Look what I found?!? A reading event for September and October!

R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril X
What, you may ask, is this? 
It is RIP X and runs September 1-October 31, 2015!
You should know by now that I do NOT read horror 
and do NOT like to be scared!
However, I DO love mysteries!
You can select the challenge you wish to complete. 

The books must be from any 
of these categories:




Dark Fantasy




I have elected to read 4 books:

X by Sue Grafton

After Her by Joyce Maynard

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

The Red House Mystery by A.A. Milne

The last two will also count as Classics.

And then I realized the Literary Wives read for October is a perfect fit!

The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison

Our reviews of this will be posted on Monday, October 5th!

Here are past Literary Wives reviews!

I guess I'll be reading 5! :)

Visit The Estella Society page and join in! 
Which Peril(s) will you select? 


  1. This challenge sounds like fun! I would like to read more thriller/suspense. Maybe The Silent Wife would fall into this category.
    I'm curious to hear about The Red House Mystery - I don't know anything beyond Milne's children's books.

    1. Ha! Funny you should mention that. As soon as I had posted this this morning, it occurred to me that The Silent Wife was perfect for this. I will need to add it to my posting! :) (A good way to plug the Literary Wives discussion group, too! Big duh!)
      Regarding the Milne, I am in the same boat as you. I just happened to pick this up very cheap at a Library Book Sale.

  2. I enjoyed so much Rebecca, need now to read other books by the same author, I also want to read her recent biography by Rosnay

    1. That's interesting. I hadn't seen that she had written a biography. Unfortunately, I must wait until it is published in English, however... :(

  3. I have just joined this challenge, as I heard about it very recently. Since I have two blogs, I am participating on one of them -- my literary fiction blog, MINDSPIRIT BOOK JOURNEYS. My other blog is dedicated to YA Fiction.

    The books you've selected look very intriguing. I am not familiar with some of them, but will certainly find out more. I see that one of your picks is "Rebecca". That's one of my favorite novels. If you've never read it before, you're in for a real treat!

    I'm going to be checking out your reviews. Thanks for sharing!

  4. P.S. I hate the horror genre, too! Lol.
