I found this challenge over at Adventures in Borkdom. It is a yearly challenge hosted at Stainless Steel Droppings. The purpose of the R.I.P (R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril) Challenge is to read and enjoy books that could be classified as: Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural. R.I.P. VI officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.
I am officially signing up for Peril the First, which means reading four books of R.I.P. literature. And since I started reading Frankenstein today, that can be my first read. Though I might add a few Perils of the Short Story and Perils on the Screen!!
Update: I started the challenge by reading Carrie by Stephen King. I’ll link the reviews here as and when I post them!
Peril the First:
2. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
3. The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John Le Carre
4. Ghost Story by Peter Straub
Peril on the Screen:
1. The Nightmare Before Christmas
2. Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Peril of the Short Story:
1. Metzengerstein by Edgar Allan Poe

I'm so glad you are joining in this challenge as well, and thanks for the link to my blog. I almost dropped my coffee when I saw my blog mentioned on my google reader via your post!
So I can't wait to see what you'll be reading–I'm definitely getting some Stephen King and Shirley Jackson in for this challenge.
Frankenstein is a fantastic way to kick off the RIP season! Love that book, Dracula too.
One of these days I really must read Frankenstein…
Borkadventures.Com – Oh, I was actually going to comment on your blog about the link, but I guess it slipped my mind. I hope you didn't mind! Stephen King is on my list too, and some Stephen King's book-based-movies too!
Trish – I know! Dracula was great, obviously, and I'm already loving Frankenstein.
Kailana – Oh, you really should, it is pretty awesome..!
