Spring into Horror Readathon - Time to sign up!

Spring is right around the corner and you know what that means at Seasons of Reading...time for some horror!

We start at 12:00 am eastern time on April 1st and end at 11:59 pm eastern time on April 30th. (There is a handy link to a time zone converter in the sidebar menu.) I hope you're ready to get your scary on! Guidelines for the readathon can be found HERE or you can access in the sidebar menu. Any information you need about the readathon can be found there. Please do be sure to check the guidelines to make sure you're following along correctly. There are specific rules regarding sign up and wrap up, especially in regards to the giveaway.

The one main "rule" of Spring into Horror is that you must read at least ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart). I hope you will indulge the scary beyond the one book, but that is entirely up to you. It is all about the reading after all.

Our social media hashtag is #SpringHorror We have our outstanding Facebook group and our Facebook Page, and don't forget our Goodreads group and our Instagram. (There are also access tabs in the sidebar menu.)

Some orders of business...
  • Since Goodreads stopped the events feature, it has become a bit more difficult to spread the word, and to obtain prize donations. I would appreciate help in spreading the word. Also, if you know anyone (authors, etc.) who would like to donate a prize, have them message me via the contact form in the sidebar menu. Thank you!
  • Every readathon, I offer a charity donation prize (to a social justice charity) to one winner. This prize is awarded at the beginning of the readathon. Details on how it works are on the guidelines page. I will also be offering another small prize. Hopefully, I will get some prize donations (see above). If I do, I will post the prize page during the first week of the event.
  • We now have a Discord server for Seasons of Reading. You can pop in and chat during our events at any time, or even outside of events. We will not be doing live chats (like Zoom), just typing in the text channels. Introduce yourself in the #general channel, and look for the readathon specific channel for the current readathon. Here's the invite link: The link is also in the sidebar menu.

Grab the button and spread the word! There’s a grab code in the sidebar or download the image at the top of this post.

Any questions at all? Leave me a comment, or send me a message via the contact me link in the sidebar menu.

  1. I've been reading SO MUCH romance lately, I probably need to change it up a bit. lol. Time to fill in some categories for I Read Horror Year-Round!

  2. I used Litsy as URL. Please let me know if I did something wrong. This is my first time to join. I am excited :) ~ Johanna (PageShifter)

    1. You did great! I was able to access your link. Welcome! Glad to have you joining us. :)

  3. Trying diligently to add but Linky won't accept any URL! Not Goodreads or blog.:(
    I hope one of the charities can be Humanitarian aid for Ukraine.

    1. I just tested it and it worked fine. Did you check the box below the form with this text beside it? "Check to accept use/privacy policy"
      It won't let you add a link if you don't check that box. If you did, and it's still not working, my only other suggestion would be to try another browser. Alternatively, paste your link in a comment here, with your name, and I'll add it to the linky for you.

      Yes, the charity donation will be for Ukraine relief. I will try to make the donation (which is $15) with one who is matching donations to Ukraine. I know Google is one.
