R.I.P. V Challenge

R.I.P. V Challenge

R.I.P. Challenge

September 1, 2010 – October 31, 2010
Challenge: Peril the Second – Read 2 Books
Status: 3/2


It’s time once again for Carl’s annual Readers Imbibing Peril Challenge. You know this is a must for me. This will be my third year of R.I.P., and it’s becoming entrenched as a lovely tradition each fall. For history’s sake, here are links to my R.I.P. VI post and wrap-up and my R.I.P. III post and wrap-up.

But first, head over to the challenge post for a rundown on the challenge options. I’m doing Peril the Second again this year, which entails reading at least two scary/gothic/mystery-ish type books.

Here’s my reading pool:

The Witches, by Roald Dahl (not pictured)
Dracula, by Bram Stoker
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson (does this count?)
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson
Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen
Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier (reread)
Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte (reread)
And perhaps a few Ghost Stories

I can’t wait to get started! Are you R.I.P.ing this year? What books are in your pool?


I didn’t read any of the books from my pool, but I did manage to get to these R.I.P.-appropriate (ish) books:

City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare – 9/3/2010 (steampunk)

Matched, by Ally Condie – 9/30/2010 (dystopian)

Room, by Emma Donoghue – 10/10/2010 (okay, the first half, at least, is horror)
