Can’t believe it’s already September!! That only means one thing…time for another R.I.P Challenge. As usual, the host is Carl V at Stainless Steel Droppings.
R.I.P stands for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, this year is the 7th year …it’s the longest challenge I have ever encountered in blogosphere.
What should we do for this challenge?
The purpose of R.I.P is to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural, Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
There are some categories available, you can check it at Stainless Steel Droppings. I am going to do 3 challenges, they are:
Peril the Second:
Read two books of any length that you believe fit within the R.I.P. categories.
I am currently reading Everything’s Eventual by the great Stephen King and will read The Wishing Game by Patrick Redmond. (Click the image to see it in goodreads)
Peril of the Short Story:
Read short stories any time during the challenge. Feel free to do this however you want, but if you review short stories on your site, please link to those reviews on the Review Site.
I still have Irish Ghost Stories Collection to read, I will read few shorts special for R.I.P
Peril on the Screen:
This is for those of us that like to watch suitably scary, eerie, mysterious gothic fare during this time of year. It may be something on the small screen or large or television show.
I know the perfect movie for this I have just watched Red Lights this afternoon, I will definitely write the review for both my Monthly Murphy and R.I.P. Will review it after I see it again for the second time this coming Friday
Maybe I will watch other movies too…I’ll decide later
Are joining the challenge too?
