It is the tenth anniversary of the always anticipated Reader’s Imbibing Peril (RIP)!!

“Ten years ago, when reading challenges were all the rage, I started my very first one.  I did not see a lot of events centered around the gothic and classic horror that I loved to imbibe in when Summer turns to Autumn, and so R.I.P. was born.  Though this kind of literature isn’t my first love, this event is the one I cherish the most of all that I have hosted on Stainless Steel Droppings.  It was my first, and I look most forward to it every year.”–Carl V. (The Estella Society announcement post)

It also happens to be a year where Carl V. of Stainless Steel Droppings is handing Andi & Heather at the reins to The Estella Society, and instead of host, will act as participant; “I had some commitments that I knew were going to make hosting a challenge.”

I am hoping to actually participate this year as well.

The event runs: September 1st to October 31st.

The reads span these descriptions: Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. Dark Fantasy. Gothic. Horror. Supernatural.

The rules are simple:

1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.

There are multiple Perils… see The Estella’s Revenge event page for Perils and images. A Group-Read is being hosted, so check that out as well.

I’m not sure which Peril I will do. I do hope to read Frances Hardinge’s Cuckoo Song, and reread Holly Grant’s The League of Beastly Dreadfuls. Goodness knows I will be reading plenty of seasonal Picture Books…  I will try to update this page with a list (& links).

For good reading/viewing ideas, the Review page and looking at others’ “to-read” lists are helpful (see Event page).

thoughts? would love to hear them...
