Two years ago in November (2015), I discovered the R.I.P community reading challenge. Anyone who has been around me for even a little bit knows that I am head over heels in love with Autumn, Halloween and anything creepy. And I also love to read. It’s like the R.I.P. challenge was created just for me!
Of course it was too late to officially participate the year I discover it, but I was so excited to give it a go the following year (2016). Fast forward 10 months, and I was 8 months pregnant and moving across country. Needless to say, I stalled again.
So, it is because of this that I am so incredibly excited to announce my participation THIS year! Hooray! Happy dance all around. Here are the 6 books I hope to read over the next few weeks.
What spooky books are you reading this Fall? Do you have any creepy book recommendations? Leave me a comment below!

The Night Gardener was amazing! I read that one aloud to my 6-year-old son last year. We both loved it. We Have Always Lived in the Castle was a great one too. Love Shirley Jackson. So glad you are able to participate this year!
Nice list! Not familiar with most of them myself, though I read We Have Always Lived in the Castle for RIP a few years ago and really loved it. I have a list of good intentions for my reading (http://www.bookpunks.com/peril-12th-season-horror-arrived/), though knowing me, I'll end up reading a totally different pile of books. Love reading horror this time of year!
I just started it and I am loving the Night Gardener. Thanks for stopping by!
I read a lot of children's/YA literature, so I decided to go that route with most of the books I chose. I am excited to read We Have Always Lived in the Castle. It looks like you have some great books for RIP. I love Clive Barker and I'll have to check out Wormwood.
