R.I.P - Count me in!

 Every year at this time, I think about joining the R.I.P. challenge, hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings -


Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.
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.


This year, I'm not thinking about it - I'm doing it! Mostly because I already had this stack of books sitting at my house waiting to be read - but also because I'm really enjoying reading with others this year.



 As part of this year's R.I.P, I will be joining the read-a-long of The Historian hosted by The Estella Society - I've had this one at my house long enough.It's time to read the darn thing!


I am going to try to join at the Peril the First level - read 4 books, any length, that fit the definitions of R.I.P. literature.


Here are a few choices currently on my shelves -


After that - who knows? I might be hooked!

It's my first year R.I.P.-ing, so I'm asking you, veterans- what should I read first??

Yay for jumping in! I'm glad you stopped "thinking" and decided to join--this is always a fun challenge.

Best challenge ever (as you may have heard me say once or twice) ...

I'll be rereading both The Historian and The Thirteenth Tale. I can't wait to get into them! (I'm currently stuck in Victorian ghost stories and they are very slow going.)
