R.I.P. Challenge

So, as previous mentioned, Carl is doing his annual R.I.P. Challenge again and I am determined to complete this one. I've always started them, but halfway through I switch my reading "schedule" and don't finish it "in time." This year, that will not happen.

I'm going to do Peril the First:

Read Four books of any length, from any sub-genre (mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic, horror, supernatural) of scary stories that you choose.

First up: Dead Until Dark (of which the review was just posted) by Charlaine Harris, followed by Coraline by Neil Gaiman (just posted the review), The Laughter of Dead Kings by Elizabeth Peters Faefever by Karen Marie Moning (just posted the review), a collection of short stories by Shirley Jackson and I think I might reread Macbeth this year. I know that's five titles, but it never hurts to have options, right?

Of course, I'm completely open to suggestions...

I am absolutely loving The Woman in White, which is completely surprising me because I rather disliked the Moonstone.

You've picked some great books to read, I really look forward to your reviews. I am so excited about the upcoming Coraline movie. Wish it was out now though instead of coming out in February. This is the time of year it should be hitting theatres.

Sassymonkey, I've heard fantastic things about The Woman in White, but I've never picked it up. I think I have a copy here, somewhere. Maybe I'll add it in.

Carl, thanks. I'm also looking forward to the movie version; I've heard great things about it so far.
