I can’t believe this is the seventh Hallowreadathon! And the second with my lovely co-host Asha! And, for the first time ever, a three-day readathon rather than two days. This is for a couple reasons; Halloween is on a Saturday so we thought it would be nice to have Friday to get excited, Saturday to enjoy the best day of the year, and Sunday to wind down and extend the vibes that little bit longer. Plus, y’all voted for this! Make sure to follow us on Twitter to keep up to date on all that.
So how about some prompts…
1. Read a book featuring an important house!
Of course, we have no idea how the world will be by halloween but personally I’ll be staying home. And how better to make sure my socially-distanced halloween is as scary as possible by reading a book where the house is an important part of the story. This can obviously range from a cosy closed-room mystery, to the kind of gothic horror that will make you jump at every creak of a door and scratch at the window. Is it just a branch in the wind? Or something more nefarious? Curl up under a blanket and read instead of going out to check!
2. Read a book that’s been haunting your TBR!
You know the book. It’s been sat there and every time your eyes pass over it, there’s a shiver up your spine because you know it’s been there for way too long. Maybe you’ve picked it up a couple times and never made it past the prologue. The way this book is haunting your TBR is up to you, this is your push to read it!
3. Read two books!
Despite extending the readathon to three days, we still want it to be a relatively calm experience. It’s been a weird year! Curl up with some cocoa, a cat on your lap, and eat all the candy yourself while you lose yourself in two wonderful stories.
So make sure to join us from the 30th of October to the 1st of November, using the hashtag #hallowreadathon and keep checking back for lots of recommendations to fulfil those prompts. See you then!
