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.
