It’s Here! R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI!

August 31, 2011 RIP 11

Anyone that knows anything about me knows I love the thriller & horror genres. An event that allows me to celebrate this is R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, hosted by the awesome Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings.  Here’s a bit of info about RIP VI:

The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.

The official dates for R.I.P are September 1-October 31st. It just so happens that I’ll be hosting Murders, Monsters & Mayhem  (Mx3) in October, so R.I.P. just gives me an excuse to start celebrating early!

Here is just a taste of the books I plan on reading:

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian
Black Light by Patrick Melton, Marcus Dunstan and Stephen Romano
The Monster’s Corner: Stories Through Inhuman Eyes
Dead Man Walking by Stefan Petrucha

And many, many more!

    I’m very close to joining the RIP challenge for the first time, but I feel like I need you to look at my TBR shelf and say, “Yes, read THIS one!” :) Need to wander up and take a look…

    Enjoy your challenge! I’m finally playing along this year and I’m pretty pumped about it.

    Great to have you joining in again, and thrilled that it coincides with the event you are hosting in October. I can’t wait to participate in it. I wish I could take the whole month of October off just to revel in gothic goodness.

    I sound a bit like a broken record, but A Monster Calls was really good! I was surprised by how much I liked that book.

    Did you get your hands on an ARC of The Night Strangers? If so, I’m jealous! I love Mr. Bohjalian’s novels.

    I might have to read A Monster Calls during the challenge too even though it’s not on my list. And I’ll definitely check out your October event too!
