Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon: We're Wrapped Up #SpringHorrorRAT

Can't believe we're at the end of another read-a-thon! It went by way too fast and I didn't get much reading done unfortunately. I did get started on The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan and it's shaping up to be a right scary read. Delicious!

One note on this time around...the Twitter chats did not work out well this time. I noticed that they have fallen off each time so I'm thinking of retiring the chats. If you'd like to weigh in on this, please leave a comment.

I hope everyone enjoyed Spring into Horror! I'd like to thank everyone who participated and also the authors who generously donated prizes. Be watching for sign-ups in the next couple of months for the High Summer Read-a-Thon, July 21 through July 28. The button is located in the Future Read-a-Thons page and I'll have it in the sidebar soon.

For those of you who might be interested, I'm thinking of hosting two Sit Down and Write in June and one in August. Be watching for details at the Stories Inside blog.

Be sure to add your wrap-up link below and please double check that your starting post is linked in the starting line linky (HERE) so you will be eligible for the giveaway. You have until Tuesday, May 6 at 11:59pm CST to add your wrap-up link. I will draw giveaway winners on Wednesday (please note the new system of drawing winners in the giveaway details on the prize page). Don't forget that there is a free short story for all participants located on the prize page (link in the menu below header). Leave a comment at the prize page if you would like me to send you the download link. Good luck in the giveaway to all!!!

  1. I just finished reading Bram Stoker's "Dracula". This was my second time reading this novel. The first time I read "Dracula" was in the 8th grade (over 10 years ago. Whew!). I think I enjoyed reading it the second time, even though the element of surprise wasn't there anymore. Has anyone else ever read a novel twice?

  2. Absolutely, especially books you read at school, you get more out of a novel the second time :)

  3. Thanks for hosting again :)

    I don't used the twitter chat because my twitter profile is private, and I don't think people can see what I chat about because of that?

    I didn't do as well as I usually do :-(

    The page count was there but the horror was missing. I did start the book, I just didn't start it soon enough to finish. I had to put it down between stories.

    I don't do the twitter chats so I don't think I should have any say in what you do with them.

    THANK YOU for hosting!

    I read lots of novels twice! Some times I'll read the series starting from the beginning when a new book comes out.

  6. Thanks for another great week! Overall, I was pretty happy with my results.

    I made one of the Twitter chats, and completely missed the last one after a crazy day of traveling. I like Twitter chats personally.


    I just got my wrap up posted. I was supper late with this one due to finals. Thanks for hosting. My results weren't too bad.
