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.

What will you be reading?

Today is the Day – #sleepingbeautiesRAL

The Sleeping Beauties Read Along button.

Sleeping Beauties comes out today and in turn, the read along begins. Very few have signed up which makes this King fan a little sad but I must soldier on. There are a few reading along who did not officially sign up and that’s okay too. I basically just wanted people to read with.

I hope to pick-up my book tonight. I can never do these things on a Kindle.
