Frightful Fall Read-a-Thon: Starting


I'm officially starting the Frightful Fall Read-a-Thon. Well, sort of. I actually started at midnight last night since I was already up reading when the clock rolled over to 12:00. I read for an hour (57 pages in What Alice Forgot) and then finally dragged myself to bed. So I've gotten an hour of reading down already. I do have to work today, so this is just a quick post saying that I did start. I will do most of my reading in the evenings this week.

If you're interested in participating in this week-long read-a-thon, go to the sign-in page here.

The one big rule for this read-a-thon is to read at least one book that is scary. So here's what I have planned for the week:

Finish reading:
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty (167 pages left)
Before the Last All Clear by Ray Evans (115 pages left)

Then I'm moving on to my scary reads:
Beyond the Darkness by Leonard D. Hilley II
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

I usually only average one or maybe two books per week, so I'm hoping to do a lot more reading than that during the read-a-thon and get through all of these. If I finish all those, I hope to get to The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen.

And a final note: I'm hosting a mini challenge for this read-a-thon so check it out!

  1. Sounds like fun, but I can't take on any extra stuff right now. Enjoy your books - I'm dying to read Mrs. Peregrine's Home...can't wait to hear what you think.
