Even though it will be summer for at least another month here, I’m SO ready for fall — that hint of chill in the air, the smell of the leaves, the jackets and scarves and cozy evenings curled up in blankets. And to get into the autumnal spirit, I’m signing up for RIP 13!
The “rule” is to read at least one book, between September 1 and October 31, that fits into at least one of the following genres: mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic, horror, and supernatural. But the true goal is to have fun reading and share that fun with others!
With that in mind, here are some books I might read in the next two months that would qualify:
- Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik (dark fantasy)
- Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz (mystery)
- The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler (mystery)
If you’re also doing this challenge, what are you planning to read? What are some of your favorite books from these genres? Or if dark and spooky reads aren’t your jam, what books get you in the mood for fall?

I’m seeing so many brilliant posts for this challenge that I think I’m going to take part! Now to choose some dark books!
Yes, please join us! 🙂
I’m looking forward to reading Novik’s new book! Enjoy your RIP reading! I’ll be signing up too.
I’m so excited for Spinning Silver, but also nervous because I loved Uprooted so much!
