Are you ready for some thrills and chills? I was so excited when I saw that Readers Imbibing Peril (R.I.P. XVII) is back!  I’m here for the spooky reads, the cozy atmosphere and of course hearing about what you are reading.

In case you don’t know, there are several perils you can participate in such as Peril of the Short Story where you would read some spooky shorts or Peril of the Screen and enjoy a thrilling film. I typically do try to watch a spooky film (around Halloween of course!).

As always, one of the best part of joining in a reading event or challenge, is coming up with a pile of potential reads. Here are some I’m considering:

Chapter and Curse by Elizabeth Penney. This happens to be the September selection for my mystery book group. A cozy mystery set in a bookstore. I’m already sold.

Dracul by Dacre Stoker. This is a prequel to Dracula so I think this could be the perfect choice. I did read Dracula several years ago for R.I.P. and absolutely loved it.

Silence for the Dead by Simone St. James. In a remote hospital for shell-shocked veterans in 1919, a young woman arrives pretending to be a nurse – and hiding her own secrets. But the ghosts that haunt the halls of Portis House haunt the mad and the sane alike.

The Tenth Girl by Sara Faring. At the very southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. Legend has it that the land will curse those who settle there.

I want to read all of these but of course I wouldn’t be surprised if I switch around books to fit my mood.

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 or other social media posts.
