Wewt! So this year will be my first year participating in the RIP challenge:
Here is my speculative list of books to read for the challenge. Suggestions would be most certainly appreciated!
My "Speculative" List for the Challenge:
The Phantom of the Opera by: Gaston Leroux
The Thirteenth Tale by: Dianne Setterfield
The Meaning of Night: A Confession by: Michael Cox
Silent in the Grave by: Deanna Raybourn
The first two I already own. The Thirteenth Tale will be a re-read for me. But it's creepy and just perfect for this challenge. I was originally going to read the Necronomicon as one of my books but changed my mind. I tried to read the Necronomicon once before, Tim and I having picked it up in the bookstore on a whim... but let's face it.. anyone who knows me knows how I am about horror. (i.e.- a big fat whimp) I quit reading it after the first two chapters. I decided I didn't really want to read it for RIP either because it's a bit more "gross" than "horror." Instead, I've picked Phantom of the Opera to replace it. I would classify Phantom as a "gothic romance/thriller." The last two I will have to purchase from Amazon or get from the library. So I will need to do that ASAP because the challenge ends on October 31st!
Hope some of you will join in RIP! It's a lot of spooky autumn fun!
