RIP VI Challenge - Count Me In

I'm back in the game.  I found this challenge via Brenna at Literary Musings.  Thanks, Brenna! As I was just starting a little mystery the day I happened to find it I felt I had to participate.  Because Atlanta has suddenly grown cool, and the clouds have decided to creep in, I'm feeling Fall already. Oh the anticipation... I had no problem choosing four titles to fulfill this pledge.

1- The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
I actually just finished this fun little mystery.  Nice way to kick things off... now to the darker bits.
2- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
I've never read an Agatha Christie novel; can you believe it?!?!
3- The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
My most anticipated novel in the challenge.  I've been wanting to read this since I finished  The Thirteenth Tale but just couldn't find the time.  No excuses!
4- The Likeness by Tana French
I've read the other two novels in the series... yes, I read the third novel before the first and have yet to read the second!  Shame on me.  But you can actually read these in any order without screwing with the story.  
*5- Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear
 I might just try for five if I'm feeling like an overachiever.  Knowing me, I'll have loads to do before this deadline arrives and will have only just barely finished the list above, but I'm going to add this title just in case.  I've been eyeing this series for ages and finally picked up a used copy of the first book when I visited Powell's on vacation. 
Challenge lasts from September 1st to October 31st 

Who's excited with me?!  


  1. The Agatha Christies are short and sweet. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was off the hook.

  2. Yes! I'm excited you are participating! RIP is the best. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on The Woman in White. I adored The Moonstone but haven't read any other Collins since. Also, like you I haven't ever read an Agatha Christie. That should probably change.

    Also, welcome back :)

  3. I am hoping to read The Woman in White, too! Finally!

  4. I loooove your blog and am so glad to be reading it! Also glad you decided to jump in on RIP VI. I've been in on this challenge several times, and this year I'm off to my best start ever. I need to finish up The Woman in White myself.

  5. Ben, I'll have to check it out. Pretty excited about the first one.

    Brenna, Yes! The Woman in White - Oh! How I've forgotten about the classics and all the comes with reading them - falling asleep on the couch! - I'm teasing. Thanks for the welcome back!

    Kailana, I can't wait to share!

    Diane, I'm looking forward to it!! Glad to be participating.

    Andi, Thanks for stopping by! I absolutely love your blog as well! Can't wait to see your reviews throughout the challenge!
