It officially started yesterday, September 1st, but things have been so crazy busy since the Fall semester started that I feel like I’m I always running just a little bit behind and forgetting to do things. The challenge is for two months (ending on Halloween), and this is the time of year when I love to read Horror and Gothic literature, and there is a reading “Peril” for everyone. Perhaps it will help me feel a bit more grounded and get me into the spirit of Autumn.
I will be doing Peril the First: Read four books, any length, which fit the definition of RIP literature.
I don’t know what other books I’ll be reading, but the 1st one will be Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. I’ve been itching to re-read the series for years, and now I’m finally going to do it. I also want to read some Classic Horror like Edgar Allen Poe or H.P. Lovecraft, but I’m not going to lock myself down to anything specific right now.
I may also participate in the group read of The Quick by Lauren Owen, but I haven’t decided yet since it overlaps with my read-along of The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan.
Are you participating in RIP X? Are you reading any Horror or Gothic titles that you think I should add to my TBR? Let me know in the comments!
