Hello my fellow bookworms, I think I could have blinked and missed the last two months. Scarily the 31st October is already upon us and that means the end of R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril X, hosted by Andi and Heather of The Estella Society. I signed up for Peril the First level, which means I was aiming to read 4 books for the event. Here’s what I managed to read:
- The Valley of Fear by Arthur Conan Doyle – a classic Sherlock Holmes mystery. A fascinating and comforting read which I just flew through.
- The Raven’s Head by Karen Maitland – a dark and atmospheric historical tale with a supernatural twist. A little too dark for me I was hoping my next read would be a little lighter.
- Airs Above the Ground by Mary Stewart – a nostalgic suspense set in the beautiful Austrian mountains, just the lighter mystery I was hoping for.
- The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle – another classic, and perhaps the most famous, Sherlock Holmes mystery. My full thoughts still to be posted.
I am really pleased to have finished the 4 books I hoped to read. I have also started reading mysterious Lamp Black, Wolf Grey by Paula Brackston. Although I didn’t sign up for the Peril on the Screen level I did watch Midwinter of the Spirit (2015) a new supernatural-drama which was perfect for this event.
Did you take part in R.I.P X? What did you read? Did you have a favourite read?
