R.I.P. X (And Other Fun Going Ons)

Okay folks this is officially my favorite time of the year.  While I enjoy all of the season, there is something about Fall that just holds a special place in my heart.  And R.I.P. is my absolute favorite challenge of all times!  Scary books and thrilling reads.....I am SO there!  I've already begun reading for this challenge even though I am a bit behind when it comes to signing up.  Really when am I ever not behind lately?  Actually don't answer that.  Ha!  I'm officially signing up for:

I've participated in this challenge for so many years now and each time I add a ton of books to my TBR list.  My favorite parts of the challenge are reading other readers' reviews and coming up with a ridiculous reading pool that I can choose from.  I'm signing up for Peril the First which is committing to reading four books that fit in for this challenge.  I'm basically hoping to read only books in the next two months that fit in this challenge but am committing to four for sure!

Here are just some of the possibilities that I am hoping to read in the upcoming months.  Sorry for the blurry quality but I was in a rush to get this post finished before the Bears opening season game begins (and yes that seems to be my finger in the corner. Sigh!). 

This isn't even counting all of the R.I.P. goodies that I have loaded on my kindle.  So much good reading ahead of me I can't even.  I am pumped!  Loving the banners as always which were created by Abigail Larson.  Here is to lots of spooky reading!!

This time of year also makes me think of read-a-thons so I couldn't resist signing up for the Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon which starts tomorrow and goes thru September 27th.  Sign up here if you are interested.

I'm not behind in my reading goals by any means but I could still really use some extra reading time.  I may or may not have signed up for too many blog tours and would really like to get ahead of the game.  Plus, you see the pile of books that I would like to read for R.I.P.  Extra reading time would be very good at this point.  Goals for this read-a-thon are to finish at least four books.  As this is an extra long read-a-thon I feel like this is achievable.  I'm currently reading Everything She Forgot which will be my first read for this read-a-thon.  After that not sure but most likely it will come from the above picture.

Since I have lots of great reading ahead of me I'm off to work on my laundry piles.  Then I can actually sit down with a book and read without feeling too guilty as my house is semi-clean.  I'm also hoping to go visit other participants of these two events just so I can add to my TBR a little bit more.  Ha!

Happy Sunday and Happy Spooky Reading!


  1. Happy Sunday, Sam! I hope you are able to fit in a lot of reading today. You have some tempting titles here.

  2. Happy Sunday to you too! I meant for my Sunday to be all-reading-all-the-time, but I ended up having a horrible allergic reaction to some unknown thing, taking a Benadryl to heal myself, and immediately conking out for a three-hour nap. So. Not so much reading as I intended. :/

  3. Good to hear what's going on with you, Sam! You have got some great books in your 'maybe' pile. And I'm going to be excited to hear what you think about Everything She Forgot. It's been on my list for a while. I can't think why it has taken me so long to participate in RIP. Seems like the perfect challenge for a reader such as myself. ;-)

  4. Good luck with both the challenge and the read-a-thon! If I thought I would get any more reading done by signing up for the read-a-thon, I might. But with our vacation last week, work being so busy, and company coming this weekend and staying for a week and a half, I don't see it happening. I'll be lucky to finish more than the one book I've already finished. Oh, what I wouldn't give to sneak away and just read . . .

  5. I love Fall too and I just love the R.I.P. Challenge. Haven't join in just yet as I'm still getting settled back from vacation but will be joining soon. Can't wait to read some spooky good reads.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
