Against My Better Judgment...

I've already got 2 reading challenges going on, so I've been debating whether or not to do this one. Unfortunately, it's just too alluring...scary reads, giveaways, an engaging host...what's not to love? Since it's still hitting 110 degrees here, I'm hoping this will get me into the Fall/Halloween spirit. If you want to join in, check out Carl's site for all the details.

My list is below:


Peril the First (read 4 books of any length from any subgenre of scary stories you choose):


1. Mistress of the Art of Death - Ariana Franklin (also reading for the Unread Authors Challenge hosted by Sycorax Pine)

2. The Heart-Shaped Box - Joe Hill (also reading for Cardathon Challenge, hosted by Becky)

3. A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning, Or Orphans - Lemony Snickett (also reading for Unread Authors Challenge)

4. Stardust - Neil Gaiman


Peril the Second (Read 2 long books with 1 average-sized volume sandwiched between)
1. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke
2. Strange Happenings - Avi
3. Glass Books of the Dream Eaters - Gordon Dahlquist
Alternates
1. Rosemary's Baby - Ira Levin
2. In Cold Blood - Truman Capote
3. Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers - Mary Roach
