It’s time for one of my most favorite reading events, R.I.P. XVI – yes, now in it’s 16th year. I had a great reading month in August but I have to say seeing Halloween displays and candy filling up the grocery store shelves, has me thinking about ghostly and spooky reads.

There are several perils so you can read a short story or watch a film. There’s even a R.I.P. Bingo card which is really cool. And, there’s also a group read of The Sundial by Shirley Jackson.

I have several books that I think would be great for this challenge. Let me know if you’ve read these titles:

The Crying Child by Barbara Michaels. An eerie wailing coming from the woods. Enough said.

The Good House by Tananarive Due. A story with some supernatural elements and of course a house with a special history.

The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen by Katherine Howe. This one is about a filmmaker, a seance and a psychic. What could go wrong?

No doubt, I’ll find others to mix in or take the place of these. I’d really like to read some short stories, watch a scary movie and maybe listen to some podcasts.

I would love to hear if you are joining and if you already have a list of planned reads. Don’t forget to tag @PerilReaders in your Instagram posts and have a thrilling time!
