Spookathon 2016 Wrap Up

The 2016 ‘Spookathon’ came to an end on Sunday the 23rd, and I’m happy to say that although I didn’t read all of the books on my TBR I still somehow managed to complete all of the challenges. I’m starting to think perhaps I am just too busy to participate in readathons, because I really struggled to find any extra free time to read throughout the week. Having said that, I found it really fun checking in with people on twitter and Instagram, and seeing how everyone was going. Here’s how I went this year –

Total Pages Read: 669
Total Hours listened: 2hrs 35 minutes
Total Books Completed: 3

A book with a spooky word in the title – Goosebumps: Horror At Camp JellyJam
A book with red on the cover – Sweet Valley University: The Roommate
A 2016 release – Girl Last Seen by Heather Anastasiu and Anne Greenwood Brown
A book containing a creature – Goosebumps: Horror At Camp Jellyjam
A thriller – Girl Last Seen by Heather Anastasiu and Anne Greenwood Brown

Spookathon TBR

The Spookathon has begun! If you’re wondering what the heck a Spookathon is, it’s a week-long readathon where you focus on reading spooky books, that runs from October 17-23. My earlier attempt at a readathon was a spectacular failure, but I am determined to make this one work and complete all of the challenges. Here are the challenges set, and what I’m planning to read for each one –

1. A book with a spooky word in the title – Goosebumps Book #33 The Horror at Camp Jellyjam
2. A book with red on the cover – Sweet Valley University Thriller Edition – The Roommate
3. A 2016 release – Girl Last Seen by Heather Anastasiu and Anne Greenwood Brown
4. A book containing a creature – The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone
5. A Thriller – All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

October TBR

October is approaching! Which means it’s Halloween (in some parts of the world at least), and time to bring out all the spooky books on my TBR shelf. One of my favourite booktubers Lala is co-hosting something called the Spookathon, which is essentially a readathon where you focus on reading “spooky” books. You can watch her video about it here. Keeping this in mind as I’d like to participate, here are the books on my TBR list for the month –

The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone
The Widow by Fiona Barton
Girl Last Seen by Heather Anastasiu and Anne Greenwood Brown
The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey
Goosebumps Book #30 It Came From Beneath The Sink
Goosebumps Book #33 The Horror at Camp Jellyjam
Sweet Valley University (Thriller Edition) The Roommate

I’ll be sure to let you know how I go, once the month is over!
