Readers Imbibing Peril Challenge


R.I.P is a reading event right up my alley. The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:

Dark Fantasy.
Back when I blogged much more regularly (before children) I participated yearly. Finally, I am able to join in the macabre fun once again.

Putting together my list of possible reads for R.I.P is actually almost as fun as actually doing to reading. Expect this list to change as I go!

  1. Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer
  2. A Gathering of Shadows and A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
  3. The Alienist by Caleb Carr
  4. Sympathy for the Devil by Tim Pratt
  5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (reread)
  6. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
  7. The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
  8. A Study in Scarlet Women Tby Sherry Thomas
  9. A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas
  10. The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas

There are a few levels of participation to choose from and there are also a few side challenges to participate in. I plan on participating in Peril the First which requires you to read four books and Peril on the Screen which involves watching a film or tv series meeting the mysterious criteria. My current possibilities are:

  1. Last Year at Marienbad
  2. Pan’s Labyrinth
  3. Twin Peaks

I’m really looking forward to immersing myself in the eery.
