Out of the Shadows…

lavinia-portraitRIP1Happy Halloween!  Beware of ghosts and ghouls! 🙂

The end of October also marks the end of the Readers Imbibing Peril (R.I.P.) Challenge.  This two-month challenge focuses on horror and mystery…and while I don’t usually consider those my top genres, I always have fun with it!

Here’s the list of what I watched and read from the darker side…

  1. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
  2. The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells
  3. Rivers of London/Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch
  4. Sherlock Holmes: The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  5. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Peril on Screen

  1. Jane Eyre (1983 BBC Miniseries)
  2. The Invisible Man (1933)
  3. And Then There Were None (1945)

I seem to have trended towards the classics…which I can’t say really surprises me!  It’s been a fun and shivery fall, and now I’m looking forward to some sci fi for the winter…and I always look forward to fairy tales in the spring!

More immediately, the end of October also means National Novel Writing Month begins tomorrow.  I’m planning to participate for my third year, so come back tomorrow for my launch post, with some sneak peeks at writing plans.

  1. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed this event again. Finishing 5 means you managed to finish one more than me. I also love how you read several classic crime and horror novels 🙂
