  9. The book I reviewed at my site, Professor B. Worm, is The Cellar by Richard Laymon. Both the book and the review are horrorful.

  10. Hi Carl!

    I had to re-post my 2 reviews -- they are now 201 & 202. My old site got hacked to pieces. Twice in 24hrs this time. An ongoing problem. . .so I have set up new digs here: http://blacklinsreadingroom.blogspot.com/. My "new" site name is Blacklin's Reading Room. Sorry for double posting.

  17. Thank you so much for hosting this challenge - it's perfect for Fall. I'm working on Peril the Second - I'm not brave enough yet for Peril the First. My review for Walter Moers' The Alchemaster's Apprentice is up.... it's a dark comedy/fantasy which I thought was a good read for all ages. Enjoy!

  18. Just posted the most recent review, really enjoyed this challenge, I may be more ambitious next year and try for peril the first. Still enjoying reading everyone's reviews, I have discovered a few books to add to my wish list. Thank you.

  19. I am half way through - and decided (and reading) the previously undecided 4th book - Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror by Chris Priestly - what a WOW, WOW, WOW book - in fact all the books I have read so far have been wow!!

  22. Ya know, I forgot about the bad part of reading challenges when my TBR pile is already falling over in several piles of books. There are so many books that I want to read among the reviews I may never catch up on my reading.

  23. This is so fun! Thanks for hosting this. Just finished The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. Just one more to go for Peril the Second!
