The fifth annual R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge ~ R.I.P. V

Can you believe it is already back to school time and fall?  I had a great summer, wish it lasted longer. However I totally love the fall. If it weren't that pesky school getting in the way, it would be my all time favorite part of the year!
 That also means it is time for my favorite reading challenge ~  The fifth annual R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge or R.I.P V for short.
Once again, I'm joining in for the Peril the First.

Read four books, any length, that you feel fits my very broad definition of scary. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming or Edgar Allan Poe…or anyone in between.
This year, it totally snuck up on me, so I don't have a list yet.
I just stumbled onto a free e-book though, White Witch Pond by Jody Kihara.
Mid-grade ghost story Shaya Solen’s walk home from school takes her past an eerie pond, where one day she finds an old bracelet made of raven feathers. Soon, strange events begin to unfold: a shadowy figure glimpsed across the water, ominous nightmares haunting Shaya, and rumours of a witch who once drowned in the pond. With the discovery of a strange family connection to the witch, Shaya is drawn into a mystery that must be solved before the approaching Halloween, which is the thirteenth anniversary of the witch’s death, and Shaya’s birthday.

Yes, fall became a much more enjoyable season once I had finished college and school was no more.
