R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril X

rip15There are always wonderful events being hosted around the blogosphere, but the R.I.P. Challenge, now in its 10th year, works particularly well for classics lovers. The event,which officially runs from September 1st through October 31st, encourages readers to read books that fall into the following categories:

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.

The rules of the event are simple:

1. Have fun reading.
2. Share that fun with others.

In past years the event has been hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings, but this year The Estella Society has taken the reigns. They offer multiple levels of participation so readers can do whatever works best for them. There is even a one book only option.

In the spirit of The Classics Club’s goal we’ve picked out a few books that would work well for the R.I.P. Challenge that are also classics. There are dozens more, but here’s a few good places to start.

  • We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
  • A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
  • Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  • The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe
  • The Woman in White or The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
  • Anything by Edgar Allan Poe
  • Anything by H.P. Lovecraft
  • Short stories by Flannery O’Connor
  • Mysteries by Agatha Christie
  • Mysteries by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

For a complete list of the details and to join in the fun, hop over to The Estella Society.
