R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril…IV

I'm a tad late signing up for Carl's R.I.P. IV challenge, but who cares, right?

The challenge is to read from the following genres until 31 October, scary Halloween...

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.

So getting into the mood of the season, here are my possibilities... I'm aiming for Peril the First or Second, depends how many books I can realistically get through while reading for other challenges too!

Check out Carl's original post for more details and visit the review site to see what everyone else is reading.

Just the tiniest tad, there is still a lot of challenge reading time to go! I'm glad you joined in and think you have a thrilling list of potential reads there. I will be reading The Historian sometime in Oct. as well for the challenge.

Thanks for coming along for the fun!

Yay, you joined! Hope you enjoy your books. I've only read Name of the Rose from your list and that's a wonderful book.

Fingersmith is excellent for this challenge, and the Barclay will be very suspenseful. Have a great time!

Nymeth - I knew you'd say that. :-)

Carl - I've been meaning to read it for ages and when I saw it on your list I had to add it to mine. Credit's all yours. :-)

Iliana - it intimidates me!!

raidergirl - yes, it was you who reminded me of the Barclay, I'm sure it'll be good.

Dear participant of the genre challenge,

I am happy to announce that the genre challenge blog is finally up and running! Due to some real life problems, this has taken longer than planned, but now that it’s finished, I invite you over to post your reviews there. It’s at http://genrechallenge.blogspot.com/

The process is really simple, just post the link to your review in the comments of the appropriate post. An example: if you reviewed a fantasy book for the genre challenge, post the review in the comments of the Fantasy Fiction Reviews 2008-2009 post.

Because of the transfer from my general book blog to the genre challenge blog, some review links might have become lost, so please check to see if all of your reviews have been linked. If not, please repost the links I missed. According to my information, you haven’t posted any links yet. Just to remind you, to be eligible for the prize drawing, all of your reviews must be posted before 1 November 2009.

Thanks for joining this challenge!

Happy reading,

Samantha
