R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XI: RIP: Roundup post


Readers Imbibing Peril is an annual event hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings that for the months of September and October sees us reading, watching, gaming and discussing books and adaptations that, in common with the time of year and the drawn in nights, is a celebration of the darker side of our reading:

Dark Fantasy

This is a very relaxed event and, in fact, the main aim is simply to have fun.  With that in mind I had plenty of fun and managed to watch and read the following:

  1. Stranger Things – review of the tv series
  2. Chasing Embers by James Bennett – dark fantasy
  3. A Deadly Affection by Cuyler Overholt – murder mystery, suspense
  4. The Family Plot by Cherie Priest – ghost story, horror, gothic
  5. The Motion of Puppets by Keith Donohue, dark fantasy
  6. A City Dreaming by Daniel Polanski – dark fantasy
  7. The Apothecary’s Curse by Barbara Barnett – dark fantasy, gothic, horror
  8. Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – dark fantasy, horror

Thank you once again to Carl for hosting this event – I love taking part in RIP!

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes!

    The one that is catching my interest is A City Dreaming. Well done – you’ve risen to this RIP Challenge brilliantly!

      Thanks – I must confess that I forgot to post a couple of the reviews! But, I did read the books.

        Good for you! You had a really good reading month in October, especially when taking into account the #SPFBO contest you were working on…

      • @lynnsbooks

        Yeah, it’s nice to be onto stage II. It’s a little bit more relaxed.

    I’ve just started watching Stranger Things (I’m at episode 2) and find this show very intriguing and extremely well done, especially with the period setting.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m really looking forward to the second series – not till next year – I can hardly wait!

    I really need to catch up and read Certain Dark Things

    I love how many types of books this event encompasses. Having a predilection for darker fiction, I think almost everything I read can be considered in these categories 🙂

    I’m glad to hear you had fun in this event again this year. Even though you weren’t counting, 7 books and 1 TV show is a brilliant result 🙂

      Unfortunately I forgot to post a couple over on the review site but I did read them so I’ve added them here!
