R.i.P. XIII Readathon TBR

The beginning of September marks the beginning of one of my favorite readathons, Readers Imbibing Peril (R.i.P.) XIII. The R.i.P. readathon lasts throughout the months of September and October, and you can participate as much or as little as you want, by reading books from one of these categories:

– Mystery
– Suspense
– Thriller
– Dark Fantasy
– Gothic
– Horror
– Supernatural
For more information, or to sign up, check out the site here. It’s very low-key, and if you want, you can participate in specific challenges, or “perils,” to get the most out of the readathon. I’ll be participating in Peril the First, which is to read 4 books from any of the above categories, and Peril of the Short Story, which is just to read a short story from any of the categories.
Because R.i.P. is such a long readathon, I like to go a little crazy with my TBR by searching my shelves for anything that fits the six categories, and making a giant TBR pile that I can then choose from throughout the readathon. I definitely don’t plan to read all or even most of the books I have listed here, but it’s nice to have a bunch of fall-ish options.
Here are some potential TBR picks:


The World of Lore: Monstrous CreaturesGreywalker (Greywalker, #1)White Is for WitchingLet the Right One InSunshineThreatsFoxloweThe DevourersSlade HouseGet in Trouble: StoriesOutDeathless (Leningrad Diptych, #1)Pretty Monsters: StoriesTill DeathAn Easy DeathThe Haunting of Hill HouseThe Bone Witch (The Bone Witch, #1)Stone Mattress: Nine Wicked TalesThe Drowning GirlZoo CityCertain Dark ThingsDreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories

I’m excited to kick off the readathon! In September, I know I’ll be picking up Charlaine Harris’s An Easy Death, since I was able to get an ARC at BookCon at an autographing session, but everything else is up in the air. I typically read the most R.i.P. books during October rather than September, because that’s when I’m most in the mood for fall-ish reads, so we’ll see.

Are you participating in the R.i.P. readathon? What books are you looking forward to picking up this fall?

  1. I love your potential TBR picks! I’ve only read a couple, but The Bone Witch is also on my potential TBR for R.I.P. this year, and I’d love to get my hands on a copy of White is for Witching and Certain Dark Things. The one I’m most looking forward to from my TBR is probably Something Wicked This Way Comes. Happy spooky reading πŸ™‚

  2. So many exciting autumnal reads! I have the book Pretty Monsters but wasn’t really into the writing when I first picked it up years ago, and so I put it down. Would be great to know your thoughts on the book and whether I should give it another try πŸ™‚

    1. I’ll definitely post my review if I give it a go! I’ve read 2 other collections from Kelly Link that I really loved (Magic for Beginners and Stranger Things Happen) so hopefully I’ll like this one as well. Her writing is definitely very weird, though πŸ™‚
