Sign up for the Spring into Horror Readathon

It's time to get our scary on! I love this readathon because 1) it's horror and 2) we're six months away from October, FrightFall, and Halloween. Yay!

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
Our other social media:
Discord (this is an invite link. If you're already a member, you should still be able to access the server.)

All links to our social media are also in the sidebar menu.

I am no longer active on Twitter. I'm in the process of removing tweets from all my accounts and making the accounts generic (it is recommended to do this rather than delete the account so someone else can't sign up using the same name). I'm on Mastodon at and Spoutible at @msmwriter

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.
  • 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'm in! Will get my post up on Monday!

  2. Always exciting! Tons of Horror and I think I'll add Grimdark Fantasy too this month.

  3. I’m in! I have never even heard of Mastodon or Spoutible. It’s a shame you don’t use Twitter anymore, but I retired from book blogging a few years ago so I’m not up to date on the new social media platforms! I don’t even use Discord. So I guess I will just use Goodreads for updates and still tweet for anyone who still uses Twitter!

    1. Darlene, be sure to post your updates in our Goodreads group, in the Spring into Horror 2023 thread, so I can interact with you on there. I wasn't happy about Twitter either, but I couldn't in good conscience stay on there anymore.
      Glad you're joining us again. :)

  4. Signed up! Going to use this time to knock off some I Read Horror Year-Round categories!

  5. Signed up! So excited!!
