R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (R.I.P.) is all about reading Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror or Supernatural books. This year there are no rules – just read the books during September and October. You can join in with others if you have Instagram or on Twitter, where you can follow the event @perilreaders and if you post, use the tag #ripxv.

Here is a list of some of the choices I have on my TBR. I shan’t read all of these but I like to think I’ll read at least one or two of them – but if other books appeal to me I could very well read them instead.

  • The Ghost of the Mary Celeste by Valerie Gordon
  • The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks
  • Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie
  • The Rottweiler by Ruth Rendell
  • The Chimney Sweeper’s Boy by Barbara Vine
  • With Our Blessing by Jo Spain
  • The Woman in Black by Susan Hill
  • The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
  • Black Water Lilies by Michel Bussi
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

  1. Those are some fine choices, Margaret! I admit I’ve not read all of them, but I think The Chimney Sweeper’s Boy has a lot to recommend it, as does The Haunting of Hill House. I’ve heard good things about Black Water Lilies, and of course, there’s the Agatha Christie…

  2. Good list! I’ve only read The Woman in Black which is very good, but there are several I would would like to try such as The Chimney Sweeper’s Boy. Can’t decide whether to do RIP myself this year. I haven’t for several years for one reason or another, will think about it.

  3. The Haunting of Hill House and The Woman in Black are the only books I’ve read from your list, but they would both be perfect choices for RIP. I’m taking part too but not sure how many books I’ll have time to read so the more relaxed rules are ideal for me this year.
