R.I.P. II Reading Challenge
Woo-hoo! A challenge tailor-made for the half of my TBR bookpile otherwise known as my boyfriend's book collection.
I may come to regret this, but I've decided to do Peril the Third. My books are:
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke
Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen (This is actually from my collection, and is technically a reread, but I first read it 15 years ago, and I think it will be fun to read it again in the spirit of this challenge.)
The Gormenghast Novels - Mervyn Peake My boyfriend owns these as an omnibus, which definitely pushes them into tome status. I'm only going to promise to read the first two, Titus Groan and Gormenghast, as I've been warned that the third is definitely not as good.
