RIP VIII, y'all! I am so excited to start my perilous reading. As with every year of this challenge, I have a long list of books I plan to read. I won't bother choosing a participation level because I'll be overdoing it (as usual).
First are the Read-Alongs ...
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova (hosted by The Estella Society, through Sept. and Oct.)
Revenge by Yoko Ogawa (reading with Nat of In Spring the Dawn)
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare (for 100 Top Chapter Books project, discussion on Oct. 15 at The Estella Society)
The Witches by Roald Dahl (for 100 Top Chapter Books project, discussion on Oct. 31 at The Estella Society)
Next are the Rereads ...
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
The Time of the Ghost by Diana Wynne Jones
And finally are the New Reads ...
The Devil's Gentleman: Privilege, Poison, and the Trial That Ushered in the Twentieth Century by Harold Schechter (non-fiction)
Greenwitch by Susan Cooper
The Monk by Matthew Lewis
The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Watcher in the Shadows by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Which Witch? by Eva Ibbotson
I have a pretty Pinterest board for these books if you want to see all of the covers and a bit of the reasoning behind why I chose them. I'll be reading them, of course, all through September and October, including during the read-a-thon on October 12th!
If anyone is interested in joining me for any of these books, drop me a line. And if you need some great recommendations, check out my other fancy Pinterest board of highlights from past RIP years. Or if you have your own list going, which books are you most looking forward to reading this fall?
Reveling in it all,
