I found the RIP (Readers Imbibing Peril) XII challenge over at Capricious Reader’s blog. It’s a reading challenge that’s been running for eleven years, and this year it’s hosted by Capricious Reader (above) and Estella’s Revenge. You can visit these links to sign up to the challenge by adding your blog address to the list of participants.
The idea is to read stories of suspense, mystery and horror through the months of September and October. There are various levels of participation that you can sign up for, but I think I’ll be doing Peril the First: four books that fit the above descriptors. Any posts I make about scary stories that I read in September or October will be linked to the challenge. The challenge also extends to short stories that fit the bill, as well as any films or TV shows you might watch that include themes of horror, dark fantasy, suspense and the gothic.
If you’re taking part in RIP XII, let me know in the comments!
