It is time to celebrate things that go bump in the night; that favorite detective that always gets his man, or woman, in the end; that delicious chill of a creak on the stairs, of the rogue waiting in the dark, of the full moon and the flit of bats wings.
Some categories of books that can be read for this challenge:
I'm going to try for:
Read four books, any length, that you feel fits my very broad definition of scary. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming or Edgar Allan Poe…or anyone in between.
I haven't been reading as much as usual over the summer but I've picked up a bit now so am hoping that four books is attainable. I think so.
I've picked a pool of books to read from, though that doesn't necessarily mean I'll stick to it. *g*
Carpe Jugulum - Terry Pratchett
The Picture of Dorian Grey - Oscar Wilde
The Evil Seed - Joanne Harris
The Five Jars - M.R. James
Haggopian and other stories - Brian Lumley
Paragon Walk - Anne Perry
These are a mix of suspense, mystery, classic horror, modern horror, short stories and humour so they ought to keep my interest. A couple are cross-overs with two other challenges I have on the go... the Pratchett and the Oscar Wilde. As always with me, I would love to read all of them but doubt that will happen. Whatever, I plan to have a good time trying. Thanks to Carl for once again hosting this challenge.
