R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XI

It’s time for the annual R. (eaders) I. (mbibing) P. (eril) event, hosted by Carl  at Stainless Steel Droppings, taking place between September 1st and October 31st.
(Much thanks to Hugo Award winning artist Abigail Larson for the use of her art)

This event involves reading books from these categories: Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural or other closely-related fields. Reviews, while not required, may be posted on Carl’s blog.

I shall be attempting:


Peril the First: Read at least four books, any length, that you feel fit (the very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. I have plenty of Mystery, Suspense, Thriller and Gothic books on my shelves and Kindle to choose from, including these four:

The Girl in a Swing by Richard Adams

The Taxidermist’s Daughter by Kate Mosse

The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo

  1. Nice choices there, Margaret. Although if you’re anything like me you pick books out and then read something else entirely. LOL! Good luck.


    1. Cath, I wasn’t going to pick books out in advance because usually I end up reading other books too. 🙂 At the moment I fancy reading these four, and have started The Girl in a Swing. I’m currently reading The Girl on The Train, which I’ve realised fits the categories too – off to a good start!


  2. Oh, you’ve got some excellent choices, Margaret! And what an interesting variety, too. I’ll be keen to know what you think of them.


  3. Looks like a good plan, Margaret. And, like Cath, picking books and actually ending up reading them seems to a skill I don’t possess! LOL
