R.I.P. VI is here!
7 September, 2011
I was just feeling all gloomy last week thinking about how summer’s over and dreading the encroaching darkness and chill until I realised that Carl V of Stainless Steel Droppings will be hosting his Readers Imbibing Peril (R.I.P.) VI challenge from Sept 1st – Oct 31st. It’s in its 6th year and is one of the first challenges I joined when I started blogging and one I always look forward to every year. Takes the edge off the approaching winter.
I’ll be participating at the Peril the First level where I plan to read 4 books or more in the following genres: mystery, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic, horror, supernatural. All genres I love!
So I’m hoping to read some books from the following on my TBR and maybe some new titles I may come across in the next two months:
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson – I’ve heard this is super creepy, a favourite amongst bloggers
Dark Matter by Juli Zeh – existential/philosophical thriller with physicists, my choice this month for my book group
Dark Matter: A Ghost Story by Michelle Paver – I’ve heard this is uber creepy
Twelve by Jasper Kent – vampires in 1800s Russia
Ghost Stories by M.R. James – I keep putting this on my RIP lists but never managed to read it, oops
Heartstone by C.J. Sansom – ‘cos I love Shardlake
The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams – some gothic fun and ‘cos I’ve had this, like, FOREVER
Mystery in the Minster by Susanna Gregory – Physician Matthew Bartholomew sleuths in 14th century Cambridge on his 17th case
Still Life by Louise Penny – Inspector Gamache’s first case in Quebec
It’s all about having fun and I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else will be reading. And once again, how gorgeous is the banner? And will you be joining us?
