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, Catholic, with Asperger's, who reads as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read or read aloud to my energetic Autistic 12yo.
I love reading almost any book from classics to mysteries to fantasy to manga. I read everything from Christian fiction/non-fiction to dark, paranormal horror novels, go figure. So I'm liable to offend just about everyone with my book choices LOL :-)
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 non-fiction, but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that, both fiction and non-fiction. 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, books I read aloud to my son and books he reads aloud to me but I still do a lot of adult reviews as well. I am so addicted to graphic novels and manga that I have a separate BLOG just for those reviews. I read well over 200 books a year, and for the first time ever made it to over 300 last year (2012)! Come join me you never know what new treasure you'll find to read here!
