Each year when Carl begins RIP my mind jumps back to the first time I joined in. Not knowing what to read because my mind said things I just was not into reading I found a little book who’s main characters were a vampire and a werewolf. With a deep breath and a *here I go* I read Gil’s All Fright Diner and found it delightful!… so no I cannot enter RIP without the thought of that book coming to mind.
Beginning today Carl is Hosting yet another new RIP for all to find those new spooky, or gothic, or murder books.
His goals are simple:
1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.
The purpose of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII is to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as:
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
So choose a Peril and jump right in to all the fun!
I have decided to do Peril the Second which is to read 2 RIP type books. (we all know this is because I don’t do commitment well. I will read more then 2)
Anyway….Carl like to see pools of books, so here’s my pool!………..
Books on my TBR shelves that fit the bill are:
2. 20th Century Ghosts,
3. Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil,
4. Pickwick Papers
5. Bleak House
6. Oliver Twist
8. The Terror……………
9. Nine Coaches Waiting,
10. Irish Ghosts and Hauntings
11. The Haunted Hotel & Other Stories
15. What the Dead Know
16. The Anatomy of Ghosts
17. City of Nets
18. The Night Watch
19. The Name of the Rose
20. An Unpardonable Crime
And if that isn’t enough to choose from…. there’s always my 2 favorite reads at RIP time, The Thirteenth Tale and Drood!
Of course just because there’s there’s a pool doesn’t mean I”ll be swimming in it! In fact, it’s generally more possible that I find new ones along the way!
RIP is the best way to *fall* into the new season….
Let the ghostly, ghastly , ghoulish reading begin!!!! I think I will head for my dungeon and find a good book………………………………………
