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!

  1. I’m so happy you aren’t skipping, though trust me, I could perfectly understand if you needed to. That is a lot going on, not to mention all the day-to-day stuff that crops up. Nonetheless, Yay!!!!

    Even if you can just sneak a read in, I’m glad you are going to enjoy the season right along with us.

    I wish you all the best with job hunting. Hoping that you find something that doesn’t simply provide an income but makes you happy as well.
