Of the various Perils, I've chosen Peril the First! I'll be attempting four books from any of the following genres: mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, Gothic, horror, supernatural.
I may also find myself dabbling in Peril of the Short Story, and I'm definitely interested in taking part in this year's Peril of the Group Read. One of the selections is the much-blogged-about, The Lantern, by Deborah Lawrenson.
I've found it's pretty productive for me to limit my reading choices so as not to become overwhelmed; I'll be working from a small collection of printed books and the e-books on my Nook. Some of the reading I have in mind:
- Affinity by Sarah Waters (STILL need to finish it)
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- The Good Doctor Guillotin by Marc Estrin
- Captivity by Deborah Noyes
Autumn is my favorite part of the year for the weather, the atmosphere, the damn fine reading, and the wonderful sense of community that swirls around the RIP Challenge! Thanks to Carl for fearlessly hosting us once again!
