R.I.P Challenge V

It's that time of year again. Time for one of the coolest challenges out there. Check out 
Stainless Steel Droppings for the rules. If you are a fan of the creepy, eerie, gothic or strange; this challenge is for you!
Because I don't wish to overwhelm myself (which is super easy to do these days), I have settled on the very easiest of levels. Yep, one book. That's all I have to read.

I have chosen to read The Distant Hours by Kate Morton. If you've read some of my earlier posts you know that I have been looking forward to reading this one. Well, I'm excited to say, I got an advanced copy from the publisher and I am already loving it!
I actually squealed when I opened the package. Squealed, I tell you!

It would fall under the Gothic category.

Though I know I will read many other creepy, fantastical books during the next two months leading up to Halloween AND see a crap ton of scary movies, I think just one book will suit me just fine for this challenge.

Check it out!

Happy reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

I love Kate Morton! And I think I'm going to join this challenge as well, it looks like so much fun!

Let me know if you're interested in joining a read-along for The Historian, which Tedious and Brief and I might be hosting -- it would fit right in the "creepy reads" category!!

I'll look forward to your review! I have been wanting to read something by Morton.

Great to have you in. Morton is an author whose books always look interesting and I really need to move her up my tbr list.

I'm so glad you are joining in. I love the one book option as I love the challenges to be stress free.

I wouldn't mind reading something by Kate Morton. She's really good from what I have read so far!

Good luck with your challenge! I've got my challenge plate full right now, but will keep this one in mind for next year.

Hope all is well! :)
