R.I.P. IV Challenge

Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings has announced the R.I.P. IV Challenge over on his blog. This is the first one of these I have participated in, but I hear they are extremely fun. See Carl's main post for full information about the challenge.

The main gist is to pick books from the following categories, read them, enjoy them and post reviews. The categories are:
Dark Fantasy.

There are also different levels of the challenge - I plan on participating in:

Peril the First:

Read Four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose.

No official list is required, but we are encouraged to list books that we would like to read. That is what I will do here. I am thinking about reading the following:

  1. Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris - read - review
  2. Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz - read
  3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - read
  4. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen - read - review

I'll have decide on more later when I check out my review pile and my library pile.
