The R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Halloween blog hop is here again! While the rest of the world is preparing to sleep, I have kicked off my coffin lid and have crawled through cobwebs to make it to my book shelf.
Last year I read some Gothic Horror, and this year my peril is fairy tales. I want to remember how scary then can be.
NOS4R2 by Joe Hill – maybe stretching the theme already, but the big bad is a vampiric pied pipe/Santa Claus. Plus his henchman gasses the victims with gingerbread flavoured smoke, so that has to be a fairy tale, right?
White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi – A Snow White Murder Mystery
Tinder by Sally Gardner – A retelling of the Tinderbox with a werewolf on the front cover. Yay, werewolf!
