Autumn is slowly approaching and Carl’s eagerly awaited R.I.P. VI has finally started. Of course I’m joining. Here is what Carl wrote in his post.
Every September 1st through October 31st for the last 5 years I have hosted the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge, affectionately known as the R.I.P. Challenge. I began this reader event, I blinked, and now I am hosting this for the 6th time. Wow, that is so hard to believe.
The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:
The emphasis is never on the word challenge, instead it is about coming together as a community and embracing the autumnal mood, whether the weather is cooperative where you live or not.
I am going to aim high this year and want to read 4 books, watch a movie and join the group read for Deborah Lawrenson’s The Lantern.
I am not sure what I am going to read but here are a few ideas:
Daphne Du Maurier’s The House on the Strand
Alice Thomas Ellis The Inn at the Edge of the World
John Harwood’s The Ghost Writer
Jennifer Archer’s Through Her Eyes
Victoria Schwab’s The Near Witch
Stephen King’s Full Dark, No Stars
Neil Gaiman’s Coraline
I wanted to re-watch Interview with the Vampire and the one or the other Vincent Price movie like Dragonwyck or House on Haunted Hill.
As written before, I will join the group read for Deborah Lawrenson’s The Lantern but there are two other possibilities if you’d like to participate.
If you want to join or know more about the details of the event here’s the link to Carl’s post.
