Last week I posted about loving seasonal reading pretty much from September through December (though the types of books change obviously from kill me with fear! to kill me with sentimentality!) and this is a challenge I am looking forward to joining as it relatively simple and loads of fun and already fitting in with everything I want to read anyway should I actually have any reading time.
But please do yourself a favor and go read the introduction post from Carl who is a superb writer and will get you all in the mood for the challenge and gaze upon the images for this challenge that I happen to think are absolutely magnificent!
Okay, now that you're back here are some of the books I'm considering:
The Ghost Writer by John Harwood (I neglected to mention that I bought this immediately after reading Melody's review.)
Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist
The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith (crosses with my challenge!)
Heartsick by Chelsea Cain (been sitting on the shelf for like two years!)
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova (bought after seeing prominently displayed in an episode of Supernatural)
Ancestral Shadows: An Anthology of Ghostly Tales by Russell Kirk
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe (which I just sort of hope fits into this)
Half-Minute Horrors (A collection of instant frights from the world's most astonishing authors and artists--just showed up on my doorstep today!)
Afraid by Jack Kilborn
Goth by Otsuichi
And I'll probably think of many more! Now I'm going to take on Peril the First and hope for the best. Also, could someone please order some cooler weather for us here in Southern California. I'm still a midwestern girl at heart and prefer my literary chills with...well, real chills. :)
Happy scary reading everyone!
