2022 I Read Horror Year-Round Reading Challenge - Wrap-up

Year two of I Read Horror is done and dusted. How did you do? Once again, I don't think I quite completed the Chilling level (which is 12 books in a year), but let me list the categories below and see how I stacked up...
  • Book by a BIPOC (female) - Certain Dark Things, Silvia Moreno-Garcia
  • Book by a BIPOC (male) - The Only Good Indians, Stephen Graham Jones
  • Folk Horror - Winterset Hollow, Jonathan Edward Durham
  • A Gothic horror classic (published 50 or more years ago, published no later than 1972) - The Marble Faun, Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • A modern Gothic tale (published within 50 years ago, published 1973 or later) - Fireside Gothic, Andrew Taylor
  • Purple, orange, or green on the cover - The Devil in Silver, Victor LaValle
  • Serial killer from the past - fiction or non-fiction (before 20th century) Examples: Jack the Ripper, H.H. Holmes, Burke and Hare (I started The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson, but have not finished yet.)
  • Short story collection/Anthology
  • Slasher
  • Vampires - Impact Winter, Travis Beacham
  • Werewolves
  • Witches - In the House in the Dark of the Woods, Laird Hunt
So, I didn't do too badly. Managed to finish 9 out of 12.
