R.I.P. IX

R.I.P. IX

September 1, 2014 – October 31, 2014

Can it possibly be that time of year again? It is upon us: fall leaves, pumpkin patches, and the annual R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril challenge hosted (for the ninth time!) by Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings.

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.

Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.

That is what embodies the stories, written and visual, that we celebrate with the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril event.

This is my sixth year participating in R.I.P. And I am excited to visit or revisit some of the following books:

  • The Haunting of Hill House, by Shirley Jackson
  • Dracula, by Bram Stoker
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde
  • Murder on the Orient Express, by Agatha Christie
  • Hansel & Gretel, by Neil Gaiman
  • The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern (reread)
  • And hopefully a little Edgar Allen Poe

Here are my previous R.I.P. lists: III, IV, V, VI, VII

I’ll hoping to get to two books this year, so I’m joining Peril the Second, with the possibility of joining the Peril of the Group Read for The Haunting of Hill House hosted by the Estella Society.

RIP IX Peril the Second

Are you R.I.P.ing this year? What books are you thinking about reading?
