2024 I Read Horror Year-Round Reading Challenge - First Quarter Check-In

The first quarter of 2024 is in the books. So, how did it go?

I'm doing the Chilling level which is 12 books in a year. I'm doing well...I've already read four books!
  • Witch, dark, blood, bone, or body in title
  • Nature gone wild (when plants or animals attack)
  • Creepy character/object (House, doll, child, etc.)
  • Holiday horror (Christmas, yule, etc.)
  • Short story anthology or collection - Out There Screaming, Jordan Peele, Editor
  • Takes place during Halloween season
  • Winter theme, or winter on cover - A Winter Haunting, Dan Simmons
  • A book that is also a movie - I'm Thinking of Ending Things, Iain Reid
  • By BIPOC author
  • Classic horror novel
  • Dark Academia novel (here's a list on Goodreads) - Ninth House, Leigh Bardugo
  • Gothic novel
I keep track of my yearly challenges over on my sister site, True Book Addict. There's a link to my 2024
challenge page in the menu above.

Not sure what's up for me next, but my Spring into Horror Readathon is going on this month over on Seasons of Reading so I expect I'll get some categories knocked out. If you would like to join us, stop over there. You can still sign up.

I hope you're enjoying your horrific reading! Share your progress in the comments (update, links to posts/reviews, etc.)...
