It’s here! Carl posted the sign-up post for R.I.P a few days ago. It’s one of the few events to get the blogisphere in a blogging frenzy. The R.I.P. Challenge is one of my favorite challenges. Even though the sun is shining out here in SoCal and the weather is still in the 90s, I had to sign up now.
From now until Halloween, participants will be reading books and watching movies in a variety of genres:
The only two rules:
Have fun reading (and watching).
Share that fun with others.
For Peril the First, participants read four books that fit in with the challenge. I’ve ignored my own books most of this year in favor of library books and advanced reading copies, so for R.I.P., I’m reading strictly from my shelves. My reading pool:
Half World by Hiromi Goto
anything by Angela Carter
The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry
Stepmother by Robert Coover
Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan
Just What Kind of Mother Are You? by Paula Daly
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
The Jinni and the Golem by Helene Wecker
What are you reading (and watching) for R.I.P. VIII?
