  1. You guys are wearing me down. What I just realized is that I have enough of qualifying books on my shelves to do the challenge already. I may have to succumb…

    • I’ve been waiting for R.I.P. ever since I first heard about it. I figure I’m spending my first blogging year learning which challenges I can actually finish!

  2. I too fell for it. I have so many books lined up for it.

    RIP IV read list

  3. Ooh, I look forward to hearing what books you come up with! I broke down and joined this too…I’d planned not to do anymore challenges this year, but this broke my resolve.

  4. Amanda- I figure I’m spending my first year as a blogger learning about challenges and figuring out which ones I will actually finish! I am really excited about R.I.P.

  5. wow, TWO wilke collins books AND the Historian on the list!! You do like to challenge yourself LOL.. I read the Historian last year and enjoyed it, and have the woman in white on my list but unsure if I will get to it.. too many books so little time!

  6. Such a deliciously eerie line up! Love your potential choices.

    Thank you so much for coming along for the fun this year. I am so glad you are going to be a part of this year’s R.I.P. Challenge and hope you have a great time with it.

  8. I read THe Historian for another RIP challenge and really enjoyed it. Happy reading!!

  9. This is such a fantastic challenge so glad to see you are joining in! I keep seeing Wilkie Collins showing up on a lot of lists. I just started The Woman in White and think it’ll be the perfect read for the challenge.
