Spookathon

Spookathon is running again this year! This is a pretty big readathon on Booktube and is focused on Halloween and thrillers. I loved taking part in it last year because thrillers aren’t at the top of my TBR normally, so I’m always glad to step out of my comfort zone.

This year it runs from 16th October to the 22nd October.

 

1. read a thriller
2. read a book with a spooky word in the title
3. read a book based on a childhood fear
4. read a book with orange on the cover
5. read a book that has a spooky setting

October TBR

I’m planning on five different readathons for October (I said there was a lot!) and so I have a very, very large TBR for this month. As my TBRs for readathons change quite frequently due to getting new books out of the library and mood, I’ll be putting on this monthly TBR the books I want to read the most out of all my readathon TBRs (which will be posted throughout the month) and the library books I want to get to. For books, I want to finish reading Throne of Glass and Conjuring of Light since they have been on my ‘Currently Reading’ list for over a month.
