I was thinking about skipping R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (RIP) this year. There’s so much going on, and I’m putting so much energy into job-hunting, I don’t have a lot left over. All my creative writing is going into customizing resumes and cover letters for each job I apply to.
But it is September now, and the weather has thoughtfully turned cool and grey. Even if I don’t post for RIP, I’m still going to read other people’s reviews; I get such great recommendations from them every year. So this morning, I checked in on the site, and was greeted by this sweet miss:
Now, how’m I gonna say no to that little face? I just can’t. It’s RIP time, the happiest time of year! If I only have a little room for it, that’s better than none. So I’m committing to Peril the Third–read and review one mystery/thriller/horror/Gothic/dark fantasy book in the next two months. Anything more will be gravy.
Just saying I’m in has made me so much happier. Let’s get RIPping!
