My Bookish Wish List for 2019

Bookish Wish List

Who am I kidding? This is just another opportunity for me to drool over a few bookish items that have caught my eye. Shall we have a look?

I don’t buy cookbooks too often but this one makes my soul sing. It’s all about welcoming people into your home. Love Welcome Serve by Amy Nelson Hannon.

I just heard about this one and it sounds very good, Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid.

And this one looks pretty juicy, The Playground by Jane Shemilt.

Oh! And this print! 1Q84 Art Print – Murakami (Etsy).

Readers Imbibing Peril XIII (R.I.P.)

RIP XIII

I don’t know what it is about the above graphic but it freaks me out. It reminds me of American Horror Story, I guess.

Anyway, it’s that time again! Time for the only reading challenge I participate in. I believe it runs from September 1st to October 31st.

Here are the details :

Welcome to the THIRTEENTH year of Readers Imbibing Peril, or RIP, as it is affectionately called. For the last 13 years, we here at RIP headquarters have embraced the spookiness of the seasons’ change.

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.

The goals are simple. 

1. Have fun reading.

2. Share that fun with others.

The one thing that I love about this challenge is that you can read one book and still participate AND you can also watch movies.

I don’t have a reading list yet but for full details and to sign-up for the fun, click here.
