RIP XII Challenge is Back

Can you believe this is the 12th year of the spooky, spectacular, RIP Challenge? Who doesn't love reading more mysteries and supernatural stuff as we begin to get a chill in the air and our thoughts turn to fall and Halloween!

Once again from September 1 through October 31st, Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings , who has hosted this event in all previous years has passed the baton to Heather and Andi to carry on the tradition. There are several levels of participation and you can read more about this by clicking on the Andi or Heather links in this post!

The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books or movies that could be classified as:
Dark Fantasy

I'm still working on my list of (4) books that I plan to read (pretty sure I'll squeeze for scary movies in as well) but, for right now these are the books I'm thinking about.

Hope you'll join in the fun of this challenge as well.

  1. Sleeping Beauties; Stephen King
  2. The Visitors; Catherine Burns
  3. Death of a Busybody; George Bellairs (British Crime classic)
  4. Depth of Lies; E.C Diskin


  1. Great choice of books! I'm doing this challenge too.

  2. Diane, I hope you'll enjoy this reading challenge! The Stephen King book featured here is new to me. Have a terrific weekend!

  3. Scary stuff! Too much for me, if I want to sleep.

  4. I've read a couple of the British Crime Class, just not this one. Loved them.

  5. I always have great intentions... maybe this year. I need to peruse my shelves. I'm sure there's something waiting to be read that will fit. Have fun!

  6. I absolutely love the cover of Death of a Busybody. My kind of book, for sure. Happy R.I.P.

  7. I am hosting a read along for Sleeping Beauties but maybe you already have a copy? I post the announcement this Monday.

  8. I made a list. There are plenty of mysteries and even a dark fantasy on my shelves. You will see by my reviews how I did!
