R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, XI

A Favorite Event

ripeleven400It’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 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.

Genres to choose from:

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, Peril the Group Read, and this year there is a new category, Peril in Play, for those into gaming. For anyone new to R.I.P., you do not have to be a blogger to participate.

Some Book Choices

I will be choosing off my shelf, and the following are a just a few of my books that fit the Peril theme.

I Am No One by Patrick Flanery (Mystery)
Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart (Mystery)
Security by Gina Wohlsdorf (Horror)
Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger (Urban Fantasy)
The Next by Stephanie Gangi (Paranormal)
Arrowood by Laura McHugh (Gothic Mystery)

    Have fun! It’s such a nice challenge to be part of. Not for me this year though. I hope you’ll enjoy the books. They’re all new to me.
