I Read Horror Year-Round Reading Challenge - Third Quarter Check-in #IReadHorror


Here we are at the nine month mark! Time is flying by. 

I've read five from my list of 12 books. I'm doing the Chilling level. Starting to grow concerned about finishing. Egads! (Full challenge details here...you can still join in.)

What I've read so far:

Winter theme, or winter appearance on the cover (snow, ice, etc.)
The Ascent by Ronald Malfi (short review on Goodreads)

Written by a woman
The Witch's Trinity by Erika Mailman (Review)

Historical horror (must be an historical novel written by a contemporary author)
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

A body of water (featured in story, on cover, or in title)
Cradle Lake by Ronald Malfi (short review on Goodreads)

Written by an Indie Author
August's Eyes by Glenn Rolfe (review)

I'm currently reading Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia for Woman on Cover category. Hoping to check off a couple more categories as well this month.  

So, how's it going for you with the horror reading? Share your progress in the comments (update, links to posts/reviews, etc.).

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I only went for 6 prompts because I know myself. I've finished 4:
    A body of water (featured in story, on cover, or in title): The Ghost Pirates by William Hope Hodgson
    Written by a woman: Into Bones like Oil by Kaaron Warren
    Ghosts or spirits: A Thin Ghost and Others by M. R. James
    Historical horror (must be an historical novel written by a contemporary author) Slewfoot by Brom

    I'm half way through some Clive Barker for "best-selling author" and I have a good candidate for folk horror.

    1. I've read Hodgson's "The House on the Borderland," and really enjoyed it. Did you like "The Ghost Pirates"?

    2. I love Hodgson's work. I've read The House on the Borderland too. I recently finished a reread of Ronald Malfi's Bone White. I think it qualifies for the Folk Horror category.

    1. Sounds like an awesome group of books. How are you liking Gerald's Game?

      Delete
    2. I'm not loving it. It gets a bit too graphic and also repetitive. I've got 100 pages left and I started watching the Netflix movie last night. Didn't want to finish it before I finished the book though. lol

    3. I still plan to read it. I liked the Netflix movie. Thought it was pretty damn creepy. lol
