R.I.P Challenge, revisited

I have rethought my Reading Challenge, and I revised my book list:

1. The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield
2. Stardust - Neil Gaiman (replacing Coraline)
3. Sabriel - Garth Nix (didn't know it would apply)
4. Archangel - Sharon Shinn (Just because I loved it)
5. Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

Bonus books:
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
Heir to the Shadows by Anne Bishop
The Silver Rose by Susan Carroll
Coraline - Neil Gaiman

Call me lazy or whatever, but the challenge really is to read five books with a dark or atmospheric setting, which is what I did. And, they all come off my to be read pile except Neverwhere, which I bought specifically for the competition. So, that meets my goals.


  1. You're not lazy at all, you're meeting the challenge in its spirit which is the whole point. Its all about having fun anyway, not meeting some ambiguous goal. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on Neverwhere.

  2. You rock! Congrats. I never heard of most of your choices, so I figure I'm that much ahead for next year's challenge!

  3. All of them have been good so far! So, I am sure anything you chose would be a good choice. :)
