RIP II successfully completed, and what a great challenge it was. My goal was to read 4 books and Fragile Things
The beauty of a challenge is sometimes you find a book you weren't planning, and it turns into a great read. And then Carl sprung some mid-challenge challenges in the middle which completely changed what was originally planned. I read 3 of the books I originally listed, and just didn't get to The Historian, but I made up for that by reading Colleen Gleason's vampire books, the Gardella Vampire Chronicles, which was one of Carl's surprise contests.
The books I read during the past two months that fit into this challenge include the following:
Among the Shadows by LM Montgomery
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Seterfield
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason
Never Let Me Go by Kazou Ishiguro
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Everything's Eventual by Stephen King
Rises the Night by Colleen Gleason
and then The Additional Peril: Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman
What a great bunch of books!
Favorite books: Never Let Me Go, Neverwhere, and The Road
Short Story collections: Among the Shadows, Everything's Eventual and Fragile Things
Vampire Series: The Gardella Vampire Chronicles, and looking forward to the third book
So thank you to Carl for hosting, and having my poppet, Christie arrive during the RIP II challenge, it seemed perfect. Can't wait for next year, because I still have some more creepy books to read, and it is fun to get into the Halloween mood.
