R.I.P. Reading Challenge!

Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting a scary reading challenge. I like a good scary book as the next person and with Fall upon us and Halloween I thought I would join in! Here are your genre choices:

Dark Fantasy.

There are two simple rules:

1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.

I've been wanting to read my large collection of short-story horror fiction! So this is the perfect excuse!


  1. I love Halloween reads and a good ghost story! I read some Sherlock Holmes last year and this year I'm reading Frankenstein. My all time fav gothic mystery is Collins - The Woman in White. Superb and the best villian ever.
    Sounds like a fun challenge.

  2. Great to have you on board! Thanks so much for joining. This time of year is such a great one for scary short fiction. I read a bunch this past weekend and have piles of anthologies I hope to dip into over the next couple of months.

  3. Lula, The Woman in White sounds intriguing! I'll have to add it.

  4. Ooooo I love paranormal/supernatural...sadly I have NO time for another challenge :-( Have fun with this!!!!

    I have ANOTHER award for you

  5. This sounds like a fun challenge! Hope you enjoy!

  6. Yay! So glad you are joining in! I haven't decided on which books to read yet...I think I'm going to go to Barnes and Noble after work though and take a look-see :)

  7. I need to wrest Dracula away from my son so that I can finish it for this challenge--I read it a few years ago, and then started rereading it when I was in Whitby this June, and then the kids got ahold of it...

    BTW, I have nominated your lovely site for the Zombie Chicken Award--congrats and kudos on a wonderful blog! Visit my site for details.

  8. I'm dying to do this challenge but so swamped I just don't have time! But every time I see someone else's RIP post I start to waffle...

    By the way, my company just published a book that would be perfect for this challenge. It's not scary, but it's definitely a thriller with a very twisted sense of humor. You can check it out at

    If you're interested, I can send you a review copy! Email me at niclovesbooks[at]gmail[dot]com.

    Happy scary reading!

  9. look forward to your creepy, scary and spooky posts.

  10. Can't wait to read everyone else's creepy posts as well!


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
