The 2020 R.I.P. XV Challenge: I Am Here for It

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:

RIP Challenge

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.

Nurse Ratched on Netflix

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!

Read-Along: Appointment in Samarra

I saw this read-along posted on Dolce Bellezza and thought, why not? It’s short and a nice departure from my current reading list. Looks like it’s a joint venture with Wuthering Expectations, a new to me blog.

Here’s a blurb from Appointment in Samarra:

One of the great novels of small-town American life, Appointment in Samarra is John O’Hara’s crowning achievement. In December 1930, just before Christmas, the Gibbsville, Pennsylvania, social circuit is electrified with parties and dances. At the center of the social elite stand Julian and Caroline English. But in one rash moment born inside a highball glass, Julian breaks with polite society and begins a rapid descent toward self-destruction.

Join us? Read and post throughout the month of September using this hashtag: #SamarraInSeptember.
