I Read Horror Year-Round Reading Challenge - 2022 First Quarter Check-In

I'm so sorry for being late with this! Thankfully, Gilda messaged me which was a much appreciated reminder. 

First quarter is done and I guess I'm not doing too bad. I'm doing the Chilling level which is 12 books in a year. I'm currently on my second book (and almost finished) The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones (BIPOC male author), and planning to read my third one by end of month which is Ten by Gretchen McNeil (Slasher category). First book read, in the BIPOC female author category, was Certain Dark Things by Sylvia Moreno-Garcia. 

Not quite sure what's up for me next, but probably either The Vampire Armand by Anne Rice (Vampires category) or The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson (Serial killer from the past category).

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

...and, as always, thank you for joining me!

I Read Horror Year-Round - Last quarter check-in and wrap-up for 2021

Well, the first year of I Read Horror YR is a wrap. So how did you do? I don't think I quite completed the category I set out for, but let me list the categories below and see how I stacked up...
  • Winter theme, or winter appearance on the cover (snow, ice, etc.) - The Ascent, Ronald Malfi
  • Ghosts or spirits - Come With Me, Ronald Malfi
  • Psychological - Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough
  • Monster or monsters
  • A body of water (featured in story, on cover, or in title) - Cradle Lake, Ronald Malfi
  • Really scary book cover
  • Woman on cover - Mexican Gothic, Silvia Moreno-Garcia
  • Written by a woman - The Witch's Trinity, Erika Mailman
  • Written by a best-selling horror author - 
  • Written by an indie author - August's Eyes, Glenn Rolfe
  • Historical horror - The Historian, Elizabeth Kostova
  • Folk horror - Bone White, Ronald Malfi
Not bad at all! I was going for the Chilling level which is 12 books in a year. Only two shy so I'll take it.
