I am first!LOL!
First book down!
+JMJ+First film down! =D
Added three reviews up, though they were read slightly before the RIP V Challenge began... :)
Watched a movie, thought about books to read. That is a start at least.
is it cheating to start with a picture book that is essentially 26 pages? it is quite the delectable appetizer.L @ omphaloskepsis
Review for Cover Her Face by PD James is up :)Contemplatrix, I started with the shortest book in my list too :P
Great, I'm done with the first book, three more to go. This is so much fun!
Book 2 review is up. :) Changeless by Gail Carriger is done. Will be adding Blameless by the same author to my list. Haha.
Finally got my review up for Stephen King's Under the Dome! Off to read some other reviews...
Just posted a brief review of the first book I've read for this - Come Closer by Sara Gran.
Review 3: Blameless by Gail Carriger is up :) Will be taking a break from scary books for a bit :P Haha. I may need to add more to my list.
I'm really surprised that I haven't seen The Passage on any lists yet. Has anyone read it? Just curious before I contemplate tackling it:)
first book of the challenge up! Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris
Second book read - Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson!
Got some short stories under my belt. Now to tackle a novel!
First book done! The Road by Cormac McCarthy
My first short story review is up.
Needful Things is done! :) I didn't really review it, so I didn't do a linky. I'm going to keep reading though, this has really gotten me in the mood!
Just finished reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson today. I think it was good to start with a classic!- Christy
Woohoo, second book read and review posted! I'll leave the other two books for October.
First book down...I am probably going to read more than I planned. I'm in a creepy-thriller-mystery book mood right now. No penalty for going over, I assume??
First book down and now on to Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror!
Two movies, one book, and a couple of short stories (that I didn't review b/c they were awful) - progress!
2nd review is up, 'House of Leaves.' looking forward to something a bit shorter now.~L @ omphaloskepsis.
Wow no.114 I'm so impressed that there are so many reviews up already. I actually started reading Above Ground: The Affected Parade by A M Harte just before the challenge began. Then when I finished I thought it would be perfect for this. Please go check it out because it is a new piece of writing and can use all the support.
Another book under my belt, and a movie as well! :) "Blood of the Children" by Alan Rodgers, and "The Uninvited". Did a semi-review of the movie at least!
Review from John (Layers of Thought)Its called "Dante's Journey" and it is a modern interpretation of "Dante's Inferno".
2nd book review up. (Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror) loved it! vague disquiet still fermenting in the back of my brain. Ready to receive the next 2 books in the series please!
1st review of R.I.P.V! More to follow!
Just reviewed The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, but I'm pretty sure I'm the last one in the entire universe to read that book :P
1st RIP review is up - this one's an audio book. More to come!
Just added my first two reviews:The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell (post-apocolyptic novel with zombies)andDaddy's Little Girl by Mary Higgins Clark (cozy mystery / comfort reading)
First actual book review up! Off to check out what everyone else has been reading while I was engrossed in Shirley Jackson. :)
Read Frankenstein for the first time...how did I NOT read this one before? Enjoyed it! Very much.
Ok, Graham Joyce's The Tooth Fairy is now my favorite book form this challenge. Whoa. Read it!
Finally got my first review up! Second will be coming shortly.
Kraken by China Mieville. Dark urban fantastic comedy?!
Mockingjay added, though I couldn't really decide whether or not it fit the confines of the RIP challenge. Dark, dystopic future...
Two down....two to go!
Finally jumped in, and have a couple of reads ready to go. Plus all these recommendations too!
Finished reading Carrie, and watched The Mist... never watching THAT again!!! :)
First book down - great YA title.... Escape From Furnace: Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith.

Just finished The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. Great book! Now I'm reading the ghost stories of Edith Wharton.
Santa Fe Edge was a bomb! Avoid
I've completed the challenge!! Four books read and reviewed!
I have now completed the challenge - still have a couple of spooky books left - but may save these for next year :)
I completed the Challenge, plus one! This was really fun, and I can't wait until next year. I may even add a review or two before the challenge ends. Thanks for hosting!
My fourth book is up! I've completed the challenge!
I've added Jim Butcher's second book of The Dresden Files, Fool Moon.
My 3rd book review is up, Caitlin R. Kiernan's The Red Tree.

I read a whole bunch of RIP books during Readathon and will be posting links in batches. :)
Just posted my lin, but forgot the title of mthe book.The Physick Book of Deliverance Daneso far 3 books down - 1 more to go!!
Hi Carl! Could you delete #393 for me? I accidentally put the wrong title. Thanks!
I am done! What great fun, again, Carl! My wrap up post:http://pageafterpage-kim.blogspot.com/2010/09/autumn-fun.html
Three down! Messing with the rules a little, but I think it's okay. :)
Finished! Thanks for another fun year!
Forgot to post a couple of links here so I apologize for the glut! I'm up to 18 adult and children's books reviewed and still going (one sitting here for review and starting another).
Even though its a romance... its very scary in parts. My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. Goes to show reincarnation can be creepy.
Just posted my second review! I've since read two other books but haven't gotten the reviews up yet. Hey! I finished my particular peril! But I'm going to try to get in "It" and "The Passage" by the end of the month...I must be nuts.
Posted my review of A Dark Dividing. Definitely a nice chilling atmosphere perfect for RIP challenge.- Christy
Jinkies! Just posted my first review for RIP. Sorry it's coming so late--there will be more soon: have a cool memoir underway, with Benjamin Black's Silver Swan and an intriguing Japanese conundrum on deck...Lots of reading for 2 weeks left!
Finished four novels! Just one more short story (or two) and I'm done.
Finished Peril the First with four (+) books read. Now I can focus on more short stories. :)
Technically I have finished Peril the First. I have read and reviewed 3 books. Read a fourth, but still mulling over how to write a review of it. Also read a couple of Shirley Jackson short stories, and watched multiple films. Twas a good RIP Challenge season so far! :)
Continuing on past the required Peril of the First reading, have just posted book review #5 Whispers of the Bayou by Mindy Starns Clark.now on to Peril on the Screen!
Better late than never to start posting!
Phew! Time is running out!
Done! Thank you for a wonderfully scary season Carl!!http://kristinasfavorites.blogspot.com/2010/10/rip-v-challenge-complete.html
Passed The Peril the First some time ago, but have only just posted my fourth R.I.P. review, so only now do I feel that I have succeeded in this challenge.
Got at least one movie for the Peril on the Screen portion of the challenge! I guess I've sort of completed the whole thing. Super great time!
We have 3 reviews just posted: One translated crime thriller - The Devil's Star by Jo Nesbo, another court room thriller - Buying Time, and Dracula in audio. The last post contains some pictures we took in Whitby, England - a year or so ago where a portion of the story of Dracula is set. Very pretty and Gothic. The Abbey is amazing!
A bunch of movies and shorts guaranteed to scare and a huge give away link up to win Halloween books.
2 reviews posted! I need to get moving...
I just posted my first review but unfortunately that would be my only one because I already know that I won't be bale to finish second book. But at least I finished Peril the third :).
I'm extremely slow but I did finish ONE book for the challenge! I may need to downgrade my challenge level from Peril the Second to Peril the Third, if that is permissible...
Had to post the same story 2x, as I accidentally posted the wrong link the first time. You can remove #565(Misty, Book Rat)
I just finished The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton. Fantastic! So glad this challenge inspired that read.
Just completed Dracula, which was brilliant! And this means that I have completed RIP!
+JMJ+ WOHOO! COMMENT #100!!! =DI've just finished "Peril of the Screen" and am very proud of myself! =)But please don't ask me how "Peril the First" worked out for me. =P
Hanging in the middle of Peril the First (guess I'll have to find myself next year) with the awesome Benjamin Black...Thanks so much for doing this. It is fun, even when not completed. Happy Halloween!!
Just posted a review of the Roger Zelazny short story "The Monster and the Maiden".
I forgot to post my review of Stieg Larsson's great book "The Girl Who Played With Fire" when I reviewed it on my blog so I just posted it now.I have one more to post, too! This Challenge has been a lot of fun!~ Amy
This was fun, especially because I read some classics that I probably should have read a long time ago. Thanks for hosting this!
Ending my challenge with my Halloween Peril on the Screen reviews: The Orphanage; I Sell the Dead; and The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire.
I think I forgot to post a title or two, but I finished and it was great fun. Thanks Carl!
Wee bit late but it's posted!
Just now posting my wrap-up (sorry!). I absolutely love this challenge and I can't wait for RIP the Sixth! Thanks so much, Carl, for hosting again.
