Readers Imbibing Peril (R.I.P.) XV #ripxv

Fall is upon us. Well, fall to me means September 1st, especially now that I'm living in the north (Michigan) where fall really shows up in all its splendor. 🍁🍂

Fall also means it's time for all the scary...and that means all the scary events, including R.I.P., back for another year. Version XV.

I'm also hosting my yearly FrightFall Readathon in September and October this year (due to the hiatus of my summer readathon, High Summer, in August because of my move). FrightFall also happens in conjunction with my annual fall event, now in it's third year, Something Wicked Fall at my horror site, Castle Macabre. We are doing a read-along of Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White. Click the links above to find out all the details.

So, what will I be reading you ask? I have quite a bit of reading lined up, but not sure if I'll get to everything. I'm still unpacking and arranging the new house. Moving seriously takes a chunk out of reading time. 😠

  • Finishing Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff (I'm also watching the excellent series on HBO).
  • In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
  • A couple of classic horror novels as of yet not decided for my True Book Talk reading group in October. Possible titles...Le Fanu's Carmilla, Lowndes' The Lodger, Benson's The Necromancers
  • The Witch of Ravensworth by George Brewer
  • The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
  • Snow by Ronald Malfi
  • Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Watching tons of horror movies, of course. We will be having two or three horror film watch-alongs during Something Wicked Fall as well.

Join us for ALL the scary!

Never miss a post!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I just finished up the first story in Lovecraft Country! Loving it. I want to finish the book before I watch the series. But looking forward to that one too! Tis the season!

  2. Thanks for the reminder - I always enjoying doing R.I.P., although I tend to stick with mysteries rather than horror. I am hoping for Carmilla, though!

    Cold Blood is truly scary - excellent writing, but bone chilling.

    I love Woman in White - enjoy!

    And, enjoy those gorgeous fall colors up North!

    Take care, stay healthy.

  3. Ohhh, I have been wanting to get to The Woman in White for a long time. Might just have to join you!
