R.I.P. Challenge Sept 1 - Oct 31




Every September 1st through October 31st for the last 5 years Carl, has hosted the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge over at Stainless Steel Droppings , affectionately known as the R.I.P. Challenge. I began this reader event, I blinked, and now I am hosting this for the 6th time. Wow, that is so hard to believe.

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

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

The emphasis is never on the word challenge, instead it is about coming together as a community and embracing the autumnal mood, whether the weather is cooperative where you live or not.

As you know these are my favourite genres but I do try to read the more scary, creepy, gothic reads for this challenge. 

These are intriguing me at the moment, we will see what I end up reading:  I will definitely read 4 maybe more.


    Dracula






    Creep

  3. Damn. I feel like I want to do this challenge but I'm literally doing 15 challenges this year, one that I haven't even started yet and another one that I need to read at least 15 more books for! But who knows, maybe I'll join this one too just for the hell of it.

    Good luck!!

  4. Hello Marce! I am a new follower, and I found your blog through the R.I.P. Challenge. I share your interest in "Let the Right One In", and I think it is a great novel. I am a big fan of Scandanavian Literary Noir in all it's forms. Do you enjoy Jo Nesbo or Arnaldur Indri├░ason at all?

    I have just noticed "The Manufactured Identity" as your favourite book for 2010- and I am going to add that one to my pending pile for when R.I.P comes to a close.

    Who amongst us does not like a little Stephen King as well? I loved "It", but by far "Salems Lot" scared me most as a precocious pre-adolescent. Any innocent tap on my window would have me frozen in terror for years afterward!

    I look forward to following your blog and your R.I.P. reviews!

  9. I LOOOOVE Dracula. Such a wonderful book. My favorite.

    I need to try to watch the subtitled version of Let the Right One In during Peril on the Screen this year. I can't believe I haven't watched that yet. Bad me!

    Thank you so much for participating. I hope you are enjoying Thrill Week!

  11. Good luck! Dracula is one of my all-time favorite novels. I re-read it for last year's challenge. I would love to read the annotated version this year, if I can find the time.
