Well, it's the end of another fantastic autumn R.I.P. challenge reading season. I love that spine-tingling feeling I get reading otherworldly creepy or ghostly things as the leaves change color and the temperature turns chilly. I also love the feeling of community I get, knowing that all over the world, readers who share my love of the darker side of literature are also getting that same, delicious spine-tingling sensation. I love reading everyone else's reviews, and I already have a ton of books that I learned about from other readers that I'll be saving up - if I can wait that long - for next autumn. I have read R.I.P. books for myself, and books to my children, too, and we've all had a wonderful time.
This R.I.P. season, I read the following books. Some have yet to be reviewed, but I hope to get to them soon.
- The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
- Tamsin by Peter S. Beagle
- Shadowland by Meg Cabot
- The Haunted House by Charles Dickens
- The Sandman: Fables & Reflections by Neil Gaiman
- The Crossroads by Chris Grabenstien
- Bite by Laurell K. Hamilton (anthology)
- Bullet by Laurell K. Hamilton
- Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris
- Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
- Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti
- The Twisted Room by Janet Patton Smith
- The House on Tradd Street by Karen White
- The Mystery of the Crimson Ghost by Phyllis A. Whitney
