RIPxii and FrightFall Wrap-up for 2017

The month-long #FrightFall readathon came to an end Tuesday night. I finished only six books in October, but four of them were spooky or perilous in some manner (qualifying them for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril), and I made some progress on several other books.


I have not yet reviewed any of these, but if you join my merry band of followers on Goodreads, you should be able to see the reviews when they post. In the meantime, I will say that all of these except for the Lovecraft story are ones I would recommend. You may want to read the Lovecraft story for background on the LaValle story, but don’t expect to get any pleasure or entertainment out of it.

#RIPxii actually started at the beginning of September, so here are the perilous books I finished that month:

So I handily succeeded at Peril the First (to read at least four perilous books). Again, I recommend most of these. I’m maybe not terribly enthusiastic about the two comic book volumes, but don’t let that deter you if they seem like your thing. I do have a review up for the Perona novel, so you can see why I do not recommend it. The Christie story “Sing a Song of Sixpence” polished off  the Peril of the Short Story, and for Peril on the Screen I watched My Cousin Rachel (2017).

One thought on “RIPxii and FrightFall Wrap-up for 2017

  1. Thanks for joining us, Chris! You got some great reading in. I also read (listened to) The Ballad of Black Tom. I enjoyed it.

    I hope you enjoyed the month. Looking forward to seeing you next time!
