Readers Imbibing Peril: R.I.P X
It's R.I.P. - Readers Imbibing Peril - time again! For this tenth edition, Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings has passed the hosting torch to the ladies of The Estella Society.
This event, which runs through Halloween, encourages us to read...
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
There are just two simple rules:
1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.
One again, there are many levels of participation - just pick the "peril" that's right for you. I've chosen "Peril the Second" and will read two books that fit the RIP theme. I may pull out my Virago Book of Ghost Stories and tackle the "Peril of the Short Story", too.
Complete details can be found over at The Estella Society.
My list of reading possibilities:
The House at Riverton by Kate Morton
I'd Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman
Baltimore Blues by Laura Lippman (but do I really need another series?)
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Lady Audley's Secret by M.E. Braddon
Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith
Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers
The Black Tulip by Alexandre Dumas
My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier
Armadale or No Name by Wilkie Collins
Have you read any of these books?
Are you participating in R.I.P. X?
