I've just signed up for the 2011 Gothic Reading Challenge being hosted over at www.gothicreadingchallenge.blogspot.com and I'm pretty excited about it.
They've provided a list of gothic books to choose from and if you've never been quite sure what makes a book gothic, they've provided a list of criteria that will leave you in no doubt. It left me inspired to pick up a spooky read and snuggle in for the weekend.
I know I'm coming in halfway through the challenge, but I've already read one according to the criteria, so I'm on my way. Anyone want to join me? Just click here.
#1 The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
#2 The Observations by Jane Harris
#3 The Small Hand by Susan Hill
#4 The Butterfly Cabinet by Bernie McGill
That's my four bucks!
