Peril the first

As I mentioned in my last proper post Carl’s RIP challenge is on again. And as part of the first Peril I have to “Read Four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose”. So, my list is:

  • Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer – Its got vamps and werewolves, but I’m not sure that it is really scary. Still they fit with the whole supernatural theme of Hallowe’en, right?
  • The Host by Stephanie Meyer – Alien abduction! But as it is Meyer I’m guessing it isn’t going to be that scary. But you never know, not til you read it.
  • Arkham Asylum by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Dave McKean. Batman, in the asylum, written by Morrison. It’s got to be weird and scary.
  • The Giant O’Brien by Hilary Mantel – I don’t think this is a horror, but it is described as a dark gothic tale which involves a doctor becoming obsessed with the giant Charles O’Brien and his desire to dissect him. Fun fun fun.

I may also add a few more when I look through the list of unread books. We’ll see.

Edited to add And I’m already adding books. First up I am Legend which I meant to read ages and ages ago but never got around to it. Thanks Andi.
