The first book I plan to read for the R.I.P. XV challenge is Heart-Shaped Box. It’s been on my list for a really long time. I’ve heard good things. I have high hopes.
Aging, self-absorbed rock star Judas Coyne has a thing for the macabre — his collection includes sketches from infamous serial killer John Wayne Gacy, a trepanned skull from the 16th century, a used hangman’s noose, Aleister Crowley’s childhood chessboard, etc. — so when his assistant tells him about a ghost for sale on an online auction site, he immediately puts in a bid and purchases it.
It’s not too late to join in. Just pick some books or movies and use the hashtags you see below when talking about them on Twitter and Instagram (#PERILREADERS, #RIPXV).
It’s almost time for the Readers Imbibing Peril Challenge (#RIPXV, #PERILREADERS) ! This year, it could not be any easier to join in. All you have to do is find some spooky reads or movies, or both, and then post about them using the hashtags above. We ALL need this to get through this year and I am so excited! Go follow @PERILREADERS on Instagram and Twitter!
Here is what I plan to read:
Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
Lisey’s Story by Stephen King
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill
I’ll also be watching Ratched when it comes out 9/18.
Will you join us? The challenge runs from September 1 – Halloween! It’s fun since there are no requirements really. Read one book or ten. Up to you!
