2014 Horror Reading Challenge


I love reading horror. Last year, I didn’t keep track of how many horror novels I read, and I’m hoping to change that this year by participating in the 2014 Horror Reading Challenge hosted by Midnyte Reader.

I’m planning to go for the highest level, “Horror Hounds”, which means I’ll have to read more than 16+ horror books.

If you’d like to sign up for this challenge as well, go here.

I will keep track of the books I read for this challenge here, in the sidebar and in monthly updates posts.

I read plenty more horror books in 2014 but I didn’t keep up with the challenge anymore, since I’d already long surpassed it. If you want to see all the books I read in 2014, please go to my reading log, I Heart Yearly Reads, for a detailed overview.
