R.I.P. III Challenge Completed

Can it really be over? Already? Where did the time go? Well, I'm pretty happy with my results. I joined and managed to read two from my original list (plus an additional title that might fit the challenge). However, I failed to read all four to satisfy Peril the First. Nonetheless, I'm happy to have read the books I read and look forward to R.I.P. IV!

So, what did I read?

Rises the Night by Colleen Gleason

The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

And my favorite?

The Brief History of the Dead.

Thanks for hosting yet another great challenge, Carl!


  1. I can't believe how fast this challenge goes. It's so much fun! Here's looking forward to RIP IV!

  2. I know, before you know it we'll be talking about the Once Upon a Time challenge! :)

    I have all of your choices on my radar!

  3. Congrats on finishing the challenge!

  4. Congratulations on finishing! I've really got to get to A Brief History of the Dead. It's on my TBRs and has been for months.

  5. Andi - It sure does go quickly. I didn't finish (or start!) a lot that I chose. I'm not sure if I'll save Joe Hill's collection of shorts stories for an entire year. I may just have to read what I didn't finish and start a new list for the RIP IV.

    Iliana - That's one I haven't participated in. Yet. :)

    Teddy Rose - Thanks! It feels good too have accomplished this goal.

    Nancy - I can't wait to hear what you think of ABHotD. I recommended it to a co-worker and she's really enjoying it!
