From ghoulies and ghosties,
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us. – Anonymous
On to Carl’s RIP II challenge: This is the comment I left upon hearing of the Challenge:
I’m totally in! I’ll be reading The Other by Thomas Tryon, I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, Four and Twenty Blackbirds by Cherie Priest and Strangers by Taichi Yamada for starters. This year, I’m back to my reading self! I even have a book from my childhood that I’ll be rereading…can’t wait! I’ll be posting a picture of the books as soon as I get in…in a nice stack!
Well, I did it! Although I didn’t read all the books I said I would…I ended up making some substitutions. Out of the original list, I read Strangers by Taichi Yamada, which I really enjoyed; to that I added The Twilight Series (3 big books) by Stephanie Meyer, and in doing so, found a new author to adore! I also read Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause and 2 short stories: “Sredni Vashtar”, from the book, “More Tales to Tremble By” and “Bored Tom”, from – Strange Happenings: Five Tales of Transformation by Avi.
Peril the 1st completed! Thanks, Carl, for this challenge. It was fun, and allowed me to meet interesting some folks!
