R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI Challenge

I've been seeing this challenge come up on several blogs, and finally had a look at it.(click the image above to find out more about the challenge
The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:
Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.
I was planning on doing some witchy reading for October, so this seems to fit in.
I'm going to aim for 2 books fitting the theme. Looking through my shelves, the following seem to fit:

City of Shadows by Ariana Franklin
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
The Reservoir by John Miliken Thompson
Different Seasons by Stephen King
The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King

Probably more if I could unbox some of my books. But I'll pick out of this list.

Zafon's second book The Angels Games was very good.. but I think Shadow of the Wind had a slight edge ... I hope you enjoy the books! I will look forward to your reviews

Hmm I'll have to look into Angel's Game. I'm just now reading Shadow of The Wind, and loving it. Good luck with the challenge!

I'm reading The Magician King right now, even though I haven't read The Magicians. It started off pretty good.

I should have put The Magicians on my list. I might have to add it. :)

@DesLily that seems to be the consensus of what I've heard so far. I loved Shadow of the Wind, so am hoping The Angel's Game lives up to it.

@Heidenkind That is good to hear. I've seen mixed reviews on the two books so far

Thanks everyone for visiting
