RIP VI Challenge
It's baaaaack!!!! Silly me for forgetting that Carl's RIP Challenge was going to be starting soon. I know I promised you back to back reviews until I catch up (or the possibility of a blogging break) but this is something entirely different. This is exciting! I saw the first post this morning and was practically bouncing up and down before I had even finished my coffee. I LOVE this time of year and what it brings. Cooler days and nights, the leaves changing, and best of all... creepy reads! I would swear to you that I've been in the mood for these types of books for months and have been drawn to thrillers, mysteries, the gothic, and horror. I've got tons of books already checked out from the library that will fit in with this challenge and even more on hold.
I've decided to jump in with both feet and participate in Peril the First which requires the participant to read four books. This I can most definitely do. I'm also looking forward to participating in two of the three group reads that Carl will be hosting for this challenge. Storm Front by Jim Butcher will be a reread for me but it is one that I've been considering rereading for some time now. I'm a huge fan of this series even though I've only read the first 3 or 4 books. I will also be participating in the readalong for The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson. I've got this one on my shelves already and can't wait to read it! I've got tons upon tons of books that I want to read for this challenge but here are just a few of the possibilities that I'm considering:
And this is just the beginning. I have so many more possibilities that it kinda makes me giddy just thinking about it. Plus, as I go around and see what everyone else is reading...my TBR pile is going to grow by bounds! Yippee and hooray for fall!
(And now back to your regularly scheduled plan of catching up on book reviews...I can do it. I can do it. I can do it. Maybe...)
