R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, IX

RIP-XIAn Annual Event

It’s September, and that means it’s time for one of my favorite reading events, R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings.

The event runs from September 1st through October 31st. There are multiple levels of peril 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:

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!

I tend to avoid challenges because I usually fail at them, plus they add a level of stress I don’t need. But RIP books are from genres I enjoy, so for me it’s become an annual event.

RIP-XI_PerilTheFirstI’m Choosing Peril the First:

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.

Some Book Choices

My intentions are to read four or more of the following books. This doesn’t mean that a new release or scary recommendation won’t sneak to the top of the heap.

Robogenesis by Daniel H. Wilson (Apocalyptic Thriller Horror)
Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix (Horror)
A Good Marriage by Stephen King (Horror)
The Three by Sarah Lotz (Horror)
The Lost by Sarah Beth Durst (Fantasy)
Personal (Jack Reacher #19) by Lee Child (Thriller)
Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little (Mystery)
Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Koryta (Thriller)
You by Caroline Kepnes (Thriller)
In the Blood by Lisa Unger (Thriller)

Are you joining the fun?

    My man likes the Jack Reacher series too and I have been meaning to give the series a try. Can you pick up anywhere in the series or do you have to start at the beginning?

      I jumped right in and had no problem, although I do intend to go back and read the earlier books someday.
