R.I.P. Challenge wrap-up

Well, I've been doing plenty of reading (although not as much as I'd planned), but precious little writing. So, I have just over an hour to churn out reviews for the 6 books relevant to the challenge:

The Thirteenth Tale (audiobook, finished Aug. 26, on the way back from Kansas)
Bloody Bones (finished Sept 19)
House of the Seven Gables (finished Oct. 3)
Danse Macabre (finished Oct. 7)
Dracula (finished Oct. 15)
Fragile Things (finished Oct. 30)

Looking at the gaps, I certainly could have finished my 2 chunksters, and done the Sunday Short Stories, but in my need to get off-farm, I overscheduled my weekends.

I really enjoyed all these books, and I really wish that I could have participated/interacted more with everyone else. I think that I got in my own way this time.

Well, here I go... am backdating my posts so that they're in some semblance of reading order, but these reviews were all written between now and (gods willing) just-before-midnight so I can post this wrapup entry over at SSD
