So ever since Carl announced RIP III I’ve been wandering around the house looking for suitable books to use as my pool for the challenge.

And even though there are more I could add, I think I’m going to plump for the following list from which to complete Peril the First, where I have to read four books of any length from any subgenre of scary stories I choose:

  • The Terror by Dan Simmons [6 September]
  • Duma Key by Stephen King
  • Come Closer by Sara Gran
  • Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist [25 September]
  • Uncle Montague’s Tales of Terror by Chris Priestley [3 October]
  • Midwinter of the Spirit by Phil Rickman
  • Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill [14 September]
  • Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

I would love to have included The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman but it doesn’t come out in the UK until the end of October as far as I can tell.

I also intend to round off the challenge with my annual viewing of The Nightmare Before Christmas, which seems fitting given Carl’s fabulous challenge button!

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
