    I am totally going to participate because I love this challenge. I’m fudging slightly because I have already read Night Film, but I’m counting it for RIP anyway. And then I want to read Donna Tartt’s new book, which I just assume is going to be spooky, and I’m going to read Shirley Jackson’s book Hangsaman that I just got a copy of (hooray).

      I love it too — and I’m not even much of a horror reader! Hence my books are mostly mystery and fantasy. I’ve never read any Shirley Jackson b/c I’m too chicken to try her! Looking forward to seeing your thoughts though. 🙂

    The Roman Hat Mystery sounds interesting! I love old mysteries so I wouldn’t mind reading this one as well. Good luck with this challenge..and have fun 🙂

    • Christina says:

      Looks like you have some interesting books on your list as well! I’ve never read any Stephen King, but every time I see someone talk about 11/22/63 I think I need to remedy that…

    • Christina says:

      I really, really like her October Daye books! You’d definitely need to start with #1, Rosemary and Rue. I haven’t tried her InCryptid series yet, although Discount Armageddon is on my shelves!

    I’ve been meaning to read Bradbury and Million Dollar Baby for ages now!
    Good luck with your list. 🙂

    Also, can I just say, I LOVE your blog title. 😛

    • Christina says:

      I haven’t really read any Bradbury either, except Fahrenheit 451. But I feel like Something Wicked This Way Comes is a perfect title for this challenge! I’m looking forward to Million Dollar Baby as well, although I was surprised by the title since it has nothing to do with the Hilary Swank boxing movie!

      And thank you! It’s a bit silly, but my blog name makes me smile. 🙂

    What a fantastically eclectic group of authors you’ve chosen. Wow! This may be the most interesting list I’ve seen yet. Nice!

    Thanks for joining in this year, I’m hoping we all find some really stellar reads to give us the requisite heart palpitations in our late-night reading.

    • Christina says:

      Wow, thank you! 🙂 I was actually feeling a little insecure about my list since it’s so heavily weighted towards mysteries. But I am really looking forward to delving into some of these books…hope they will get me in a suitably gothic and autumnal mood!

            I just read Floating Staircase by Ronald Malfi and was surprised to realize that Mystery plays an integral part in the kind of Horror I like, so I’m thinking I need to branch out to read more mysteries so I can beef up my horror writing. Agatha Christie was one of my early favorites, so I guess I always have liked mysteries.

            • Christina says:

              Oh, I LOVE Agatha Christie! I went through a phase in middle/high school where I read every book of hers that I could get my hands on. I own about 99% of her output!
