2024 Spring into Horror Readathon - Time to start!

Time for some scary spring reading! Are you ready?!

Remember, 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.

If you have any questions about how things work, check out the guidelines in the sidebar menu or the sign up post, or you can always leave me a comment (or send me a message via the contact form). 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 (goals or reading goals).

Our social media hashtag is #SpringHorror
Our other social media:
Facebook group
Facebook page
Goodreads group
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.

  • There is a giveaway during every readathon. I offer two prizes. The first prize is a $15 social justice charity donation ( I was doing this at the beginning of the event, but I have now moved it back to the end of the event). The second prize is a $5 Amazon eGift card. Both giveaways are open internationally (for the Amazon gift, wherever Amazon is available). There will be a form on the wrap-up post where you can select which giveaway (one or both) you would like to enter. Details on how the giveaway works are on the Guidelines page.

  • New this year...we are now having one 24-Hour readathon during each month-long event. The Spring into Horror 24-Hour event will be on Saturday, April 27th at 10:00 am EDT. I will be doing most of my updates and check-ins on Discord (invite link to our Discord). It's free to join and it would be cool to have some lively chats over there. There will be a post here when the 24-Hour event starts Full details about the 24-Hour event on the Guidelines page.

  • I will post a mid-event check-in here on the blog.

Welcome back (or welcome to any newbies)! Enjoy the readathon!
