer
Grotesque - Natsuo Kirino
The Historian - Elizabeth Kostova
The Ladies of Grace Adieu - Susanna Clarke
