R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (#RIP XII)


Every September 1 through October 31 for the last 11 years Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings has hosted the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge, affectionately known as the R.I.P. Challenge. Carl has been kind enough to entrust the event to Heather and Andi, from now on, and they hope to do him proud.

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


Dark Fantasy

There are many different levels of participation so even if you only read one book or see one movie, you can consider yourself a participant.

I plan to do Peril the Second (2 books) and Peril on the Screen (movies or TV shows).  I hope to read more than two books but I’d like to come out of it feeling accomplished so I will stick with this level.

Possible Reads:

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen & Owen King (read along info coming soon!)
Strange Weather by Joe Hill
A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena
Keep Her Safe by Sophie Hannah
Bird Box by Josh Malerman
Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Possible Movies/Shows:

American Horror Story – Season 7 – 9/5
Fear the Walking Dead – Season 3, Part 2 – 9/10
The Walking Dead – Season 8 – 10/22

IT (the movie) – 9/8
The Conjuring (2013)

If this sounds like fun, join us! For all of the details and the sign-up information, check out this post.

  1. Its so crazy that RIP is already here. I plan on reading some creepy books, but I’m not going to sign up this year. I just can’t seem to follow through with reading challenges lately, so I figure its best to just unofficially join in on the fun. I’ll definitely be joining you on the King read along 😉 And yes, to Walking Dead – I can’t wait for it to start!

    1. I saw a Nadia in there and thought it was you. I hear you on challenges. This is the only one I do because you only have to read one book or see one movie if you choose accordingly. LOL.

      I really want to see IT but there is like no one here that would get it. No one has read the book. Even the news anchors and entertainment reporters are like, “What’s with the balloon?” Please!! I need someone good to see it with!

  2. I’m not officially signing up, but I always did enjoy this event. Granted, it doesn’t take much for me to read horror novels, so any excuse to read lots of them is always cause for celebration!
