R.I.P. XIII (Readers.Imbibing.Perils) Reading Challenge

I have never participated in this challenge before. But this year is the thirteenth year of R.I.P. (Readers.Imbibing.Peril), and it does make it appealing… Coincidently, I have several gothic/mystery books on my TBR, so…why not?

This challenge challenges us to read mystery, suspense, horror, thriller, dark fantasy, gothic during September and October. I am starting rather late, as I have just finished Irving Stone’s The Origin—which is great!—today, but I think I’d be able to manage four books until end of October.

My choices:
- The Turn of the Screw and the Aspern Papers by Henry James
- The Innocence of Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton
- The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
- The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury

Interesting choices, eh? Are you joining too?


  1. Enjoy! I plan to read The Mysteries of Udolpho and Northanger Abbey.

    1. Ahh.. I have been curious about Udolpho! It's in my Classic Club list. Have fun, JoAnn! :)

  2. Thanks for reminding me, I've been meaning to read Father Brown! And The Turn of the Screw... someday. :)

    1. I have just started Father Brown, and it is fun, indeed!
      The Turn of the Screw - well, the story is interesting, but the writing style... :(
