R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII

I’ve decided to join the fracas over at Stainless Steel Droppings, where some of the best fracases have been. This particular one will involve the spooky, the mysterious, and the frightening for the next two months (through Halloween). I’ll let Stainless Steel Droppings fill you in on the details (and remember to stop by over there if you want to play too):

The purpose of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII is to enjoy books and movies/television that could be classified (by you) as:

Dark Fantasy.
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.

My goal will be to read 2 scary RIP selections over the next two months and to also join in the two read-alongs that will be happening.

The Estella Society will be hosting the read-along of Sarah Waters’ The Little Stranger from September 1-17.

Stainless Steel Droppings will be hosting the read-along of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book starting October 1st.

If you want to join in any or all of this, it is not too late to check out Stainless Steel Droppings and The Estella Society. Enjoy!

  1. So am I to infer that your two books will be our two readalongs? I do hope so. I started reading The Little Stranger over the past weekend and I’m really liking it so far. It has a nice slow build up that has me itching to get back to it each time I’m forced to put it down. And I love The Graveyard Book dearly and look forward to discussing it with a group of people.

    Thanks so much for joining in on the general mayhem that is R.I.P. Such a great time of year to read and talk about good books.

    1. Hi Carl, thanks for stopping by. I intend to read two selections plus the readalongs. I just got my hands on The Little Stranger yesterday from the library and it has definitely sucked me in.

      I also plan to join you in October for The Graveyard Book which is one of my favorite Neil Gaiman books, hands down.

      Thanks for hosting such a wonderful reading event. I like how folks can pick and choose how much to be involved. As it is growing/harvesting season on the farm, I am not reading as much as I will be once winter sets in.

      1. I can only imagine how busy you are. I worked on a melon farm as a kid and September and October meant working the pumpkin patches. It was always my favorite time of year for that work after the long, hot summers.

Comments are always appreciated, so don't be shy!
