Well, I have been in a blogging slumber since...*checks last post*...January! Wow that's even longer than I was expecting. I have been watching you in my feed reader (that sounds way more creepy than I meant) but I have had so much going on I just didn't have the motivation to sit and post. Then, September 1st rolled in and was all awesome with its Fall/Halloween vibe, which is only my favorite time of year. So basically the RIP challenge has been the prince's kiss to bring me out of my slumber. RIP X is being hosted by The Estella Society this year and I am stoked about this perilous adventure.

Since I now work at a bookstore (I know right, dreams really do come true) I basically walk around all day longingly stroking books I want to read. I have my eye on so many so many for these next two months but since I am also back in school I am going to keep them on the shorter side.

I'm hoping to accomplish Peril the First in which I read four books with that certain creep factor.

The list I am going to pull from includes:

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
The Penguin Book of Witches by Katherine Howe
Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

I will also be taking part in Peril on the screen. I may be a big chicken, but I have an October tradition of Hocus Pocus and pumpkin candles that can't be broken. And I'll most likely throw in some Nightmare Before Christmas and maybe even Scream if I'm feeling crazy.

Yay! Can't wait!

Woohoo! I love seeing people's lists for RIP. It's such a great blogging event. I can vouch for the substantial scariness of Horrorstor and Coraline.

Also, hi! We missed you during your blogging break!
