And we're at the starting line for the Spring Into Horror Read-A-Thon, hosted by the lovely Michelle (True Book Addict) over at Castle Macabre. I am a little intrepid about this read-a-thon because horror fiction usually gives me nightmares (I know, I know, sometimes my vivid imagination can be a little over-zealous).
My plan for this week is to read Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs. This book seems to be very different from everything else I have read before, and I bought it on a whim a couple of months ago. I am looking forward to having the excuse to read it. I just read the prologue and first chapter. It's looking good so far.
I am also spending this week researching for the fantasy fiction story I am writing, so I will be reading the following books (some of them even have horror elements to them, so it's good timing).
Celtic Gods and Heroes, by Marie-Louise Sjoestedt
British Folk Tales, by Kevin Crossley-Holland
Tales of the Celtic Otherworld, by John Matthews
Tales from the Welsh Hills, by Ellen Pugh
Magicians and Fairies, by Robert Ingpen and Molly Perham
I am really looking forward to this week, and I wish my fellow read-a-thon-ers all the best and happy reading!
