The Sunday Salon - RIP III Wrap-Up


The Sunday Salon.comNow that it's all over, I'm sad. I love Halloween. And we had a beautiful one!! We had a spell of cold last week where it was in the 30's. But Halloween night it was in the upper 60's. The girlie's had a ball....and hauled home enough candy to last until the next millennium!!

But what is really sad to me is the end of the RIP III Reading Challenge. I love reading about things that go bump in the night. The eerie, the spooky, the gloomy and the Gothic....those are the types of books that have been my favorites since Jr. high. This year alone I have read lots of paranormal. Way more than I usually do. The only downside is that most of the paranormal books I have read are parts of a series, and now I have committed myself to actually finishing the series!!

For the challenge, I read 9 Books, thus completing my choice of Peril the First (and then some!)

I honestly loved each of the books I read. All were really good. Chalk up another fantastic Challenge for Carl!! Many Thanks to you for hosting my favorite challenge again this year!! I'm already compiling a list for RIP IV!

Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!!

We had great weather for Halloween, too, but there were only 4 trick or treaters here!

Congrats on the R.I.P. challenge. Those sound like books I would love.

I'm sad that October and RIP are over too! Congrats on finishing the challenge. I'm glad I'm not the only one who already has a mental list for next year :P

Excellent list of books here! I see several series (Gardella Vampire Chronicles, House of Night) that I want to get into.

Um, a bit vampire obsessed are we? lol...I love vampire books too! I have nearly all of these on my wishlist thanks to your reviews. Congrats on finishing!

Congrats on finishing! I'm sad it's over too, and am already thinking of books for next year, mostly the ones I didn't get around to reading this time. :)

no matter how "early" carl begins his challenges it always seems like no time at all and they are over! :o(

I am not a vampire person but this challenge has gotten me into gothic mystery which I have been enjoying .

Woo-hoo - you did great! I actually completed my challenge but I took Peril 2 which only required 2 books.
