I love fall. I love Halloween. And I love the spooky, creepy, strange, macabre, so R.I.P is my kind of fun. The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:
This year, I said I would read four books for the event, but I actually managed to squeak a few more in:
- Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer
- A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
- A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
- The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
- A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas
- A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas
- The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas
I also said I would watch a movie to fit the challenge, but unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to watch a single movie this month! To be honest, tv shows are more my thing these days since I have such small chunks of free time.
I will say though that I hope to watch Last Year at Marienbad soon. I’ve seen it at least twice before and I teach it in Intro to Film, but I could do with a re-viewing.
