πŸŽƒ R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XV Wrap-Up

Hello fellow bookworms, sorry this post comes to you rather late, but life has been rather chaotic and tiring over the last couple of weeks: with my isolation, return to work and anxiety spike, and now a new lockdown! πŸ™ During all that madness the end of October and the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XV reading event quietly passed me by! Now let’s go back and see what spooky reading we did:

I am a little sad I only managed to read one book for R.I.P this year, however what a great book it was! Now let’s have a peek from behind the cushion at the spooky viewing we did:

That is a ghoulishly good amount of viewing – If I do say so myself! And a nice mixture of new releases and comforting re-watches on the lead up to and over the Halloween period.


So that’s another R.I.P over and while not my best year, I am not going to be hard on myself, because let’s face it this has been a pretty darn weird autumn/year, with the β€˜pandemic-that-shall-not-be-named’ going on. Therefore I am just pleased to have enjoyed some good health, books and shows. I look forward to taking part again next year! πŸ‘‹πŸ“šπŸ‘»

Now over to you: What do you think of what I’ve read and watched? Did you take part in the R.I.P event too? Have you been reading or watching anything spooky?

  1. At least the one book you read was a really good one, which is the most important thing! I managed to read three books for RIP but I was disappointed that I didn’t read more as it’s usually my favourite reading event of the year. I’m glad you had time for lots of spooky viewing!

    1. Yes, that the one book I did read was a great one, is the most important thing, Helen! Sorry to hear you didn’t read as much as you would have liked too – We can definitely blame the year we’re having! and yeah, thankfully I did make up for it with some fun, spooky viewing. πŸ™‚

  2. I think you’re right….it’s been a bit of an RIP year in general! (so we’ve been living it!) You did get in quite a bit of spooky viewing, something I didn’t manage to do at all.

  3. I think you have the right mindset – don’t be hard on yourself. This has been a very unusual year and my reading and blogging has been up and down like a yoyo.

  4. I was wondering when you were going to post the wrap up; I was eagerly awaiting. πŸ˜› You had quality over quantity, reading-wise. Not bad, considering that The Firebird counts at least for two, being so long. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you enjoyed all your movie viewing as well. I’ve never seen any of The Addams Family versions; perhaps I should.
    I read three books that count towards the challenge: Every Secret Thing (3*) and Season of Storms (4*), both by Susanna Kearsley, and Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman (5*). On the screen, I saw Frankenweenie -4*, Rebecca (2020)- 3*, Roald Dahl’s The Witches (2020)- 3*, and Hocus Pocus (1993) -4*.

    1. Aw thank you for eagerly awaiting this post – Good to know someone was looking forward to it! I certainly did go for quality over quantity and I never thought about the fact that The Firebird is long enough to be about two books! πŸ˜‰ I love Hocus Pocus and I really need to read Practical Magic, as I love the film. πŸ§™β€β™€οΈ I also saw they’d released remakes of Rebecca and The Witches, but I love the books and original film adaptations, that I wasn’t that interested to watch them, and seeing as you only rated them 3* I definitely won’t be rushing out to see them even more now! πŸ˜’ You definitely need to check out the original Addams Family films – I can’t comment on the new animated remake as I haven’t seen it.
