It’s that time of year again! R.I.P. (Readers Imbibing Peril) is a two-month extravaganza of “all things ghostly and ghastly” according to its host, Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings. I participated in R.I.P. for the first time last year and it wasn’t a great success for me, but I’m hoping to do better this time (no stinkers, please!) so during the month of September and October I’ll be reading books that can be classified as:
You can choose different levels of participation during R.I.P. season, and I’ve decided to go for…
in which I’ll read four books of any length that I feel fit the R.I.P. definition of literature. Just looking at my TBR list, I’ve identified some possible candidates:
Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll – “A ghostly tale about love, loss and forgiveness with an instant classic feel” (from the publisher)
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins – “Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and the madhouse, The Woman in White is the first and most influential of the Victorian genre that combined Gothic horror with psychological realism.” (from Goodreads)
The Twelve by Justin Cronin – “A heart-stopping thriller rendered with masterful literary skill, The Twelve is a grand and gripping tale of sacrifice and survival.” (from the publisher)
The Seduction of Water by Carol Goodman – A novel of suspense centered around a woman’s search for the truth about her mother’s life and mysterious death.
I hope to see some of you around during R.I.P. season and look forward to sharing the chills and thrills!
