R.I.P Challenge, #14

RIP Challenge #14

It’s almost September and you know what that means…

The Readers Imbibing Peril challenge is just around the corner. This is the only challenge I participate in. The. Only. One. Here are the details so you can join. Full details can be found on this page.

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

Dark Fantasy.
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.

The goals are simple. 

1. Have fun reading.

2. Share that fun with others.

There are different levels of participation which even include movies which I am always down for. Besides my usual Halloween picks, like Halloween and The Shining, I plan to read Stephen King’s new book The Institute!

The Institute

This is an event that I look forward to every year. There are different levels of commitment but basically, you agree to read or watch content that falls into any of these categories:

Dark Fantasy

The event was created by Carl over at Stainless Steel Droppings and it’s in its eleventh year. That’s how popular it is.

R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XI takes place from September 1st, 2016 through October 31st, 2016.

Peril the Second

I’ve chosen the Peril the Second option where you agree to read two books. Here is what I hope to read but I keep changing my mind:

Peril the Screen

I’ve also chosen Peril on the Screen which applies to movies/TV shows!! My favorite part of this event. Here is what I hope to watch:

  • Halloween I & II
  • The Shining
  • IT (Doesn’t the new movie come out soon? (Update: 9/2017!)
  • The Legend of Hell House
  • Bates Motel (DVR is overflowing)
  • American Horror Story – Hotel (DVR again)

The only other requirement is that you share the fun with others. Would you like to join us?
