Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon: Time to Sign Up!!!


As scheduled almost a year ago, the Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon is almost here! It's coming to put some scare in your Spring on Monday, April 22 at 12:00am CST through Sunday, April 28 at 11:59pm CST (adjust times according to your time zone). Now don't let the word 'horror' scare you away. You only have to read one scary book during the duration of the read-a-thon. However, that book can be horror, paranormal, thriller, mystery, etc. The rest of the read-a-thon, you can read whatever you want. More horror/scary stuff or just your regular reading repertoire. As always, this is a week long read-a-thon, but you can join in and read whenever it's convenient for you. It's all about being laid back and getting some reading done...with a little bit of scary thrown in.

I will not be hosting any mini-challenges, as we learned from my last few read-a-thons, focusing on the reading rocks. However, if anyone else would like to host a mini-challenge, you are more than welcome...just let me know. If you know someone who would like to donate a prize, or authors, if you would like to promote your book through the read-a-thon, please contact me at truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom. We will also have a few scheduled Twitter chats again. I will announce the times in the starting line post. Our Twitter hashtag is #SpringHorrorRAT

You do not have to have a blog. You can sign up using your Goodreads, Twitter, or Facebook accounts.

If you are planning on joining me (I hope so), please sign up in the linky below. You don't have to do a post now, but if you would like to help me spread the word, that would be great. (Don't forget that this is just the sign-up linky. There will be starting line sign-in and wrap-up linkies during the read-a-thon and doing both is required to be eligible for the giveaway). You can start any time during the week up until Friday night at midnight CST.

Feel free to grab the button at the top of the post.

  1. Thank you for hosting. Am hoping that this jump starts my reading slump that I have been in for months.

  2. Yay! Looking forward to it, Michelle! I already have my audiobook picked it: Breed by Chase Novak. I just need to dig through my TBR pile to find a horror book to read.

  6. I have a non-fiction murder mystery I've been meaning to get to. Do you suppose that counts? I don't have much that is truly scary lying about, I'm too much of a wuss.

    1. That will be fine, Stephanie. Murder mysteries are scary in their own right so it qualifies. =O)

      Thanks for signing up!
