Halloween Reading Challenge

I absolutely love all things Halloween!! What better way to celebrate than to take part in a spooky read-a-thon? Especially one hosted by The True Book Addict. Check out the details on her blog- Castle Macabre. I'll list a few here as well.

I would also love some suggestions on what books to read.

  • Dates:  Monday, October 3 at 12:00am through Sunday, October 9 at 11:59pm (your time zone).
  • To go along with the scary theme, this time I will have a requirement.  You must read at least ONE scary book during the read-a-thon.  If you are not a horror fan, then make it a thriller or a mystery, as long as the book has some kind of spooky premise to it.  Those of you who fulfill this requirement, and sign in at the starting line, will automatically be entered in the participant giveaway.
  • Read as much or as little as you want.  You do not have to join in all week.  Start during the week or just do the weekend.  It's your decision.  Just be sure to sign in at the starting line when you start reading.
  • I will be hosting a scary themed mini-challenge and hopefully we will have other mini-challenges and/ or giveaways (see note above).
  • Our hashtag for Twitter will be #frightfall 


  1. Just wanted to stop by and thank you for signing up for the read-a-thon! Also, for following Castle Macabre. I am now following you back. =O)

    Some favorite horror novels of mine: Hell House by Richard Matheson, Bag of Bones by Stephen King, Duma Key by Stephen King. You usually can't go wrong with anything by Dean Koontz. Oh, I almost forgot...Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist...a favorite too! If you're looking for something a little less horror and more gothic, The Keep by Jennifer Egan is a good one. Also, The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters and Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. Hope I was helpful!

  2. Thanks so much Michelle! It looks like a fun contest and I haven't read horror in a long time. I can't wait!

  3. Hi C.C.! If you're still planning on participating in the read-a-thon, be sure to link up at the sign in post so you will be eligible for all the giveaways. Here's the link:

    I have you in the sign up linky, but not the starting line sign-in linky.

    I draw two participant winners at midnight (CST) each night.

    Hope you're still with us!
