A lot of bloggers posted about the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI challenge hosted by Carl this week, and I didn't even know what it was. (I'm always so behind on these blogging events) After a little investigating, I've decided to, excuse the cliche, jump on the bandwagon.
There are so many Perils to choose from, and I chose Peril the First. I get to read four books that fall under the following genres: mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, Gothic, horror, and supernatural. Here are the books I've chosen:
- The Monk by Matthew Lewis - I started reading this last night, before I even found out about the challenge. Something tells me R.I.P. VI, and I are meant to be.
- The Turn of the Screw by Henry James - I never knew Henry James wrote horror, and I've never ready anything by him. The Turn of the Screw sounds like a good place to start.
- The Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson - I started reading this when I was twelve, but I soon gave up on it, thinking it was beyond boring. Me thinks it's time to give it another chance.
- Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier - We meet again, DuMaurier. A friend of mine swears by this book. I, on the other hand, fell asleep while reading the first chapter. I'm not kidding. However, I'm not one to judge a book by its first chapter, so I decided to give Rebecca another chance.
What about you? Are you joining R.I.P. VI? If you are, what are you reading. :)
