Readers Imbibing Peril XIII – #RIPXIII

The days are growing cooler and the nights are beginning to draw in, which can mean only one thing – Autumn is on its way! I love this time of year, so what better way to mark the changing seasons than by participating in a suitably eerie Readathon?
I think this is actually the first year I’ve known that RIPXIII actually starts in September, and not October, so I have the whole two months of reading/watching to enjoy this time around. Want to know more about this readathon? Here you go…

Welcome to the THIRTEENTH year of Readers Imbibing Peril, or RIP, as it is affectionately called. The challenge runs from 1st September to 31st October. You can find full info by visiting the Readers Imbibing Peril blog.

The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:

Dark Fantasy

The goals are simple.

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

Multiple perils await you. You can participate in just one, or participate in them all.
As a starting point I’m going to going for the following, but hopefully by the end of the event I’ll have managed Peril the First and read at least four titles. For now I’m aiming for…

Peril the Second:

Read two books of any length that you believe fit within the challenge categories.

Peril on the Screen:

This is for those of us who like to watch suitably scary, eerie, mysterious gothic fare during this time of year. It may be something on the small screen or large. It might be a television show, like Dark Shadows, or your favorite film.

A Potential TBR List

I don’t have any definite reading/viewing plans at the moment, but glancing through my TBR pile, a few books have caught my attention, so I may read any or all of the following:

The Outisder by Stephen King
It by Stephen King
Halloween Party by Agatha Christie
The Corset by Laura Purcell
Melmoth by Sarah Perry
The Mystery of Three Quarters by Sophie Hannah
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
The Feed by Nick Clark Windo
Early Riser by Jasper Fforde
While You Sleep by Stephanie Merritt
An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena



The Outsider by Stephen King

The Mystery of Three Quarters by Sophie Hannah

I’m really looking forward to one of my favourite reading events during my favourite season. Are you tempted to join in with #RIPXIII ?
