R.I.P. IX reading event

Dear blog, sorry to have neglected you for forever... etc. etc. Summer is over and it's time to get scoring, I mean reading, right? I'm afraid I've forgotten how to read more than 4 pages a day, so taking part in the wonderful R.I.P. seems like as good opportunity to ease myself back into my favourite hobby.

The event is hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings; visit this post to learn more about the event (and possibly join in). The event takes place during September and October. We read from the following genres:
Dark Fantasy.
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
There are different levels of participation available, but in my current mental state I am incapable of dealing with such a detail, so please go check out the boss post if you got curious.
The list of things I plan to choose from:
1. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.
2. The Distant Hours by Kate Morton.
3. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King.
4. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
5. The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco.
6. A story from Lovecraft's Great Tales of Horror.
7. NOS4A2 by Joe Hill.
8. Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie - I need to finish this one.
9. Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan - a sci-fi mystery!
10. Dreamcatcher by Stephen King.
11. The Shining by Stephen King
12. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.
13. The Road by Cormac McCarthy.
I'll be happy to finish as many as 2 books, that is one per month. Aiming low!
