The Fear Itself Challenge is being hosted by Donna at Bites - Chomping on Books and Spitting Out Reviews. I really want to work on expanding my reading into areas I don't normally read and this challenge is a great way to do it!!
Between July 1st and December 31st the challenge is to read 3 (yes, just 3) books that under normal circumstances you wouldn't give a second look to. (Doesn't necessarily have to be horror unless that is the type of book you avoid).
There is a catch - you cannot not finish the book and it MUST be reviewed. This will get you to really think about why you liked the book or solidify why you stay away from that particular genre.

Here is my list:
