Readers Imbibing Peril


Hermine, destructive though she was, brought delightful, cool weather this Labor Day weekend, and though I know the temperatures are going to skyrocket back into the 90s later this week, I’m enjoying this preview of fall. With the arrival of cooler temperatures, fresh school supplies, and colorful leaves, is simply the best time of year for reading, too: Readers Imbibing Peril.

Readers Imbibing Peril is hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings and it’s always a delight. Get out your mystery, suspense, thrillers, horror, gothic, and dark fantasy novels. Join us.

Last year, my blog was dormant during RIP X, I did manage to read The Cutting Season by Attica Locke, which was a great thriller if you’re still looking to round out your list.

This year, I’m trying hard to not buy anymore books (I should admit, this is because I bought about 40 at a recent book fair) and I’d really like to read through some of the books that I did buy. And for someone who loves RIP-type books, I really don’t seem to buy that many. My list is small, but that’s probably for the best.


Salem’s Lot by Stephen King
The Dark Tower by Stephen King
The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango
What You See in the Dark by Manuel Muñoz
Ghostly by Audrey Niffenegger

Happy reading!

  1. Oooh, I read The Cutting Season for RIP two years ago (or three?), and I thought it was so wonderful! I can’t even quite pin down exactly why I love it so much, but it is definitely one of my all-time favorites. Have fun will all your RIP reads! 👻 And can I just say how very happy it makes me to see you blogging again!!!!


  2. My blog was kind of dormant during this period last year as well, and I was so grateful to Heather and Andi for hosting for me.

    I’m glad you are joining in this year. Loved looking over your list, particularly as the Niffengger edited collection of ghost stories is one I didn’t know existed and now I desperately want to pick up.

    I see a trip to the bookstore in my immediate future!
