I’m not one for making book lists (other than my 500+ to-be-read list) but I thought it would be fun to make a list of possible books for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII and include some for A More Diverse Universe along with them:
Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig
Bloodchild and Other Stories by Octavia Butler
Collected Ghost Stories by M. R. James
Dark Matter: A Century of Speculative Fiction from the African Diaspora Ed: Sheree R. Thomas
Feed by Mira Grant
Haunted Legends edited by Ellen Datlow and Nick Mamatas
Mr Fox by Helen Oyeyemi
Of Tales and Enigmas by Minsoo Kang
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
The Last Kind Words by Tom Piccirilli
The Liminal People by Ayize Jama-Everett
Those Across The River by Christopher Buehlman
and I’d like to reread The Graveyard Book for the group read. I also have an interesting looking non-fiction book, Monsters in America by W. Scott Poole. I know I won’t get to all of these!

The purpose of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII is to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as:
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
There are many ways to participate and a couple of Read-Alongs to intrigue you. I am going to try for Peril the First and hope to join in with others as they read The Graveyard Book. Please visit the link above to find out more.
