It’s hard to believe, but this year marks the 10-year anniversary of Carl’s R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril challenge! This year, it’s being hosted by The Estella Society, but it’s still the same gothic, spooky, autumnal reading event we know and love! The idea behind this event is to read at least one book that fits within the following genres between September 1 and October 31:
- Dark fantasy.
- Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
I’m not a big horror reader, so I’m planning to focus on mysteries and dark fantasy for my R.I.P. reading. Possible books include A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn, A Red-Rose Chain by Seanan McGuire, Unnatural Death by Dorothy L. Sayers, and Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. What are you going to read for R.I.P. X? Any great, atmospheric (but not too scary!) reads that I should try?
