Challenge Roundup for October

October was a great challenge month. Blame that on RIP V Challenge. A month of scary reading is a lot of fun but I'm all ghosted out now. Time to give the supernatural a rest for awhile.

All totaled I read 6 books for the RIP Challenge, 4 in the month of October:
  1. Bespelling Jane Austen (Sept)
  2. Witchcraft by Clary Croft (Sept)
  3. The Bleeding Dusk by Colleen Gleason (Oct)
  4. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins (Oct)
  5. Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie (Oct)
  6. The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters (Oct)
That might be a record for me! Another great challenge hosted by Carl. Thanks Carl!

I did not neglect The 4th Canadian Books Challenge while reading all those spooky books. I squeezed in The Prisoner of Dieppe by Hugh Brewster bringing my total to 5. I was planning on reading one more but it didn't work out and I did read another but didn't review it- not yet anyway.

Poor Daphne got left in the cold by me this month. Luckily, other readers have been working on their Daphne du Maurier Challenge reads. Bev from My Readers Block read three books: Castle Dor, Rebecca and the sequel to Rebecca-Rebecca's Tale- by Sally Beauman. She also watched Hitchcock's version of Rebecca. Park Benches and Bookends read the short story collection Don't Look Now and discovered what a master of that condensed fiction she was. Great reading guys!

As for this month coming, I don't expect to get a lot of books read because I'll be busy. But you never know. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy so I will try to make time for reading. I really don't want to end up like Jack.


  1. Well, that video got my heart racing. And there wasn't even anything overtly scary in it!

  2. This is really a nice post. Obviously, you are putting a lot of hard work on your blog. I'm sure I'd come back here more often.
