R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX

Readers Imbibing Peril IX
(Art by Abigail Larson)
I can't believe that it's already time for my annual RIP read which is hosted by the lovely Carl over at Stainless Steel Droppings.  Not only is it that I don't know where this year has gone but I am slightly shocked this is the ninth year of the event!  I have taken part in this for the last six years and it's become a tradition to seek out, and set aside, material in anticipation.

As ever, this is about reading and watching material from the genres of...
Dark Fantasy.

Being a wet and a weed, this isn't my normal genre so what I love about this challenge is that it pushes me to read books that I normally wouldn't seek out and I have had some great experiences in previous years.  The lovely thing about this challenge is that Carl has two simple rules:

1. Have fun reading (and watching).
2. Share that fun with others.

I look forward to getting started and seeing what everyone else gets up to over at the R.I.P. IX review site.

Its not really my main genre either, but I am quite fond of it all the same. You've been in for six year, eh? Crazy, isn't it? I used to think "time flies" was just a cute saying. Not anymore. It is reality.

Every year, I get all giddy when Carl posts the big reveal of the artwork and that the "challenge" has started. I have yet to compile my list, but have a deep stack of books ready and waiting!

Because I also participate in Carl's Sci-Fi & Once Upon a Time experiences I find that my annual reading has now entered a seasonal rhythm an I actively now "save books up" for the next experience. Which means I have plenty of choice ready when they start!

There is never enough time to read everything I intend to but have already started to make inroads on my RIP reading pile. Nothing too scary yet though! :)
