R.I.P. V Reading Challenge 2010

It's time again for the R.I.P. challenge hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings.

It runs September 1 through October 31 but you can start today.

I love the buttons Carl created again. This is a really fun different reading challenge and I am excited to particpate again.

The different categories of books involved in this challenge are:
Dark Fantasy.

There are two simple goals for the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril V Challenge:

1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.

I am signing up for Peril the Third which is to read one book that falls into any of the categories listed above. I am taking suggestions as far as which books to read.

Here are three books I have so far on my list:
- Green Angel by Alice Hoffman

- Cousin Kate by Georgette Heyer

- Thirst by Tracey Bateman (possible Christian vampire novel ?)

I'd recommend Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, if you haven't read it. I also understand her book, My Cousin Rachel, is also quite good. And quite a bit shorter, I believe (don't quote me on that). I don't read a lot of vampire books (I'm a Dracula snob), but I did read, The Strain, last year and found it to be a real page-turner. Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie is a real fun mystery story.

Thanks for joining in! :)

I've never heard of the three books on your list!

Carl - I don't think My Cousin Rachel is shorter, from looking at my copy. But I haven't looked inside. Maybe it's larger print or something?

I am not familiar with your book choices but I love Georgette Heyer and I have been meaning to read Alice Hoffman.

Oooh, Green Angel is such a wonderful little book! And it's a really quick read, too, which sometimes can be a nice thing. Hope you enjoy whatever books you end up choosing!

Have fun reading those!

Please do check out the books I already read for RIP V.

I've never read any Georgette Heyer but as a fellow Kate I may have to look into this book. Thanks for the idea! Happy reading!
