'Tis the Season! RIP VII!
Everyone, gather 'round! It's time for RIP VII!
I've decided to read from my own shelves again this year so here's what I've gathered together as options. I pulled everything that fit the bill and also looked FUN because I want to make a big dent in my TBR this season. There's some non-fiction, YA and middle grade novels, adult fiction and even a gothic classic. A couple of these are for the Top 100 Chapter Books Read-Along and there are some review books that I've been saving too. It has been super hard not to dive into these already!
Map of the Sky by Félix J. Palma (it has Poe, kids!) - review copy
Kraken by China Miéville
Ghost Hunters by Deborah Blum
The Oxford Book of Gothic Tales (Chris Baldick, editor)
How to Make a Golem and Terrify People by Alette J. Willis - review copy
The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall by Mary Downing Hahn
Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown
The Beasts of Clawstone Castle by Eva Ibbotson
Dial-a-Ghost by Eva Ibbotson
Which Witch? by Eva Ibbotson
Black Jack by Leon Garfield
The Ogre Downstairs by Diana Wynne Jones
The Monk by Matthew Lewis
Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper
The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper - for the Chapter Book Read-Along
Charlotte Markham and the House of Darkling by Michael Boccacino - review copy
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill (then I can finally watch the movie!)
An Expert in Murder by Nicola Upson
The Infernals by John Connolly
The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - a reread for the Chapter Book Read-Along
The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Advent by James Treadwell - review copy
Twenty-two books? Yeah, that sounds about right. There isn't even a Peril that fits how much I love this event so I'm going to just do my own thing.
Are you joining up this year? What are you planning on reading?
