Top Ten Tuesday: RIP XVI wrap up


Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's is a Halloween freebie, so I have decided to do a round up of all the things that I did for RIPXVI, which ends on Halloween.

For those who don't know, RIP stands for Readers Imbibing Peril which has been going for 16 years, which is an eternity in blogging terms! It's a chance to dip into anything that might be Mystery, Suspense,Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror or Supernatural.

Here is what I have read and watched this year for RIPXVI.

I read....

The Black Swan of Paris by Karen Robards - I didn't intentially read this for RIPXVI but it certainly fit the criteria!

The Sundial by Shirley Jackson  - This is was the group read. I haven't finished it yet, but I will.

I watched....

What We Do in the Shadows - perfect Friday night viewing. We still need to finish the first season.

Squid Game  - Finished this series.

Birds of Prey: Harley Quinn - This was a bit of fun to watch.

Attack on Titan  - This an anime series that we were watching with my son. The final episodes start to be release in January next year.

Shaun of the Dead - This is one of those movies that I always stop and watch if I see it on when I am flicking through the channels.

I also did a Music A-Z post about spooky songs.

I've already started thinking about some ideas for next year!


  1. Birds of Prey does sound fun. Harley!

    Squid Game- oh my gosh I just finished that too, that was a TRIP.

  2. I managed one very cozy mystery set in a magical bookstore over Halloween. That's about as spooky as I can get with my reading.

  3. I've just finished Fraterfest and think I will try to join RIPXVI next year. Love reading scary reads this time of the year.

    Happy Halloween and here's my Ten Pets you can get at Stephen King's Pet Shop

    1. I hope you do get too join in with RIP next year.

  4. I really wanted to do better for this year's RIP-XVI challenge, but you know what they say about best laid plans! Still I have 5 more days to go, I might just watch Shaun of the Dead -- it looks great. Thanks for the recs!

  5. I’m with Deb! I think a cozy mystery with, umm, a black cat, maybe, is quite enough spook, thank you very much. 😆

    Happy TTT!

    1. We watched much more than I can read Lori.

  6. R.I.P. has been going on for forever! I used to participate, but I haven't in YEARS. Maybe next year I'll get on the ball. Looks like you had lots of fun with it.

    Happy TTT!

  7. I've never heard of RIP, maybe I'll participate next year.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  8. I watched Squid Game too! That was intense.

  9. I recently read We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson and I really need to read more of her stuff.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
