R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, VIII
The event runs from September 1st through October 31st. There are multiple levels of perils to choose from, even a one book option for the time challenged.
There are only two simple goals for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VIII:
1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.
Reading categories to choose from are:
Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, and Supernatural — Something for everyone!
Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (the very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. It could be King or Conan Doyle, Penny or Poe, Chandler or Collins, Lovecraft or Leroux…or anyone in between.
Other challenges to choose from are Peril the Movie, Peril the Short Story and Peril the Group Read. For anyone new to R.I.P., you do not have to be a blogger to participate.
Choosing the books
About mid-summer I start setting aside spooky books so I will have a choice of audio and print for this event. That doesn’t mean that a scary recommendation won’t sneak to the top of the heap.
Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield (Gothic)
The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo (Fantasy/Supernatural)
Joyland by Stephen King (mystery/Horror)
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (Scifi/Dystopia/YA)
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill (Horror)
Are you joining the fun?
UPDATE: October 31, 2013
So, how did I do?
I exceeded my expectations! It helped that these are all genres I enjoy. I read and reviewed eight books.
