This was my first time participating in the R.I.P. challenge and I loved it. I participated in Peril the First: Read four books, any length, that you feel fits my very broad definition of scary. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming or Edgar Allan Poe…or anyone in between. I read five, because I especially love scary books this time of the year:
Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson
The Secret of Lost Things - Sheridan Hay
Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers - Mary Roach
The Turn of the Screw - Henry James
The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly
My very favorite of the five was Stiff, followed closely by The Turn of the Screw and The Book of Lost Things.
