It's R.I.P. time again! From now through the end of October, Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings encourages us to read...
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.
There are just two simple rules:Carl offers many levels of participation - just pick the "peril" that's right for you.
1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.
I've chosen Peril the Second: read two books of any length that you believe fit within the R.I.P. categories.
The possibilities include:
Lady Audley's Secret by M.E. Braddon - ready to go on my kindle
Wilkie Collins - possibly The Haunted Hotel or The Dead Secret
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Dracula by Bram Stoker - perhaps a read/listen combination?
The Ivy Tree by Mary Stewart - for Anbolyn's Mary Stewart Reading Week September 15-22. This quiz helped me select the perfect title.
The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer - because I've been meaning to reader Heyer and this one is Lisa's favorite.
The Likeness by Tana French - I enjoyed Into the Woods on audio earlier this year.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson - because I don't want to be the last person on earth to read it!
Laura Lippmann - Her stand-alones are great, but maybe I should start at the beginning with the Tess Monaghan series.
Birds of a Feather by Jacqueline Winspear - it's high time I returned to the Maisie Dobbs series!
Night Film by Marisha Pessl - Ti's review convinced me, but it's doubtful I'll reach the top of the library hold list in the next two months.
Let the Perils Begin!!
