The RIP II Challenge, hosted by Carl, was one that I’d had to pass up last year and had been looking forward to for months. I’d been marking books as possibilities for this one all year.
Carl made this challenge quite flexible with several options for participants. I’m opted to take on “Peril the First” which was to read four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose.
I chose 4 books for this challenge:
- Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
- Five Mile House by Karen Novak
- The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
- The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
The best book: The Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. I’m not sure why I’ve never read this one, but I’m really glad I finally did.
What book could I have done without? Five Mile House was just OK – not bad, but the weakest of the four I read for the challenge
Any new authors? All were new authors for me.
Books I did not finish: I finished read all that I planned
What did I learn? I loved reading other participants reviews and have several books already listed as possibilities for next years RIP challenge
Thanks Carl! This was fun and I’m looking forward to next year.
