So here's the deal:
Readers Imbibing Peril runs from September 1 - October 31 and you basically just pick books that you think fit into the creepy, mysterious, delightfully horrible theme, have some fun reading them and then link your posts to the review site which is put on by Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings.
The good thing is that Carl has given us options. The bad thing is that some of those can overlap so I am partaking in multiple parts of the challenge...and a readalong.
Peril the First means I will be reading four books for the challenge. I have put together the following list to chose from.
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Dark Souls by Paula Morris
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero
I have wanted to read The Haunting of Hill House for a long time and have already started it in anticipation.
Lastly, can we just take a moment and appreciate the beautiful banners created for this challenge. The artist is Abigail Larson and after visiting her shop I want to spend lots of money on things like this and this. Oh hey and this.
Well, I'm already behind on this month so I better get reading.
