This challenge always trips me up a bit, because it just doesn’t feel like Fall in September around here and I forget R.I.P. starts September 1st. Though a late arrival, I am not less excited to get into reading for ‘scary October.’
This is the 12th year of the R.I.P. Challenge and I love its simplicity: from September 1st through October 31st read books and/or watch movies that scare you! More specifically, choose from these genres–
Organized loosely (because they are optional), you can choose different ‘perils’ (categories?) to help you feel part of the Challenge.
I plan to participate in multiple perils as I will be reading and seeing books, novellas, short stories and films, oh my….
