R.I.P. VIII Challenge (It's Here!!!)
It is officially the best beginning to a week ever because Carl's R.I.P. VIII Challenge is here!! I am SO, SO excited and feel like I have been planning for this for weeks. Maybe because I have. I've been adding potentials reads for this challenge to my TBR list on Goodreads for weeks now. I have big plans for lots of scary reading in the next couple of months. And I see a few library visits in my very near future! Of course I will be culling some books off of my own shelves that will fit in with this challenge as well. This is always my favorite time of the year when the weather begins to change and the urge to read those creepier books sets in. I plan to embrace this and read to my heart's content all of the thrillers, mysteries, and horror reads that I can find!
I'm signing up for Peril the First which only requires you to read four books. I'm hoping to read many, many more than that but it is a good start! I've already signed up for the group read of The Historian (which I just need to dig off of my shelves) and I would love to get back to It by Stephen King which I started last year but didn't finish. What other books am I considering you might ask?? Only all of these...
Because I'm sure these two will have a high creepy factor to them.
Two books from previous R.I.P. lists that STILL haven't been read (but that will change this year).
Thrillers from authors that I've loved previously.
Gothic mysteries? Ummm...YES!!
More creepy possibilities...
Books that I plan on grabbing from the library...
And finally a few from my own shelves :)
I could obviously keep going but I'm going to show a little bit of restraint and stop here. Don't worry because I also plan on sharing a library loot post with all R.I.P. inspired reads AND a wishlist/radar post with creepy reads! I've got plans I tell you....creepy reading plans that is. By the way, I'm starting early on this challenge because I can't wait any longer. So....what creepy reads are you planning on reading? C'mon you know you want to share (and add to my never-ending TBR list)!
