R.I.P. – R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XIV | TBR 2019

Hi, folks!

As September approaches and Summer drives to an end, it’s time for me to find consolation in one of my favourite Autumn reading events: R.I.P. Created by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings,  R.I.P. – R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril has moved to a new home, hosted by Andi from Estella’s Revenge & Heather from Capricious Reader.

The event takes place from September 1st, 2019 through October 31st, 2019, and it is now in its fourteenth year! (I feel such an old blogging soul…) 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:

Mystery // Suspense // Thriller // Gothic // Horror // Dark Fantasy // Supernatural

– or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above! 🙂

“The emphasis is never on the word challenge, instead it is about coming together as a community and embracing the autumnal mood, whether the weather is cooperative where you live or not.” Here

There are different levels of participation, and I am signing up for Peril the Secondread two books of any length that fit within the challenge categories.

Here is a list of books I may choose from:

  • Emmeline, by Charlotte Turner Smith (1788, from my Classics Club List)
  • The Castle of Wolfenbach: A German Story, by Eliza Parsons (1793)
  • The Mysteries of Udolpho, Ann Radcliffe (1794, from my Classics Club List)
  • Gothic Tales, by Elizabeth Gaskell (2000, from my Classics Club List)
  • Victorian Ghosts in the Noontide: Women Writers and the Supernatural, by Vanessa D. Dickerson (1996, nonfiction)
  • The Juniper Tree, by Barbara Comyns (1985)
  • Fell, by Jenn Ashworth (2016)
  • I, Coriander, by Sally Gardner (2005, audiobook)
  • Things We Lost in the Fire, by Mariana Enríquez (2014, tr.  Megan McDowell, from the #Best100WIT list)

That’s all for now, folks. What will you be reading? Tell me about it. 🙂

Yours truly,

J.

  1. This looks like a great community project. With #WitchWeek2019 coming, I believe I have RIP covered, but I can commit to at least 2 dark fantasies, including an oddball from a classic horror story writer.
    BTW, thanks for the follow!
