Inspired by Audra and her inability to resist a reading challenge, I’m going to give it a go and attempt the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI challenge.
Seasons have a mood, and Fall is a time to transition to the darker themed books on my to-read list. It’s a perfect time for a reading challenge on gothic/mystery/suspense/supernatural reads. I’m going to try Peril the Second (read two books) and hopefully Peril on the Screen (watching films or television shows that fit with the theme). Of course, my last reading challenge (The Heroine’s Bookshelf) has not worked out so well–I haven’t made any progress and actually forgot about it until today. Whoops.
Instruments of Darkness by Imogen Robertson—has been on my to-read list since I saw it on the Indie Reads Next List
Now You See Me by S.J. Bolton—my mother just finished it, and while she said “I can’t warn you enough about the violence,” she also surprisingly liked the book. She won’t read my beloved Kate Daniels books because she doesn’t like the violence.
The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson—I think it may count as gothic and has been on my to-read list since spotted in Bookmarks and reviewed by Audra
Tinker, Tailor, Solider Spy by John le Carré—prep for the upcoming film. Also I’ve never read a le Carré.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare—added to the to-read list when I was looking for potential steampunk reads.
