R.I.P IV Reading Challenge 9/1/09 - 10/31/09

I know time is flying when it's already time to start the R.I.P. IV Reading Challenge.

This year, I'll be doing Peril the 1st, which is to read at least four books in the mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic, horror, or supernatural categories.

So far, I've got the following queued up or in my TBR pile, but we'll see where I actually go with this.

Blood Pact - Tanya Huff
Tamsin - Peter Beagle
Something Rich and Strange - Patricia A. McKillip
The Bloody Chamber - Angela Carter
The Secret History of Moscow - Ekaterina Sedia
Fevre Dream - George RR Martin

I have got to get myself a copy of that Patricia A. McKillip book. She is one of my favorites and I feel like I'm betraying her by not owning a copy of it! :)

I definitely will be rereading at least some stories from The Bloody Chamber this year. Read it for the first time last year and loved it.

I'll be interested in your thoughts on Secret History of Moscow. I just recently read and reviewed her newer book, The Alchemy of Stone, and found it a very rewarding experience.

I'm so glad its this time of year again and that you are joining in with us again!

I picked that McKillip book up used with three others I hadn't read yet. It was a very good used book store trip ;)

I've been told Tamsin is very good. A friend recommended it to me recently.
