RIP X Challenge: The List


Fall is around the corner. Pumpkin spice is about to be added to every known culinary dish. AND the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril X Challenge is kicking off!! Did I mention it's my absolute favorite reading event?!? The fact that The Estella Society is hosting this year is also pretty freaking awesome. You go ladies! And of course, we can't mention the event without a very BIG thanks to Carl V. Anderson of Stainless Steel Droppings who created it ten years ago. 

The Deal:

Read novels that fit any of the following genres from Sept 1st to October 31st:


Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.

Without further ado, here's my RIP X Challenge pledge (I'm going all in):

(read ANY four books that fit the RIP genre outline above)

&

(celebrate and read short stories)

The Books:










*Note: My husband is participating this year and has chosen Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for Peril the Third. Yay, Justin!!

I have about three or four more on my Kindle that I haven't added here, but they'll probably be read while I'm touring Iceland later this month!! Can't think of a better place for a brooding atmosphere.


What are you guys reading this year?!?

  1. I can't believe it's nearly that time of year again. I like to keep my horror for the summer months as I'm a big wuss.

    1. Right?! We had such a short summer here that it doesn't seem possible. That being said, I'm not complaining because I love fall!!

  2. You really are going all in! I love how you are combining classics and newer books. I always forget that there are creepy classics!

    1. Ha! I know, right?? I actually forgot that I have one other classic title I forgot to add. And there are so many creepy classics.. I think my lists from years past had many more of those than contemporary works.

  3. I still need to sign up for this. I can't wait! I love RIP!! You've chosen some great books for it. Wuthering Heights is such a terrific read. I enjoyed the In A Dark, Dark Wood. And Jekyll/Hyde is fantastic! Have fun in Iceland and enjoy your creepy reads :)

    1. Yes, do it!!!! Elena from Book and Reviews said A Dark, Dark Wood was really good so I'm excited. Glad to see you did as well. And I've attempted Wuthering Heights before but had to put aside due to a crazy schedule. I'm sure I'll appreciate it a lot more now anyway. Can't wait to share AND see your list!
