Readers Imbibing Peril (R.I.P.) Autumn Challenge

I've decided to join in this spooky reading challenge which involves reading 5 books that
that "meet the very open, broad criteria of being scary, eerie, moody, dripping with atmosphere, gothic, unsettling, etc. and vow to read them."

I haven't quite settled on my list but so far it will be:

1. The Haunted Woman (1922) - David Lindsay
2. The Castle of Otranto (1765 ) - Horace Walpole

Watch this space!

I loved Castle of Otranto. Don't know how I stumbled across a reference to it last year but am so glad I did as my list of classic gothic tales to read grew expontentially from there.

Looking forward to seeing your other choices. The Haunted Woman sounds intriguing.
