R.I.P. Challenge V


I guess I should officially sign-up for this challenge! It is just a given that I am going to join in, but this is the first chance I have had to think about things. I find it hard to believe that this is the fifth year for the challenge! I can't believe I have been blogging that long... This year I am doing Peril the First. This means reading four books that fit into any of these categories:

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.


I tend to read this way at this time of the year regardless of the challenge, so I will likely read more than four.

Books Completed:
1. Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong
2. Tales of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong
3. Skulduggery Pleasant: Dark Days by Derek Landy
4. Room by Emma Donoghue
9. Dracula in Love by Karen Essex

  1. Yeah I'm making mine a 4+ challenge rather than just 4, because I know I'll read more.

  3. 3 books read already?! I love this challenge. Unfortunately it's too sunny for me to think about scary stories though I did check out a few books for this challenge. Happy reading!

  4. I've been looking for you on the list, hoping that you were going to join in again this year. It really is hard to believe that it has been 5 years, isn't it? I started blogging in January of '05. Doesn't seem possible that so much time has passed by so very quickly. Love that you are a part of this again, it makes me smile.

  9. sometimes I forget that you read so much so fast! you are right in that the Skulduggery series is enjoyable. I only read the first one so far but did enjoy it! Glad you made it official to join, I couldn't imagine this without you!

  10. Amanda: But at least if I only read 4 I will still have accomplished something. :)

    Debi: It is that time of the year for me... The leaves start changing and I start digging around for some atmospheric reads.

    Vasilly: I am reading my own books at the moment, but might do a bit of library browsing for a bit more...

    Carl: I know, I was slow! Normally I am one of the first people to sign-up. Then, I forgot that I hadn't until I posted a review. :)

    Cath: I love Kelley Armstrong. There is only one book in the whole series I didn't like and that was just because I didn't like the main character...

    gautami: Happy reading!

    Memory: I anticipate this time of the year all year. :)

    Alice: It should be fun!

    Pat: I haven't been reading so fast this year, but if I put my mind to I can! I couldn't imagine this without you, either!

  14. I haven't tried skulduggery yet - but I do have it on my wish list - so that is a step in the right direction :)

  15. Rhinoa: Yes, you MUST catch up on Armstrong. Such a great series!

    Chris: lol I like this time of the year, so reading books that fit is a given!

    Shellie: Thanks! One year I did read about 20 books, I think, but hard to say what will happen this year. It depends on my mood. :)

    Sally: Skulduggery is a fun series, so I hope you enjoy it!

  16. Three books already, LOL. Some of us have only just started! I've only read Skulduggery Pleasant, I hadn't realised there were so many more now - that's great! Happy reading for the rest of the challenge.

    The word verification today is "ratinit" - seems very appropriate!

  17. Geranium Cat: I may be wrong, but I think there are going to be 10 or 11 Skulduggery books. Someone told me at some point but I can't remember!

  23. I made a list, but I'm already straying from it. LOL Good luck with the challenge, Kelly!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Literary Feline: I ALWAYS stray, so there is no point in making a list... lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. Already so much read! I do love this challenge, and you always have good suggestions to inspire a list!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Looks like you've almost completed this challenge already! I haven't read any of the books on your list but I have read Bitten and Stolen by Kelley Armstrong. For some reason, I had trouble with Dime Store Magic. It seemed too predictable and a little irritating. Did you read it?

    Have fun with the challenge!
