RIP is a reading challenge hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings celebrating all those spooky, fall-like stories -- mystery, suspense, thrillers, dark fantasy, gothic, horror, supernatural, and anything else that evokes those spooky feelings.
I am going to participate in Peril the First, which is reading four books that fit the above categories. I have no idea how much time I am going to have to read because I am going back to work full time tomorrow (eek) but here are some of my ideas:
* Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield
* The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (reread)
* Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen (also my classics spin read)
* Hamlet by William Shakespeare
* The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
* The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
* The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
There are always so many that I want to read each year. Any spooky book suggestions?
