There are three readathons happening next week, and I am attempting to take part in all of them! I have been waiting for Spookathon since I joined the bookish community this year. Spookathon is a week long readathon for reading all the thrillers and spooky books. It takes place October 15-21 this year. Then I discovered that Dewey’s 24 Hour readathon is happening on October 20 and the 8 in Boo Mini Readathon is happening October 19-20. Since I can’t decide, I will be attempting to participate in all three readathons and committing to reading as much as possible next week!
The challenges for spookathon are:
1. Read a thriller
2. Read a book with purple on the cover
3. Read a book not set in this time period
4. Read a book with a spooky word in the title
5. Read a book with pictures
So I am doubling up on challenges for Spookathon, but it is really hard for me to read more than two books in a week these days. I will be reading The Wicked Deep (Challenges #2 and #4), Stalking Jack the Ripper (Challenges #3 and #5), and There’s Someone Inside Your House (Challenge #1). All three books are YA, and I usually read YA very quickly. If I find that I can’t read three physical books, then I may listen to A Noise Downstairs to fulfill Challenge #1.
So these are my plans for Spookathon! Most of my reading occurs during the weekend, so the other two readathons will come a perfect time to finish Spookathon out with a bang. Spookathon is my top priority this week though. 8 in Book and/or Dewey’s may not happen depending on my weekend plans, but I do hope to participate in all three readathons next week! I hope you will join me during one of these readathons!
