R.I.P. V Wrap-up
I'm a few days late with this post, but I've been away visiting my parents and with baby Shane in our lives blogging while on holiday has become a thing of the past.
For the R.I.P. Challenge, I aimed to complete Peril the First, which required 4 scary books, and I succeeded. But only because Carl let me cheat a bit and include a book I read just before the challenge started. Thanks Carl! :-) Here's what I ended up reading (as compared to my plan):
Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris
Dracula by Bram Stoker
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Room by Emma Donaghue
It's not hard to pick a favorite, since I absolutely LOVED Room. But the others were all great too. I'm particularly pleased that I finally read Dracula, as I've been meaning to explore the more classic scary stories. I guess Frankenstein and anything by Edgar Allan Poe will be next!
Thanks Carl for continuing to host this fabulous challenge, it's been great!
