Another year of the RIP is over. This year we only had to commit to 4 books but I managed to double that and read 8 appropriate books. This is the challenge I, and I think everybody elese, looks forward to all year long. Hosted by Carl, it's always a great 2 months of scary, creepy reads. Here's what I managed to read this year.
RIP IV Challenge (Sept 1 - Oct. 31, 2009) (4 books)
1. Wisconsin Death Trip by Michael Lesy
2. Haunted by Barbara Haworth-Attard
3. Fear the Worst by Linwood Barclay
4. The Hanging Hill by Chris Grabenstein
5. My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
6. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
7. The Child Thief by Brom
8. The Bag of Bones by Vivian French
I'm pleased with every single book I read this year!
A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read.
I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to mystery thrillers, Catholic theology, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction & Victorian fiction, and nonfiction; but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that. I have a teensy fascination with macabre non-fiction books about death and anything about insane asylums.
I also tend to post a lot of reviews of juvenile/teen books, with a nod towards what parents can expect to find that might or might not be objectionable.
I also blog about graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.
