I’ve caved. “NO MORE CHALLENGES CARE!” Oh well. It’s the badge I covet most, I think.
I am always blown away by the enthusiasm for this challenge: R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril… IV! And even-though I’m challenge-challenged, I’m succumbing anyway. Actually, I had assumed from everyone who has so excitedly posted their pools of reading choices that the Peril the First level of FOUR books was the lesser of the levels, but actually it’s the HIGHEST!
When curiosity got the best of me, I finally (and I suggest you go ahead and click here, too. You know you want to) clicked to the official challenge site at Carl’s Stainless Steel Droppings and found out that I could post my pool as my entry commitment.
I’m choosing the Peril the Second of TWO books:
Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes*
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies** by Seth Grahame-Smith
Luckily, I have both of these books in house. But, in the spirit of choice and pool-posting, I offer the following books that may or may not be appropriate but I’ve seen them on other’s pool lists so I, too, will offer them up for consideration. All of these are also in house:
Mary Reilly by Valerie Martin
The Likeness by Tana French
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
But wait! There’s more!! I also want to put something/anything by HP Lovecraft on the list because it’s been awhile since I read a book for my Chartroose Challenge and am hoping that if she see’s that I’ve mentioned her, I can entice her out of her quasi-retirement or where-ever-the-hell-she-is to post something!!! (please Char? we miss you!)
* Something Wicked… was a DNF from last year that I really loved but somehow put down and it done got runned over.
** and P&P&Z counts for my Everything Austen Challenge – yippee!
