R.I.P. V Challenge

If you even knew how excited I was to hear that sign-ups had gone up for the R.I.P. V Challenge...well, maybe I shouldn't go there. Just know that I have been waiting quite impatiently for this challenge for months and have been in the mood for dark, deliciously creepy novels for awhile now. I'm SO excited that the wait is finally over!!!!! I have every intention of spending the next two months reading books for this challenge. Books that fit into the genres of

Dark Fantasy.

I've been perusing everyone's pools of books for this challenge and adding to my TBR list like crazy. I'm planning another RIP library loot post like last year. I'm also hoping to read, read, read and maybe creep myself out. Just a little bit :) So of course I'm signing up for Peril the First which only requires me to read 4 books. I'm hoping to read even more than that though and maybe even watch a scary movie. I say maybe because even though I like reading creepy books...well...I'm a wimp when it comes to movies. Especially movies that are older and scary (like Amityville Horror). Can I say nightmares?? For now let me share some of the many, many possibilities of books that I might read for this challenge (and let me assure you that I have many more written down :P).

And yes folks, I have many, many more that I want to read but Blogger is being a pain with sharing the covers so we'll leave it at this for now. I'm looking forward to reading all of your reviews and adding even more to my TBR list. Thanks once again to Carl for hosting this wonderful challenge! Happy reading!!!!

  6. I want to read at least 5 of your book pool. So excited about the challenge again this year :)

  7. Loved Fingersmith and The Gargoyle. Have a great time! There are my favorite type of books.

  8. One of many good things about the RIP Challenge is how many people it gets to read Sarah Waters, one of my favorite authors. I hope you love Fingersmith!!

  9. The Gargoyle and Fingersmith were both really good. I hope you enjoy them!

  10. Ohh... I've been wanting to read The Gargoyle. I didn't even think of that one for this challenge. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it. And I am the same with movies - I can handle creepy books, but movies-- oh, heck no! I've tried numerous times to watch The Shining, and just can't do it, LOL! Happy Spooky Reading/Watching!

  11. Cat- I've been meaning to read both of these authors for a couple years now. This better be the year :)

    Rhinoa- I'm super excited myself!! Can't wait to hear what you read for fact I'm planning on reading White Crow because of your review :)

    Raidergirl- These are some of my favorite books to read as well.

    Jenny- I hope I love it too! I've heard nothing but good things about this author.

    Overflowing Bookshelf- Glad I'm not the only one who can't watch scary movies :P
