R.I.P. VIII is here!

I won't go too much in detail here about R.I.P. (R.eaders I.mbibing P.erilbecause by now we all know and love Carl's yearly Fall reading "challenge." Basically, we're reading the scary for two months in one of my most favorite times of year. If you've been living under a rock, you simply must go check it out at Carl's blog, Stainless Steel Droppings.

I will be embarking on the following this time:

Read two books of any length that you believe fit within the R.I.P. categories.

I'm going to read at least two (plus the group read):
  • Joyland, Stephen King
  • (this one depends on what I get for my Wheel of Fortune Spin (curious? Look here)

This is for those of us that like to watch suitably scary, eerie, mysterious gothic fare during this time of year. It may be something on the small screen or large. It might be a television show, like Dark Shadows or Midsomer Murders, or your favorite film. If you are so inclined, please post links to any R.I.P.-related viewing you do on to the Review Site as well.

Insidious 2, anyone? I'll be seeing it the first weekend it's out. I can't wait! I'm also hoping to see a film called We Are What We Are. See the trailer HERE. It looks off the hook! I'm sure I will be watching more scary, as I LOVE horror films and anything remotely scary or creepy.

Finally, there's this...

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. This will be a re-read for me, but it's one of my favorite books and I've often thought I would read it again someday. Why not join in with others in reading it this time? Too right!

Thanks to Carl for hosting once again. I look forward to his "challenges" every year!
