R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril…IV!!!

August 26, 2009 RIP 5

I was so excited to see Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings had posted about his famous RIP (R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril) Challenge, September 1-October 31! I’ve wanted to participate for some time, but this is the first I’ve been able to. I always try to read a lot of great horror and thriller during the Halloween season, and this challenge gives me another excuse!

RIP challenges you to pick books from the following categories:


Dark Fantasy.


There are also certain levels (perils) to this challenge. I will be participating in:

Peril the First states that I must read four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories.

Now, since my favorite genre is horror, I have a huge bookshelf that is literally packed (I’m talking at least 200 books) full of horror fiction. So, I have a great pool of books to choose from.

Following is my tentative list. I will be adding to this list, I’m certain, depending on the mood I’m in!

Any suggestions for other books I should add to my pool?

    I'm so excited to Cassandra Clare on your list!! I so LOVED that trilogy. I hope you have all three, I read them straight through without waiting…I couldn't stand the suspence!

    I listened to Storm Front about a month ago, it's pretty good. I hear that series gets better as you go.

    And you know I'm reading, and loving, Her Fearful Symmetry. I can't wait to hear what you think of that one!

    We Have Always Lived in the Castle looks so interesting. I'm going to have to check that one out!

    I absolutely adored the City of Bones, Ashes and Glass series and highly recommend them to adults as well as YA. The Vampire Academy Books by Richelle Mead are also great reads for YA.

    I also recommend the series by Megan McCafferty, The Jessica Darling story. Sloppy Firsts, Second Comings… All the way up to five.
