2023 FrightFall Readathon - Mid-Event Check-In

A day past birthday was yesterday so I had no time to post this. 

How is it going with the reading? Let me know your progress, or leave a link, in the comments.

In case you missed the posts in the Facebook group/Goodreads group, or the Instagram story, I messed up with the charity giveaway. I did not set the form to "Accepting Responses." Sorry about that. The charity giveaway will now be open until the end of the readathon so be sure to enter on the form here:


The second prize from me is a $5 Amazon e-gift card.

Giveaway Details
This is a readathon participant only giveaway. To be eligible, you must have signed up, participated and added a link to the official readathon wrap-up post at the end of the readathon (I will give everyone until Monday, November 6th at 11:59 pm EST to complete their wrap-ups). We no longer use a linky for wrap-ups. The Google form link on our wrap-up post is where you will enter your info, your wrap-up link, and answer yes/no on whether you want to win a prize or not. I will choose the winner of the above prize by random selection using Winner will be chosen after the wrap-up post deadline (see above).

The Something Wicked Fall read-along of Stephen King's If It Bleeds is still going on. I'll try to have Discussion Three on the third novella in the collection (If It Bleeds) sometime today. That will be posted over at Castle Macabre

This Saturday (10/21) is Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. There is no official sign-up on their website yet, but they have been posting information in their Facebook group and the Goodreads group. Are you planning to participate? I am, and I'm hoping to do some good scary reading ALL day. 

That's it for now. Hope you enjoy the rest of the readathon!

2023 FrightFall Readathon - Let's get scary!

It's time! And once again, the readathon is part of Something Wicked Fall at Castle Macabre. We are doing a read-along of If It Bleeds by Stephen King. We are just finishing the second of the four novella collection so there's still time to join us.

Remember, the one main "rule" of FrightFall is that you must read ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart). The rest of the month? Keep reading scary if you want, or read whichever genre you choose.

I will be offering my usual couple of prizes (see below to enter the charity donation prize).

Don't forget that you can participate even if you don't have a blog. Just link up with your Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (and just post your updates from whichever venue you choose) AND don't forget our Facebook group, Facebook Page, our Goodreads group, and our Instagram...and our Discord. If you have any questions about updates, etc., feel free to ask. I will post a mid-event check in post mid-month so be sure to stop by and leave your progress, or a link, in the comments.

Hashtag across all social media is #FrightFall Feel free to also use #Readathon and #SomethingWickedFall

The linky below is the same one as the sign up linky. If you do a starting line/goal post, just add your link again, but be sure to put "goal post" beside your name, i.e. Michelle/True Book Addict (goal post). Note: If you're just signing up, you can do it here on this post. It's the same linky.

Win a $15 donation to a social justice charity of your choice!

I will make a $15 donation to the winner's choice of a social justice organization, such as the ACLU, Boys and Girls Club, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Amnesty International, It Gets Better, The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, Ukraine relief, or another social justice organization of your choice (food banks, homeless shelters, animal rights/rescue/shelters would also apply), perhaps your local chapter or a local organization. This giveaway is open internationally. Note: I will not donate to any organization that does not believe all are equal, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation.

Charity Giveaway (Google Form):

(I will draw the winner at the end of the first week. Winner must respond within 48 hours or a new winner will be drawn.)
