Once again it’s time for R.I.P. !! Every year at this time I thank Carl for hosting RIP and for convincing me to join in many years ago!
(Never read Gothic or Victorian before RIP.
Never read Murder and Mayhem before RIP.
Never read anything but Fantasy!.. wow.. look at me now!)
So.. it’s all Carl’s fault that I now have over 130 books in my TBR pile!!
But back to RIP In Carl’s own words:
September 1st is right around the corner. It is time to begin.
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above. That is what embodies the stories, written and visual, that we celebrate with the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril event.
As time has wound on I’ve honed this event down to two simple rules:
1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.
So.. are you ready??……….
I always just choose to commit to one book.
(That way there’s no real pressure and I always read quite a bit more before RIP is over.)
Carl enjoys reading our lists and so I am happy to provide some of the books that I will be choosing from:
I have Agatha Christie’s Murder Manor, and Alex Grecian’s Black Country. I also have Seth Linder’s Ripper Diary and James Herbert’s Others. Then there’s S.J. Watson’s Before I go to Sleep and Diane Setterfield’s Bellman and Black.
Also in the pile is Peter May’s Blackhouse, David Bell’s Hiding Place & Cemetery Girl. Plus Rachel Hore’s A Place of Secrets and an older book by Sidney Kirkpatrick called A Cast of Killers.
Last of the books that I took photo’s of are: Ian McEwan’s Atonement, Daphnie du Mauier’s Echo’s from the Macabre, Joe Hill’s 20th Century Ghosts, Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose and lastly Patricia Cornwell’s Book of the Dead.
Anyone want to guess which book I will read first??…………….
I hope everyone joins in and reads lots of great books!
Happy RIP everyone!
