It’s September, which means it’s time for one of my favourite reading events of the year – R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril. R.I.P. is hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings and is now in its eleventh year!
As always, the idea of R.I.P. is to read books from one or more of the following categories during the months of September and October:
There are different levels of participation to choose from and I am signing up for Peril the First:
Read four books, of any length, from the very broad categories earlier defined as perilous. They could all be by the same author, a series of books, a random mix of classic and contemporary or whatever you like.
Here are some of the books I currently have on either my shelf or my Kindle which I could choose from for this event:
Mystery Mile by Margery Allingham
The Dead in their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley
Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz
The Moving Toyshop by Edmund Crispin
The Romance of the Forest by Ann Radcliffe
The Red House Mystery by AA Milne
Savage Magic by Lloyd Shepherd
The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters
The Plague Charmer by Karen Maitland
The Protector by SJ Deas
Blood Harvest by Sharon Bolton
The Strangler Vine by MJ Carter
Bleeding Heart Square by Andrew Taylor
A Shilling for Candles by Josephine Tey
I certainly don’t expect to read all of these, but it’s nice to have a good choice. I could also end up reading books which are not on my list, if I come across other suitable R.I.P. reads as the weeks go by!
Will you be participating this year? What will you be reading?
