R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, VIII

August 28, 2013 RIP 7

RIP8main300It’s here, it’s here! R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, VII! hHosted by Carl over at Stainless Steel Droppings, this is an event I look forward to each year.  To me, it is R.I.P. that kicks off the fall season and all things spooktacular! For those unfamiliar with R.I.P. (gasp), here are the details:

Dark Fantasy.

Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above. That is what embodies the stories, written and visual, that we celebrate with the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril event.

There are multiple levels (or in this case, perils) to this challenge.  I plan on participating in two,  Peril the First (Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (the very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature.)


and Peril on the Screen (watch a spooky/eerie television show or movie)


What I like most about participating in R.I.P the most is that it also helps me prepare for my own celebration of all things spooky, Murder Monsters & Mayhem.  Following is just a sampling of the books I hope to read as part of R.I.P in preparation for Murder, Monsters & Mayhem:

For the Peril of the Screen portion of the challenge, I have a few movies/shows in mind:

My Amityville Horror

There you have it! Anyone else participating in R.I.P? What are you reading? Any suggestions as to what I should read?

    The Abominable!! Dan Simmons! Thanks for the reminder of this book. I’ve just joined the library hold queue for it – 6 copies on order, 4 holds already!

    I just love the cover for that Mira Grant book. I enjoy her on the SF Squeecast podcast and really should read some of her fiction one of these days.

    Thanks for joining in again this year, and thanks for hosting M3 again as well. Another chill-inducing banner that makes me ache for October, and October weather.

      The image in my banner comes from the “Exorcist stairs” in Georgetown. Truly terrifying (even in the daylight)!
