R.I.P. X Wrap-up

I’ve fallen so far behind on blogging (11 reviews behind, you guys!) that I forgot to do my wrap-up post for R.I.P. X! But better late than never, right? I ended up reading four books that fit within the challenge guidelines, thus completing Peril the First. Here’s what I read:

  1. Dorothy L. Sayers, Unnatural Death
  2. Deanna Raybourn, A Curious Beginning
  3. Rainbow Rowell, Carry On
  4. Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

I liked all the books, more or less, although A Curious Beginning was probably my least favorite (the heroine was far too modern). Six of Crows was my favorite for sheer entertainment value, and I also liked Carry On more than I was expecting to. Yet another fun year for this challenge, and I’m sure I’ll be participating again next year!

      I was definitely conflicted about whether or not to include Carry On. It’s not really *dark* fantasy…since it’s a Rainbow Rowell book, it’s mostly about the romance. But one of the main characters is a vampire, and there are some monsters and evil magicians running around, so I decided to count it.
