31 Shots of Shock 2010 AND Dueling Monster Round 2

Can you believe it is Halloween time already?! Wow, time flies! I have not been reading many short stories lately, and I thought this is definitely be a fun way to get back to blogging about short stories.

So Rob @ RobAroundBooks says,

Well folks it’s almost October already, and that can only mean one thing around here at RobAroundBooks, it’s time for another rendition of my 31 Shots of Shock reading project; a project where I read one horror-themed short story every day throughout the month of October, during the lead up to Halloween.

He has a wonderful list of all horror-based short stories he has read in the past two years and I am going to use that! So You will be seeing a short story a day here, all horror based.

If you would like to do this as well, just let me know and I will drop in by your blog, to see what you are reading.

One other thing I am participating is Dueling Monsters Round Two hosted by Jill of Fizzy Thoughts and Heather of Age 30+…A Lifetime of Books

Here is what she says,

This year, we’ll be reading about monsters of a different kind. Heather will be hosting Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, while I’m going to urge you all to read The Picture of Dorian Gray with me [… ]Just like last year, we’ll start the month with a little background info and some questions to consider as you read the book(s). Mid-month we’ll check in with all of the participants. And at the end of the month, we’ll post a wrap-up of the event. You will have all month to read one (or both) of the books and post your thoughts.

I am torn between the two, they both are not really big books, and I wanted to read both too. But I really will make that decision after I start The Picture of Dorian Gray. I am reading The Picture of Dorian Gray because Jill is reading it, no other reason really 🙂

If you guys are interested in reading either of the titles, head onto Jill’s or Heather’s blog for more info!

  1. Hi Veens,
    I’m thrilled you’ve decided to take up ’31 Shots of Shock’ throughout October. And re your comment about it coming around again already, so soon – I know! It crept up and took me by surprise too :).

    Anyway, great to have you on board. Good luck and have fun!

  2. I love the new look, and will be looking forward ro hearing what you have to say about all of the horror you will be reading. I think that I would like to read The Picture of Dorian Gray as well. Last year I read Frankenstein with Heather.

  3. A new look for your blog! I like your mysterious header, and your blog is more compact now.

    Wow! You are making a big commitment for October, but I know you will be up for the challenge. 🙂

  4. What a great idea for a short story challenge! I hadn’t seen that and you cannot imagine how tempted I am to join. But, I’m not doing that great with my challenges so I have to just watch from the sidelines. You’ll have to let us know of the stories you recommend. I’m always up for a good, scary read 🙂

  5. both seem interesting ..i wondered whether i should sign up . but this month is going to be hectic,so i am going to give it a pass.. Its October already!!.. this years just flown by so fast !

I love to hear your thoughts!
