R.I.P. Challenge

I found this challenge over at Adventures in Borkdom. It is a yearly challenge hosted at Stainless Steel Droppings. The purpose of the R.I.P (R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril) Challenge is to read and enjoy books that could be classified as: Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural. R.I.P. VI officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.

I am officially signing up for Peril the First, which means reading four books of R.I.P. literature. And since I started reading Frankenstein today, that can be my first read. Though I might add a few Perils of the Short Story and Perils on the Screen!!

Update: I started the challenge by reading Carrie by Stephen King. I'll link the reviews here as and when I post them!

Peril the First:

1. Carrie by Stephen King

2. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

3. The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John Le Carre

4. Ghost Story by Peter Straub

Peril on the Screen:

1. The Nightmare Before Christmas

2. Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Peril of the Short Story:

1. Metzengerstein by Edgar Allan Poe

2. The Lame Priest by S. Carleton

I'm so glad you are joining in this challenge as well, and thanks for the link to my blog. I almost dropped my coffee when I saw my blog mentioned on my google reader via your post!

So I can't wait to see what you'll be reading--I'm definitely getting some Stephen King and Shirley Jackson in for this challenge.

Frankenstein is a fantastic way to kick off the RIP season! Love that book, Dracula too.

Borkadventures.Com - Oh, I was actually going to comment on your blog about the link, but I guess it slipped my mind. I hope you didn't mind! Stephen King is on my list too, and some Stephen King's book-based-movies too!

Trish - I know! Dracula was great, obviously, and I'm already loving Frankenstein.

Kailana - Oh, you really should, it is pretty awesome..!
