The long-awaited R.I.P. VIII reading event is here!
R.I.P. is a bookish event that happens every year from September 1 through October 31. To get into the spirit of fall, readers choose books that fit into one (or more) of the following genres:
- Dark Fantasy.
- Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
One of the great things about R.I.P. is that you can pick your degree of difficulty. There are multiple levels for the challenge — including an option to read only one book that fits the criteria — and you can also choose to watch movies or read short stories within the above genres.
As you can see, I’ve chosen Peril the First, which requires me to read at least 4 books that qualify for the challenge. I am planning to read: (1) The Club of Angels by Luis Fernando Verissimo; (2) Chimes at Midnight by Seanan McGuire; (3) A Whiff of Death by Isaac Asimov; (4) Royal Blood by Rhys Bowen; (5) The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater; (6) Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury; (7) The Roman Hat Mystery by Ellery Queen; (8) Million Dollar Baby by Amy Patricia Meade; and (9) Shadows by Robin McKinley.
