October round up and RIP summary!

Readers Imbibing Peril (RIP – over at Stainless Steel Droppings) has finally come to it’s conclusion and I can’t believe how fast that went by.  Another really excellent event with loads of participants and book talk.  Running during September and October I managed to contribute the following (I did have a couple of others that were appropriate but I forgot to place the link! – doh):


  1. Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes
  2. Brood by Chase Novak
  3. The Splendour Falls by Susanna Kearsley


  1. The Broken Road by Teresa Frohock
  2. Spark by John Twelve Hawks
  3. The Undying by Ethan Reid
  4. Generation V by M L Brennan

A huge thanks to Carl for being such a fantastic host and taking the time to run this event.  It’s massively popular and I really look forward to choosing the books and waiting for all the other reviews. Thanks again! 😀

October round up:

I’ve had a bit of a self-imposed Halloween-a-thon over the past few weeks.  My October reads have been:

  1. The Broken Road by Teresa Frohock
  2. Puppet by Pauline C Harris
  3. Spark by John Twelve Hawks
  4. The Storyteller and her Sisters by Cheryl Mahoney
  5. The Undying by Ethan Reid
  6. The Tropic of Serpents by Marie Brennan
  7. The Endangered by S L Eaves
  8. The Fall by Bethany Griffin
  9. The Reviver by Seth Patrick
  10. Generation V by M L Brennan
  11. Fevre Dream by GRRMartin
  12. The Vampyre: A Tale by John W Polidori

Four vampire stories included – and all completely different styles!

Looking forward, November sees the start of a number of sci fi events.  This one here is particularly interesting and you might want to go and sign yourself up – looks like fun!

As for me, I’m going to mix up my November reads a little (I do have a couple of sci fi novels singled out) – October was a bit of a scare fest so it will be nice to sprinkle some good old fantasy into the mix – starting with The City Stained Red which I’m really looking forward to.

Let me know what you’re reading…

    You are doing Sci-Fi November as well? Sweet! 😀

      Well, technically speaking, ahem, I haven’t signed up yet. But I was thinking I could read that book I picked up from your blog last month – James Corey, plus I have Anne Leckie to read yet and a couple of series to finish – like Hugh Howey.

    Well done you! I only managed 3 of my planned 4 books for RIP, but I am half way through the last one! It’s a great event and I’m already planning what books in the 746 can be saved for next year!

    • lynnsbooks

      Actually, this year, I didn’t plan any books – which I think was good for me as my plans never seem to quite work out! I do love this event and also Once Upon a Time.

    yahhhhh I’m going to try for the sci fi november also – it won’t all be sci fi of course but hopefully more then I normally read! You did have a fabulous month glad to see you read Generation V!

    • lynnsbooks

      I loved Generation V and have bought the second already and pre-ordered the 3rd! I’ve got at least two sci fi novels that I have lined up – possibly four and maybe a film or two. I like trying to up my sci fi a bit – I tend to focus more on fantasy.

    Well done seven books for the R.I.P event is great, and twelve for the month is amazing! Happy reading in November 🙂

    • lynnsbooks

      I’m going to try a few sci fi novels for November – hoping to take part (only dipping my toe in though) in Sci Fi November – Rinns Reads. Are you joining in for a couple of books?
      Lynn 😀

      • jessicabookworm

        I don’t think so. While I like sci-fi I don’t tend to read a great deal of it. I hope you enjoy the event.

      • lynnsbooks

        Surprisingly, I usually find I’ve read more sci-fi than I think – of course, if The Time Machine is picked from your list you could include it!
