Joining the R. I. P. VIII Event


I’m joining R. I. P. VIII! That stands for Readers Imbibing Peril. It’s hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings. I joined in last year and it was great fun!

The challenge runs for the next two months, between September 1st and October 31st. Participants should read novels (or watch movies) in the following categories:

Dark Fantasy.

As I’m a fast reader, and I have enough reading material left on the shelves to fulfil the criteria, I will go for the highest level, which is that of Peril the First.

Peril the First

For the Peril the First level, you’re required to read four books that fit the definition of scary. I’m going to read the following (subject to change):

The Devil in Silver by Victor LaValleThe Donor by Helen FitzgeraldCartwheel by Jennifer DuboisSorry by Zoran Drvenkar

I’m really looking forward to reading these. But I’m also taking part in a challenge on Shelfari, so if it suits me better, I may swap a book or two.

Over 140 people have signed up for this challenge so far. How about you? You can read 1, 2 or 4 books, or watch one or more scary movies. Isn’t it nice to be scared sometimes?

Finished: 1/4

    Love this event! I’m doing Peril the First too. I’m not familiar with your scary book choices but that’s one of the best things about this, I find new titles in a favorite genre.

  3. Good luck looks like a fun event.
