R.I.P III Reading Challenge

After much thought, I've decided to join in the fun. Carl V at Stainless Steel Droppings is holding the R.I.P III reading challenge which runs from 1 September until 31 October 2007. The challenge is simple i.e. read between 1 and 4 books by choosing the three available perils (or level). The chosen books can range from the the following subgenres:

  • Mystery
  • Suspense
  • Thriller
  • Dark Fantasy
  • Gothic
  • Horror
  • Supernatural
I chose "Peril the First" "Read four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose" - More details of the challenge can be found here.

I have selected the following titles and depending on my mood, I may change the list, but for now these are what I've chosen:

  1. The Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley (Mystery/Supernatural)
  2. UNFINISHED: A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore (Dark Fantasy)
  3. The Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko (Supernatural)
  4. The Host by Stephenie Meyer (Thriller)
  5. Monster by Frank Peretti (Thriller/Suspense)
