As usual I decided to do:
Which was to:
Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (the very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. It could be King or Conan Doyle, Penny or Poe, Chandler or Collins, Lovecraft or Leroux…or anyone in between.
I managed to read seven books in all and these are they:
1. Hag's Nook by John Dickson Carr
2. Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs
3. The Twenty-third Man by Gladys Mitchell
4. A Coven of Vampires by Brian Lumley
5. Night of the Living Deed by E.J. Copperman
6. The Unburied by Charles Palliser
7. The Sittaford Mystery by Agatha Christie (to be reviewed)
I enjoyed all of the books very much indeed. I seem to have quite successfully combined my current crime book addiction with this RIP challenge by choosing crime books that all had a supernatural element of some sort in the plot. Sometimes it was more to the fore than others, but all had something spooky about them.
Hard to pick a favourite but if I had to I think it would be a draw between The Unburied by Charles Palliser and Agatha Christie's The Sittaford Mystery. Both were cracking reads.
So that's R.I.P. over for another year. Huge fun and thanks to Carl for hosting once again.
