Frightful Fall Read-a-thon
I discovered a read-a-thon to do, thanks to a Twitter post from Susan @ West of Mars! I love read-a-thon's! This one is the Frightful Fall Read-a-thon hosted by The True Book Addict over at her Castle Macabre Horror Blog. It actually started yesterday, so I'm a bit late, but I did read yesterday, so subconsciously I think I knew about it! ;) I'm not after prizes anyway, just a motivating reading challenge! September was just a pitiful reading month for me, so I'm hoping between the Frightful Fall and Dewey's Read-a-thon's, and the Rocktober "challenge" that this month will be better!
The Frightful Fall Read-a-thon has only one real requirement (if I'm reading the instructions correctly) and that is that one of your books has to be a scary book. Scary is a relative term here though, so if you're not into horror, then just find some book that has a spooky aspect to it and that should qualify!
Here is my starting line-up:
Vicious Circle (Felix Castor #2) by Mike Carey - listening to this on audiobook, have about 3 hours left of it that I will count for the read-a-thon. It would qualify as a scary series if anyone else is interested. Felix is an exorcist, and always in a LOT of trouble!
What the Librarian Did by Karina Bliss - started this one yesterday evening, and it will be my first read for Rocktober as well.
Fablehaven #4: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary by Brandon Mull - also started yesterday, a fun YA fantasy series that I highly recommend.
How to Read Maya Hieroglyphs by John Montgomery - Reading this for my own non-fiction challenge, I'm at location 744, which I think is about page 97, so that will be my starting point for the read-a-thon.
These should keep me busy for a couple days for sure! I still need to pick my scary read though. Good luck to anyone else who is participating, and remember to use #frightfall on twitter to check out the action and let us know how you're doing!
