R.I.P IV Challenge 2009

R.I.P. IV Challenge 2009

I am excited to have finished my reading for Stainless Steel Droppings’ R.I.P IV Challenge. I am posting early just because I rarely have time lately to post and with my son’s first Halloween coming up I am busy with Mommy stuff and may not get in anymore spooky reading! I must say I was happy with what I accomplished this last month though reading wise. I really have gotten hooked on Charlaine Harris and her Sookie Stackhouse series and I found a very similar series I like by Molly Harper. The first two books are out now: Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs and Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men. Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever will be released January 2010. Now normally these books would not be “my cup of tea” but the main character is a Children’s Librarian, dedicated Janeite and frankly hilarious! So my final total was 10 although I did not get to every genre. I really wanted to re-read some Poe and The Monk but time ran away! Happy Halloween!!

Mystery: Helter Skelter
Suspense: The Ghost Writer by John Harwood, Grave Surprise by Charlaine Harris
Dark Fantasy: The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan , Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Gothic: Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
: A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris, Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs and Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men by Molly Harper

R.I.P Challenge IV

R.I.P. IV Challenge 2009

I am so excited about Stainless Steel Droppings’ R.I.P IV Challenge! This will be my first year participating in this challenge and I am very excited. “There are two simple goals to the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge: 1. Have fun reading.  2. Share that fun with others.” There are also multiple levels of participation that can adapt to anyone’s schedule. I myself am planning to participate in Peril the 2nd or Peril the 1st. Depending on what my son will allow me to do as far as reading time. I also want to make sure I throw in a good short story as well. Make sure and check out the blog for more information on the challenge. It runs from September 1- October 31st, a great time for some good scary reading! Some of my ideas for the challenge categories and what I might read are:

Mystery: Helter Skelter ( although it is True Crime I think it fits this category in some ways)
Suspense: The Ghost Writer by John Harwood
Thriller: ?
Dark Fantasy: ?
Gothic: The Monk by Matthew Lewis ( I ADORE this book)
Horror: A Poe short story or collection thereof
: a Charlaine Harris title
