R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI Challenge
The ber- months have begun as we say in the Philippines, which means we're getting slightly cooler weather, and we're gearing up for Halloween and then Christmas. It's getting cozy enough to take part in some reading challenges. I thought it would be the perfect time to join the R.I.P. VI challenge. In my almost two years of blogging, I've never taken part but I'm definitely in the mood right now for reading more mystery, gothic, suspense and yes, even horror novels just to get into a Halloweenish mood. R.I.P. VI officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.
I'm not sure how many books I'll be reading for the challenge but I'm going to try to complete the Peril the First level which means completing four or more books of any length, that you feel fit R.I.P. literature. Right now I've started reading Florence and Giles by John Harding and so far it's riveting.
Here are some other ideas I have. Have you read any of these? Are they any good?
Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link
The Anatomy of Ghosts by Andrew Taylor
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Damned by Chuck Palahniuk
Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist
The Observations by Jane Harris
The Wasp Factory by Ian Banks
Are you also taking part in the challenge? If you have other recommendations for novels in the mystery, suspense, gothic, supernatural, thriller, dark fantasy and horror genre then I'd love to hear what they are so please leave a comment below. Thanks!
