Ever since I was a child I have been reading books from the supernatural, crime and mystery genres. TV shows featuring similar themes have also been a favourite of mine. My mother is mostly to ‘blame’ for all of this. Her love for horror and mystery exposed me to these genres as a very young child. Can you imagine a child under ten watching the remake of Night of the Living Dead without being scared? So, the R. I. P. Challenge is really perfect for me.
Carl V is hosting the R. I. P. (R. eaders I. mbibing P. eril VI) Challenge in Stainless Steel Droppings. I found out about this challenge from a fellow blogger and thought why not participate in this?
The R.I.P. Challenge has taken place every year from September 1st through October 31st for the last 5 years.
The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:
There are several challenge levels at which participants can join in. I have chosen,
Peril the First:
Read four books, any length, that you feel fit the very broad definitions of R.I.P. literature. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ian Fleming or Edgar Allan Poe…or anyone in between.
As always I have no pre-selected list of books. Like in all of my other reading challenges and indeed in my general reading habit, I am going to go with the flow and see where that takes me.
That’s all for now. I hope to enjoy this challenge and finish it in time!
Completed Books: 1. By The Pricking of My Thumbs. Agatha Christie.
