I love Autumn; it’s my favourite time of year. I love the back to school feel of it, the nip in the air. I’m too pale to be a summer kind of girl. Maybe that’s why the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge over at Stainless Steel Droppings has caught my eye, the notion of welcoming autumn in by reading spooky books certainly appeals to my nature!
Never mind that I haven’t quite finished the 20 Books of Summer Challenge yet, we’ll get to that later in the week!
So, from 1 September through to 31 October, the challenge is to read books from the following genres:
I’m planning to participate in Peril The First, where I read four books of this nature over the next two months. You can join the challenge at differing levels; you can even just watch spooky movies! Head on over and check it out to see if you’d like to join the fun. Or, more appropriately, join the fear!
I had a look through the remaining books from the 746 and have chosen to read these beauties:
1. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
2. Joyland by Stephen King
3. Your House is On Fire, Your Children All Gone by Stefan Kiesbye
4. The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares by Joyce Carol Oates
Not exactly a barrel of laughs, right? But I’m really looking forward to getting the fire lit, curling up under a blanket and scaring myself silly!
Has anybody read any of these? Anybody brave enough to join me?!
