Carl’s R.I.P. VI challenge ended on 31 October and I’m pleased that I completed Peril the First, which was :
Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (my very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming or Edgar Allan Poe’¦or anyone in between.
I read the following books (linked to my reviews):
- Naming the Bones by Louise Welsh
- Blood Harvest by S J Bolton
- Portobello by Ruth Rendell
- The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
These are all books that were on my to-be-read list. I think Blood Harvest has to be my favourite of the four and I thoroughly enjoyed it – a dark, scary book, disturbing, and completely gripping. I was particularly pleased that I finally read The Turn of the Screw as I first started to read it some years ago. It’s an ideal book for the RIP Challenge. Thanks go to Carl for hosting.
