RIP Wrap!

So here's how it shook down for me regarding my RIP reads this year.

What I said I'd do:

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
Supernaturally by Kiersten White
Under the Dome by Stephen King
Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson
An Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice

And then I also said I'd watch something, hopefully a Vincent Price movie
And I also said I'd do a group read.

What I actually did:

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz... loved.
Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson... did not like much.
Under the Dome by Stephen King...quite enjoyed.
Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice... quite enjoyed.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson... loved.

I didn't watch a Vincent Price movie, but I watched lots of Dr. Who and Supernatural, both of which are very spooky and creepy and perfectly wonderful.

And I DID accomplish a group read of Under the Dome AND a buddy read of Interview. Both very fun! Thanks guys!

So.... not bad for actually finishing a challenge, eh? RIP... you gotta love it. Thanks Carl!

Next year, I'm adding Neil Gaiman to the list. If I can handle King, I can handle Gaiman!


  1. You did a great job! Once of these years I will read Interview with a Vampire.

  2. I barely managed the one book I had to read on top of Under the Dome. Way to go! I've only liked one book by Gaiman.

  3. Reviews: Now you sound like me, and now I can finally say I've read it! :)

    Jenny: I tried American Gods once and put it down. Wow, it was a bit too much. But maybe I can try again.

  4. Congrats on finishing the reading challenge and lots of great reading!

  5. It is always fun to complete a challenge! Way to go!

  6. This was a fun challenge, I completed mine and put up yesterday.

    I definitely want to read Odd Thomas.

  7. Congrats on a successful RIP6!
