What: Readers Imbibing Peril (RIP) III Challenge
When: 1 September – 31 October 2008
Who: Carl (Stainless Steel Droppings). Post reviews at R.I.P.ing Yarns.

This is my first time participating in the RIP reading challenge.

This year, participants were asked to list a pool of potential books to read, and decide which of the “perils” to undertake. I chose Peril the First, which was to read four books in two months.

I was really looking forward to reading all the books listed. Sadly however, several of them couldn’t hold my interest and I did not finish them.

Of the four books I finished, Twist was my favorite — though I wasn’t disappointed in the others. In fact, I can’t even say which was my least favorite.

Would I participate next year? Definitely.

RED books are on multiple reading challenges:

Twist by Colby Hodge {2 Sep 08} (REVIEW)
Night Keepers by Jessica Andersen {12 Oct 08} (REVIEW)
The Devil’s Footprints by Amanda Stevens {21 Oct 08} (REVIEW)
Personal Demons by Stacia Kane {13 Sep 08} (REVIEW)
Dead to Me by Anton Strout (DNF)
Night Life by Caitlin Kittredge (DNF)
Suspense and Sensibility by Carrie Bebris ***
The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason (DNF)

*** = Read at a later date.


RIP III Wrap-Up — 2 Comments

  1. I finished this challenge as well.

    So you didn’t like The Rest Falls Away? I thought it was just okay and I did skim through some of it. The books get better as the series progresses. But I would have stopped at book one had I not gotten the first two at the same time.

  2. Not that I didn’t like it — because I liked the concept….It just wasn’t hooking me in the way I thought it would.
