R.I.P. III is here!

It's that time again. Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings has issued his fall Challenge and I again am taking him up on his offer. I just love to torure myself. It's not the scarey stories, which I like to read in the fall, its writing the reviews. But, to grow we must be challenged, so write them I will.
I'm going with:

Which is: Read Four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose.

The Gothic/Horror/Suspense genre isn't something I normally read, although I do like the ghosty fansty/sci-fi. So I've been looking at the other blogger's lists and I've come up with a list of my own. The first two Carl pointed out and they intrigued me. I love the title of the 2nd one.

  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  • The Ghost In Love by Jonathan Carroll
  • Underground by Kat Richardson
  • The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson-- not sure if this one fits in the genre, but it looks good
  • Touch the Dark by Karen Chance
  • Glass Houses - Rachel Caine

And what ever else I find. One of the best things about the challenge is all the new books the other blogger's bring to my attention.

So glad you've picked up the gauntlet I threw down! ;)

Seriously, yay! So glad you're in again. Love the book pool. I still need to read Poltergeist before picking up Underground!

You should check out sites like, say, Andi's (here is her latest post which has book reviews at the end):

Just answering questions that way may make it more enjoyable for you to write reviews.

Or just go with those quick, one sentence summaries! :)

Hi Carrie! Hope you've been well. It seems like forever since I stopped by here.

Great list! Look forward to your challenge posts!
