Inspired by several bloggers I follow, I will be participating for the first time in the event R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (R.I.P. XIII Challenge), which is in its 13th year, and is hosted by Capricious Reader. The challenge starts on September 1st and will run until October 31st.
The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:
· Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, or Supernatural
The goals are simple: have fun and share the fun.
There are multiple levels of participation (Perils). I will take part in two:
Peril the Second
Read two books of any length that you believe fit within the challenge categories.
My two contenders are:
by Susanna Kearsley by Laura Purcell
Peril on the Screen
This is for those who like to watch suitably scary, eerie, mysterious Gothic fare this time of year. It may be something on the small screen or large. It may be a television show or your favorite film.
There is plenty to choose from. Let’s see what I come up with.
