RIP IV Challenge
Once upon a time, when I was a baby blogger, this challenge was going on. (Click on the picture if somehow you've managed never to have heard of it or are getting a late start on it like me!) I think it may be part of what reeled me into the book blogosphere despite my never having taken part in the challenge before this year. It was so exciting to see so many people enthused about this challenge and reading all sorts of deliciously atmospheric books during a season (fall!) that seems to cry out for them. This year, I'm actually joining up.
I'm only planning to do Peril the Third which is the option that demands that only one book be read. I know myself, as many of you know me, to be a pretty slow reader, so I do like to set my goals low so that I can achieve them and perhaps actually surpass them. Carl tells us that we don't have to commit to a list, but suggests that we make a pool of reading options for the challenge.
Here's a few that I'm thinking about especially, though I do have a good few more options if these don't end up suiting me...
