Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Challenge Roundup for September

I haven't done a Challenge Roundup in ages. Mostly because I haven't read any challenge books in all that time. This month I finally did. 

RIP VI Challenge

Carl's Challenge is going well. I've read 4 books so far and several short stories. I plan on watching The Uninvited this month sometime. Right now I'm in the middle of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Peril the First
The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill
Horns by Joe Hill (audiobook)
Revenge of the Lobster Lover by Hilary MacLeod

Peril the Short Story
The Old Nurse's Story by Elizabeth Gaskell
Afterward and The Eyes by Edith Wharton

The 5th Canadian Book Challenge

I fell way behind on this one. It started in July and I only read my first book the end of September.

Revenge of the Lobster Lover by Hilary MacLeod

That's it for reading challenges this month.


Jenn started Murder, Monsters and Mayhem month over at Jenn's Bookshelves. I have a contribution coming up myself.  A little Lovecraft. And since Lovecraft loved his monsters, I crocheted a couple for Halloween.

The instructions to make your own little monsters can be found at Craft blog.


  1. The little monsters are awesome. :-)

  2. Love the monsters! I should learn how to do that....

  3. Just finished Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children on Friday. LOVED it! Such a perfect pick for R.I.P.!

  4. Your little monsters are adorable!

  5. I am enjoying the RIP challenge so far. I have no idea how much I have read. Getting organized is on my to-do list.

  6. Aww, I love those little monsters! Too bad I don't crochet. I'll have to see if there are patterns out there for knitted ones.

  7. I tried for weeks to get into The lantern and never made it more than 1/4 way through. But I'm looking forward to some scary reads this month

  8. The little monsters are too adorable!

  9. OMG...the crocheted Cthulhu is awesome!

  10. I've always wanted to learn to crochet, I bought books and everything, I could get the hang of it.

    I want to read MPHPC, I was hoping to win it during the Read Banned Books giveaway but didn't. So now I will have to get it myself, which is okay too. I heard it's spectacular.
