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!



  1. So far I've read 5 books that lean towards the "scary" in some form or another.

  2. I've been reading some darker fantasy novels so far this month, but I did just start A Dowry of Blood last night. I'm digging it since it's written in a sort-of epistolary style, which is something I always find appealing. I'll probably be reading Hemlock Island after I finish Spells for Forgetting (my other current read). I'm ridiculously excited to get my copy of Two Twisted Crowns tomorrow. One Dark Window was so deliciously creepy that I can't wait to find out what happens next.
