Readers Imbibing Peril VI 2011
This challenge is open to anyone interested in getting their literary fright fix.
Here are some of the books I've been waiting all year to read. I'm not sure how many I'll actually get through before the end of October, but it's a start.
The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells
Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier (not sure if this classifies as 'creepy' but I loved Rebecca, so . . . )
The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole
The Turn of The Screw by Henry James
Asylum by Patrick McGrath
The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl
The Shadow of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allen Poe (been dipping into this one all year; it's fantastic)
