I participated in this challenge back in 2009 and 2015 had a blast. I am DTFor it again.

I carried over some picks from the past that I finally want to get to.

~*~

Rules:
1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.

Select from these genres and pick your peril:

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.

Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.

My Peril picks:

Peril the First: Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (our very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Shirley Jackson or Tananarive Due…or anyone in between.
