Fourth post of the day? Ah, why not. I promise I will slow down; there's just been a lot of catching up to do, and I'm certain a few books have been forgotten somewhere in these reviews... But while I was reading a few of my favourite book blogs, I came across a reading event that I have seen before but did not choose to participate in. It's called R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, or RIP. This will be the ninth year, but I suppose better late than never. Basically, you choose a level of Peril in which to participate, and you have from September 1st to Halloween night to work on and hopefully complete your choice of challenge. You're not required to have a blog or even to blog about the challenge, but that's my plan. :)

I have chosen Peril the Third, which tell you to read just one book that you believe fall within the event parameters; basically any horror or thriller or whatever. At least that's how I've read into it. My book choices are The Mysteries of Udolpho, by Ann Radcliffe, published in 1794. Fans of Jane Austen will recognize this title; Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey loves this Gothic tale very much.
Udolpho is one of those books that I have been intending to read for years now, basically ever since I came across the title in Northanger Abbey and found it was a real book. I even own an Oxford World's Classics edition. So I'm excited to finally delve into it as part of RIP IX.
