R.I.P VIII Wrap Up

Saturday, November 2, 2013


This year's R.I.P. Challenge, hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings, went so well for me! Of the books listed on my original post, I read all but one. Below is the complete list of what I read and links to my reviews. This challenge is so much fun every year. I love reading mysteries, but I rarely devote a whole month to it. 

1) Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers
2) Faithful Place by Tana French
3) The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith
4) The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins (still reading this one)
5) The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
6) Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

7) American Gods by Neil Gaiman 
8) Misery by Stephen King 
9) A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore 
10) The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King
11) The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield 
12) M is for Malice by Sue Grafton

Wow, you did really awesome! It's the same with me, I got some books read towards RIP that had been staying on my shelves for a long time. I also read Sharp Objects and am now reading The Moonstone :)

That's a great list! I managed my four for the first Peril, but didn't read as many others as I'd hoped. It was such fun seeing the diversity of books that everyone was reading.
