RIP or Readers Imbibing in Peril is in its 11th year! It was first started by Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings, and last year was hosted by Andi and Heather of the Estella Society. Carl is back hosting it again this year!
This fall reading challenge is all about books of:
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.
I always go with Peril The First:
Read four books, of any length, from the very broad categories earlier defined as perilous. They could all be by the same author, a series of books, a random mix of classic and contemporary or whatever you like.
I’ve taken part for quite a few years now but this year I’ve decided to write up a list of POC authors whose works fit into those categories above. I’m still working on this list, so please let me know if you have any recommendations!
(For these four writers, I’m gonna say, pretty much all their work fits in!)
Tananarive Due (I loved The Good House)
Natsuo Kirino – Grotesque; Real World; Out
Asa Nonami – The Hunter
Keigo Higashino -I’m reading his latest translated work, Under the Midnight Sun, right now. It is massive but I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN. Also The Devotion of Suspect X
Liu Xiaolong – Inspector Chen series
Han Kang – The Vegetarian
Ken Liu – The Paper Menagerie and other stories
Zen Cho (Sorcerer to the Crown)
Yangtze Choo (Ghost Bride)
Alain Mabanckou (Memoirs of a Porcupine)
Those whose books I’ve yet to read
