Readers Imbibing Peril XV – #RIPXV

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? Two whole months of reading to enjoy. Want to know more about RIPXV? Here you go…

Welcome to the FIFTEENTH year of Readers Imbibing Peril, or RIP, as it is affectionately called. The challenge runs from 1st September to 31st October. There are no official sign ups this year, it’s an event with as much or as little commitment as you like. To participate just use the hastag #RIPXV and @perilreaders when talking about what you’ve been reading or watching.

The R.I.P. Challenge includes books that could be classified as:

Dark Fantasy

The goals are simple.

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

A Potential TBR List

I don’t have a definite reading/viewing plan at the moment, but glancing through my TBR list, a few books have caught my attention, so I may read a selection from the following:

The Wayward Pines trilogy by Blake Crouch
Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver
Halloween Party by Agatha Christie
Endless Night by Agatha Christie
I Am Dust by Louise Beech
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Selections from the Dark Corners short story collection





Pines (Wayward Pines #1) by Blake Crouch
Wayward (Wayward Pines #2) by Blake Crouch
The Last Town (Wayward Pines #3) by Blake Crouch
Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver
Endless Night by Agatha Christie
The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
Hallowe’en Party (Poirot #39) by Agatha Christie

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

    I’m also participating! I’m reading The Woman in White (Wilkie Collins) and Don’t Look for Me (Wendy Walker) so far. And will be reading a slew of King/Hill in October!
