R.I.P. II Autumn Reads Challenge


Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year, so this challenge just completely drew me in. After reading through the different perils, I think I'm going to have to be conservative this year and do Peril the Fourth, in which I am only required to read one book. With such a short timespan and so many other books going at the same time, I'm not sure I can get in more than one, and certainly not 4. I am also going to add on the Short Story Sunday Peril, as I would love to read more spoooky short stories!

My book for the challenge will be House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. For the short stories, we have a Poe anthology around her somewhere, and my husband has a Stephen King collection. I may also pick up something more diverse from the library.

Oh, you've just reminded me - I really want to read House of Leaves! That's going straight on my next Amazon order.

Nice to see another taker for the Short Story Sunday Peril!

I keep thinking of more I want to read, but really have to limit myself! I've been wanting to read House of Leaves for a long time, so this is perfect timing.

I started House of Leaves years ago and never finished it...I don't know what happened! It wasn't that I didn't like it, it was just one of those things. I'm going to have to dig that one up. Thanks for reminding me of it ;) Hope you enjoy it!

I have many books by P. Gregory on my wish list. I have The Other Boleyn Girl on my TBR pile but haven't picked it up yet. I hope you enjoy!
