Halloween Read-a-thon

untitledAs I missed Frightfall this year through terrible organisation, but can’t miss out on reading some spooky books in October, I am doing a rather last minute sign up to Wonderless Review’s Halloween Read-a-thon.  It sounds like a lot of fun, with some great challenges.

The read-a-thon runs from this Monday coming (10th October) to the end of the month, so plenty of time to read, and people can join at any time – reading as much or as little as they want as long as the stories are horrors, thrillers or have supernatural element.

The challenges are optional but include…

(and no, I didn’t come up with the banners – no where near creative enough – they are Lauren’s but she said we could use (thanks Lauren!))

costume-party

haunted-house

urban-legends

witching-hour

trick-or-treat

all-hallows-eve

I’m normally pretty rubbish at challenges but you never know as you can use the same book for multiple challenges I might do o.k.  Now I just have to decide on my first read.  Wish me luck and head over to Lauren’s blog to see what others are up to.
