The pumpkins were carved. There are bowls upon bowls of candy around the house. Sniff, sniff. All good things must come to an end. R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII is no different.
I was ambitious this year and went for three categories instead of my obligatory Peril the First. I did complete Peril on the Screen with a screening of The Lost Boys and American Psycho. I failed to write reviews about either of them though, so you are just going to have to take me at my word.
I also aimed to participate in Peril of the Group Read with a reading of The Little Stranger. Interesting book, although not quite as scary as I expected.
Then there is Peril the First. I only had to read four books. I stopped keeping track at nine books but read eight additional more that I never went back to add. Seventeen books of horror, gothic, mystery, suspense, thriller, fantasy, and supernatural – that is a lot of scary reads. Even when I was at my most horrified, though, I loved every minute of it. I cannot wait to do it all again next year!

Did you participate in RIP VII? How did you do?
Oops … I meant "I want to read" those novels. Oy! You're probably right, though. 🙂
They would make some interesting movies.
It is my favorite "challenge" and the easiest one for me to finish. Seriously, I have enough books to complete this event ten times over!
You kicked serious RIP VII ass, my friend! I only finished 3 books, but they were tons o'fun.
You have a great list! I really want to see The Little Stranger and The Woman in White.
