Reading Challenge Wrap-up: Reading Challenge: R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (RIP) IX

Banner for the RIP IX challenge.Hello my lovely readers!

Tomorrow marks the official end of Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings’ RIP Challenge, and since I know that I will not be finishing another read for the challenge, I decided to post my wrap-up today.

I got really into the reading challenge this year, as I’m sure you could tell from the influx of creepy books on my blog!  Most of the books I read over the last two months fit into the parameters of the challenge, which is to read something sufficiently creepy in any of the following genres to set the tone for Halloween:

Mystery.
Suspense.
Thriller.
Dark Fantasy.
Gothic.
Horror.
Supernatural.
Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.

I read a total of 10 books for the challenge.  I’ll break the list down by rating for you all.

5 star reads

4 star reads

3 star reads

2 star reads

Superlatives

Of these 10 reads, 3 were review copies and 3 fit into my Bottom of the TBR Pile Challenge.  As for format, 4 were print, 4 were ebooks, and 2 were audiobooks.  A nice distribution, I think!

The challenge really put me in the mood for Halloween.  It maybe did too good of a job!  I’m ready for some light-hearted romances now, people. Lol.  The focused selection of reading materials really helped me take a good chunk out of my TBR pile, which I appreciated.  Stay tuned in November for a return to the wide variety of reading you’ve come to expect here at Opinions of a Wolf!

Did you enjoy seeing me participate in the challenge?  Did you participate in the challenge too?  What was your favorite review I wrote for the challenge?

    I’m glad to see you enjoyed this event again and you finished 10 books; which is great. I also took part in this event. I finished 4 books and straight after dove into a historical adventure/romance for something different 🙂

      That’s great, Jessica! I haven’t had time to catch up with blogs recently but I hope you’ve posted a wrap-up I can check out 🙂

      I wound up diving right into a romance too, lol.
