So, you would think that given I have just completed a three month, 20 book challenge, that a new challenge would be the last thing I would want to dive into.
I have a very soft spot for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril which is now in its fourteenth year. It’s a challenge I have done once or twice before and one that gets me firmly in an autumnal frame of mind.
I wasn’t going to participate this year, but I have seen a lot of your lovely (or should that be creepy?) posts detailing your plans and just couldn’t resist.
I’m going to go for Peril the First and read 4 books between now and 30 October that fall into one of these categories:
- Dark Fantasy
I’ve had a look through the old TBR and NetGalley backlog and am going to read at least four of the following (click on the links for Goodreads descriptions):
The Exorcist by William Blatty
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Ratman’s Notebooks by Stephen Gilbert
The October Country by Ray Bradbury
Hell House by Richard Matheson
You Should Have Left. by Daniel Kehlmann
Gnomon by Nick Harkaway
Now You’re One Of Us by Asa Nonami, translated by Michael Voleck & Mitsuko Volek
I’ll try and read four from the 746 first – either Hell House, The Exorcist, Now You’re One of Us, The October Country or Ratman’s Notebooks – and leave the others as back-up but I’m looking forward to some dark evenings in front of a warm fire, cuddled in a blanket with these scary pals for company.
Do any of these take your fancy or are there any you would recommend? Is anyone else taking part in R.I.P XIII?
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
