Dark Fantasy.

These are the categories for the annual R.I.P. challenge that I've participated in for the past few years.  All year, I keep track of books in these genres to read when Autumn comes around and the R.I.P. challenge begins.  Now I just have to narrow down which ones to attempt to read before Halloween!  I've been in a reading slump the past couple of months due to family problems and I'm hoping R.I.P. can bring me out of my reading slump...and maybe even out of the slumps in other areas of my life. 

 There are several "perils" within the challenge.  I usually participate in Peril the First (read four books).  I love suspense movies, but I always try to save a suspenseful/scary movie for Halloween, and then when that night rolls around my husband and I are usually just exhausted after the chaos of trick-or-treating with kids and don't watch a movie after all.  This year I'm going to try for Peril the First, Peril on the Screen, and Peril of the Short Story.  

Peril the First:
1. The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall  by: Katie Alender

2. Black-Eyed Susans  by: Julia Heaberlin

4. You  by: Caroline Kepnes
Peril of the Short Story:
Shadows and Monsters: Stories for Halloween  by: Grace A. Dow
Peril on the Screen:
"The Gift"

I really hope that RIP does help pull you out of your reading slump, and your other slumps!!! It's definitely already helped reinvigorate my reading.
