IT'S HERE AGAIN! R.I.P. CHALLENGE V!
I have been waiting for this! I was just thinking the other day, "I wonder when Carl (Stainless Steel Droppings) will be announcing his R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge?" Well, it's here and it starts today! I know I have a challenge blog, but I've decided to cross post this because this challenge is just SO awesome!
Here are the details according to Carl:
Though the weather outside ain’t frightful, this type of reading makes September and October delightful. I know that as I have gathered together books for this, the fifth annual R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge, I have felt that chill up my spine and an anticipation that was hard to put on hold until now.
There are two simple goals for the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril V Challenge:
1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.
As I do each and every year, there are multiple levels of participation that allow you to be a part of R.I.P. V without adding the burden of another commitment to your already busy lives. There is even a one book only option for those who feel that this sort of reading is not their cup of tea but want to participate all the same.
R.I.P. V officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.
Multiple perils await you. You can participate in just one, or participate in them all.
Here is my list of potential R.I.P. V reads: (Revised)
1. Vampire Academy--Richelle Mead (actually starting today for a book club)
2. Dracula in Love--Karen Essex
3. The Wedding Gift--Kathleen McKenna
4. Dante's Journey--JC Marino
5. The Lucifer Code--Charles Brokaw
6. Family Business--Brett Williams
7. The Haunting of Hill House--Shirley Jackson
For the short story peril:
Echoes from the Macabre--Daphne Du Maurier
Movies will be whatever strikes my fancy at the time!
This challenge can overlap with other challenges. Also, there will be themed posts and giveaways throughout the challenge.
