Something Wicked(ly Fun) That Way Goes


Phew! I finished the R.I.P. II Challenge. I saved the longest books on my list for last, which wasn't a very smart idea, so I ended up having to sprint to the finish line. My eyes are bleary and red from my frenzied final stretch!

I really enjoyed this challenge, although I found myself steering away from the horror genre and focusing more on magical stories. My least favorite pick was Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill (my review), and I really can't pick my most favorite. It's a toss-up between Lord of the Rings, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Stardust and A Series of Unfortunate Events. Really, the only book I read for this challenge that I didn't care much for was Heart-Shaped Box. Well, there was also Glass Books of the Dream-Eaters, which was just too erotic for me (I read Lord of the Rings in its place).

Thanks so much, Carl, for hosting this one. It was a lot of fun!

  1. You had some long and challenging books on your list, no wonder you had to sprint to the end. Well done on finishing!

  2. I wasn't overly nuts about Heart-Shaped Box either, but I thought it was OK. You read some great books for this challenge though! Some of my favorites. I love Stardust, Jonathan Strange, and I'm a huge Tolkien fan :) AND I've got some good news for you over on my blog ;)

  3. Chris - I'm now going to go buy a lottery ticket! I have been so lucky in the past few weeks - I know you don't believe this, but I really never win anything. Thanks for the book. I'm so excited to read it. I'll send you an email in a sec.

  4. For all of you LDS readers out there - I was joking about the lottery ticket :)

Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
