R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX

The R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (RIP) reading challenge, set between September 1 and October 31, is a favorite among book bloggers. It's an easy challenge with a fab theme (especially for those of us who get spooky, foggy, or chilly autumns.)

The theme is easy. Any book in these genres:
  • Mystery.
  • Suspense.
  • Thriller.
  • Dark Fantasy.
  • Gothic.
  • Horror.
  • Supernatural.
counts, and there's an opportunity to screen a film for the challenge, too! One can commit to reading one book (or more if one loves this genre).

I'm feeling strangely bold, so I'm going for the first level of the challenge, which is to read four books.

My tentative TBR is:

Two of my TBR reads are mini-challenges within this one, which is nice -- these are shorties I think I'm likely to get in before Little Reader arrives in November!

‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ Read Along

The ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ Read Along starts in October and is hosted by by Ti (Book Chatter) and Sandy (You’ve Gotta Read This!).  I don't think I've read any Bradbury so I'm pretty excited!

RIP IX Readalong: The Haunting of Hill House

Also starting in October is the Estella Society readalong of The Haunting of Hill House. Shirley Jackson is my wife's all-time favorite writer (she researched and plotted a road trip to North Bennington, Vermont, so we could visit the sites that inspired her!), and she'll be thrilled to do this readalong with me.

Do you plan to participate in RIP IX?  If so, what do you hope to read?


  1. Everyone is reading for this challenge. I may join if I join Ti's readalong with Sandy.

  2. Yay! Such a fun time to read. I love Sept & Oct!!
