Time to Get Your Goth On!


Welcome to Club Dare 2.0.

It’s very easy.

During OCTOBER we DARE you to face your fears and get your Goth on!

Simply read a CLASSIC book from your #CClist that you classify as thrilling, a mystery, or Gothic. It could even be a book or author that SCARES you (because of its length, its topic, its reputation etc).

Combine it with other challenges if you wish.

Do you DARE? If so:

  • Let us know what you’ve DARED yourself to read during OCTOBER in the comments below.
  • If you want, create a post telling us why you chose this book as your DARE. Go into all the gory details about its scare factor and link it back here!
  • When you’re finished, write about the book at your blog.
  • Pop back at the end of October to share your DARE.
  • Link your review in our REVIEW page.
  • Feeling social? Tweet, fb or instagram about your DARE.
  • #ccdare
  • That’s it! 🙂

As always, our aim is to help you read more books from your #CClist in a fun, friendly way. Join in as little or as much as you like, it’s up to you. But for now, we hope you DARE to DARE!

  1. A author thar scares you… Interesting & SCARY!! I am not going for Gothic subject but rather an intimidating book/ author – And Quiet Flows The Dawn by Mikhail Alexandrovich Sholokhov. My Dad used to love this book and I am but curious & wary. But October we shall tackle this book!


  2. I’m going to read Walter Scott’s Kenilworth for this dare. It’s long as Scott never used one word when he could use twenty. Last time I gave it up after about ten pages!


  3. I accepted the dare before I knew about it! My CC book for September is The Devil’s Elixirs by ETA Hoffmann, an 1815 Gothic novel based somewhat on Matthew Lewis’sThe Monk (which I have not read yet, but is also on my CC list).

  4. Looks like I’m already planning to read Sleeping Murder for The 1976 Club in October, but I will also undertake to read The Bride of Lammermoor, which is the only other book on my list that I think would qualify.
