R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, X

A Favorite Event

RIP-XIt’s September, and that means it’s time for one of my favorite reading events, R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril.

Originated by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings, the event is being hosted this year for the first time by The Estella Society.

The challenge 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.

For the last few years I have avoided most challenges; 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.

There are only two simple goals for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril:

1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.


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

I’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

These are a few of the books on my shelf that fit the Peril theme . . .

Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin (Thriller)
Hostile Takeover by Shane Kuhn (Thriller)
Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart (Mystery)
The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon (Mystery)
Make Me: A Jack Reacher Novel by Lee Child (Thriller)
Second Life by S.J. Watson (Thriller)
The Witches: Salem, 1692 by Stacy Schiff (Historical Paranormal)
Invasion of Privacy by Christopher Reich (Thriller)
The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young (Gothic)
