I had to really hunt for these because I didn't label all of them as R.I.P. books. Some were excellent, some were not.  This year I'd already read a lot of Gothic or Supernatural books that I should have saved for the challenge. I'll add this years books to the list when the challenge is over.


  1. It's a lot of fun to go back over challenge lists. I also did the same for this challenge after sort of doing it for the Once Upon a Time one.

  2. Kailana - It is fun to go back and examine previous lists. I wish I'd done a better job of tagging them. I should do the same for the Once Upon a Time Challenge.
