Readers Imbibing Peril is always a fun autumn event in the book blogging world. I haven't participated in the past few years, but I couldn't resist joining in this year. (Although I probably won't post most of my R.I.P. reviews until October.) The purpose of the challenge is to have fun reading and sharing books that could be classified as Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, and Supernatural. Shouldn't be too hard for me considering that's what I like to read most of the time anyway.
In Peril the First, which is the level I'll probably shoot for, you just have to read any four books that you feel fit the above categories. If you only want to read two books this year, then Peril the Second is the category for you. And if you only want to read one, then 'sign up' for Peril the Third. There are also categories for short stories and movies. There's no pressure and no stress. It's just for fun. It runs from Sept. 1st to Oct. 31st.
Here are some of the books I'm planning on reading in October that I think would fit this reading challenge perfectly:
