R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI

There's something about the fall that just calls out for a cup of cocoa, a guttering candle, and a wicked spooky  paperback (e-books just don't do it for me in this atmosphere I suppose?). In response to that 'call of the creepy' comes the annual R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (RIP) challenge hosted by Carl over at Stainless Steel Droppings. The challenge asks readers to pick up new reads that could be classified as mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic, horror, or supernatural and to report back about their experiences. I've decided to go for the Peril the First category (4 reviewed books) because I have quite the horror TBR pile going on and I need the incentive to make inroads.  

My projected reading list (subject to change of course!) is as follows:

1. The Stand by Stephen King
2. The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson
3. Song of Kali by Dan Simmons
4. Koko by Peter Straub
5. American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

I've heard great stuff about all of these and I'm excited to start digging in to them! 

What's your favorite fall/Halloween read (or movie!? I'm always game for a good scream-at-the-tv marathon)


  1. I am really looking forward to The Lantern, too. Enjoy your books!

  2. I'm reading my 1st Stephen King IT. Enjoy RIP here is my possible list.

    Still Alice is an ultimate favorite, see it on your shelfari

  3. I'm glad you want to read The House of the Seven Gables with us!

  4. American Psycho is one of my favorite books! Enjoy RIP.
