It's that time again! September 1st and time for the Ninth RIP (Readers Imbibing Peril) Challenge! Fall doesn't really start until RIP appears; and although it is humid, windy and warm today, I'm sure that before long the oven will be used again, sweaters will be dug out of summer storage and I'll return to my hot chocolate addiction that takes over in the cooler months :) But to kick off any season, the most important thing is to read some appropriate literature, of course...
Ably hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings, this challenge is all about throwing yourself into
- Dark Fantasy.
- Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
I've always loved this challenge -- it's such fun to read creepy tales and share them at this time of year. This year I'm choosing to do Peril the Second: read two books that fit this criteria between Sept 1 and Oct 31. I'm hoping I'll get to read at least four titles to make it to Peril the First, but not sure I will able to, so for now I am committing to two! Here are two suitable titles that I plan to read, both from my Century of Books challenge list:
My Cousin Rachel by Daphne DuMaurier
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
Hope you will also think about reading along!
