R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (RIP) XII

Each Fall when the air turns crisp and thoughts are turning towards Halloween, the R.I.P. Reading Event (R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril) has been hosted by Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings. He has now turned the keys to the Gothic castle over to Heather and Andi, from now on, and they hope to do him proud. 
The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:




Dark Fantasy.




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.

There are two simple goals for the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI Challenge:

1. Have fun reading.

2. Share that fun with others.

As has been the case every year, there are multiple levels of participation (Perils) that allow readers to be a part of R.I.P. XII without adding the burden of another commitment to our already busy lives. There is even a one book only option for those who feel that this sort of reading is not their cup of tea (or who have many other commitments) but want to participate all the same.

Multiple perils await. You can participate in just one, or participate in them all. Please see the link above for details on all of the possibilities. As has been my wont, I will be partaking of....

Peril the First:

Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (our very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Shirley Jackson or Tananarive Due…or anyone in between.

I'm not entirely sure what books I will read--but I'm pretty sure they will come primarily from the mystery category. I'm a weenie when it comes to most horror and thrillers.
