Hello, today I want to talk about the books I plan on reading for Spookathon! Spookathon is a readathon that takes place between October 15th and October 21st. You can find the host announcement videos here and the twitter account here!
The whole point, as the title indicates, is to read spooky books. There are also a few challenges you can try to accomplish as well. They are:
- Read a thriller
- Read a book with purple on the cover
- Read a book not set in the current time period
- Read a book with a spooky word in the title
- Read a book with pictures
Considering I and many other people likely won’t be able to read five books in a week, you can double up on challenges and fulfill multiple with one book.
These are the books I plan on reading:
Monster volumes 1-4 by Naoki Urasawa – These manga will fulfill ‘Read a thriller’, ‘Read a book with pictures’ and volume four will fulfill ‘Read a book with purple on the cover’. I’ve owned these for forever and actually read them about a decade ago. But, I’ve forgotten everything about them, aside from it’s a serial killer psychological thriller. So I’m hoping it’s wonderful.
Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice – This book fulfills ‘Read a book with a spooky word in the title’ and ‘Read a book not set in the current time period’. Again, I’ve had this for forever and read part of it back in high school. From what I remember, I liked it. Hopefully I still will.
And that’s it! Are you participating? Let me know! Happy reading!
