The purpose of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII is to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as:
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
There are a number of perils (i.e. levels of participation). I am embarking on Peril the Second, which requires me to read just two R.I.P. books from now through the end of October.
This is my fifth year participating in R.I.P., so I just went through my previous R.I.P. posts. Both Northanger Abbey and Dracula have made my list numerous times. I am determined to read Northanger Abbey this year and at least one more from this list:
- Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen
- Dracula, by Bram Stoker
- The Witch of Blackbird Pond, by Elizabeth George Speare (reread)
- The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
- The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde
- Murder on the Orient Express, by Agatha Christie
- And hopefully a little Edgar Allen Poe
I hope you’ll join us!
