Spookathon Wrap Up

I do love Spookathon, it’s one of those readathons where lots of people take part and it’s always fun to see other people’s TBRs. They never match up to mine, but it’s fun to get ideas!

I felt like I did really well this Spookathon, though I didn’t stick to my TBR, I did get all of the challenges done.

  • read a thriller

You
You is a creepy thriller of a book which I did really enjoy, although sometimes I felt like it was a little long and it dragged a bit. However, I have been meaning to get to this book for a while so I’m glad I got around to it!

  • read a book with a spooky word in the title

Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance

Deadly Dance was a complete impulse buy. I’ve been meaning to read the Agatha Raisin books for a while since I enjoy M.C. Beaton’s writing. Didn’t particularly like the characters, plot wasn’t anything wonderful but, as always, Beaton’s writing meant I finished the book and I finished it quickly.

  • read a book based on a childhood fear

Frozen Charlotte
While zombies were a childhood fear of mine, I do remember having recurring nightmares of being trapped in my school and being chased by a dark shadow. Frozen Charlotte has an old schoolhouse and creepy haunted dolls – it was a perfect haunting book and very easy to read as well.

  • read a book with orange on the cover

Why Did You Lie?
Why Did You Lie? is an Icelandic thriller which follows the POVs of three different characters. It took me a while to get into but I soon found myself caught up in it and the ending blew me away.

  • read a book that has a spooky setting

Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1)
Woah, I actually read a book on my TBR. Every Heart a Doorway has been on my TBR for ages and I managed to get a cheap ebook copy (no way was I paying £8 on a ebook version of a novella, I don’t care how many rave reviews it has) a while back. This book was enjoyable and fun, but it didn’t live up to the hype unfortunately.

 
This was a fun readathon and I got to a lot of books I’ve had on my TBR for a while, as well as getting through some of my library books. Did any of you guys take part in the readathon? How did you do? Let me know in the comments!
