I’m pretty late to the party, but autumn is FINALLY on the horizon, which means it’s time for the annual R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril challenge at Stainless Steel Droppings! The challenge simply asks participants to read at least one book that fits within one or more of the following genres:
- Dark Fantasy
The challenge has several tiers depending on how much you feel like reading, and there are also options to watch movies or play games (video or tabletop) that fit into the challenge genres! Personally, I’m going to tackle Peril the First and attempt to read four books.
I’ve already read one mystery in September, The Darkness Knows by Cheryl Honigford (review to come). Other potential reads include Nevernight by Jay Kristoff, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. I may also attempt Peril on the Screen by finally checking out “Stranger Things”!
Are you participating in this challenge? If so, what are you planning to read? If not, what kinds of books and movies get you in the mood for Halloween?
