Mini Challenge: Choose Your Character's Halloween Costume


Welcome to all the readers from the Frightful Fall Read-a-Thon. This is a week-long read-a-thon that takes place from Oct 3 through Oct 9, so if you're not signed up yet, you may still have time! Just hop over to Castle Macabre to sign up! I'm hosting a mini challenge for the read-a-thon so I hope you'll participate! In keeping with the spooky/creepy theme of the read-a-thon, I've decided to go with a Halloween-related challenge.

My mini challenge is for you to choose a character from a book you have read or are reading during this read-a-thon, and pick a Halloween costume for them. What would they want to dress up as for Halloween? A vampire? A superhero? A sexy pirate? Think about the character and what you think they would want to be if they were heading off to a Halloween party.

To be eligible to win the prize for this challenge you must do ALL THREE of the following:
1. Identify the character and the book they appear in.
2. Tell what kind of costume they'd choose.
3. Explain WHY you chose that costume: What is is about the character that makes you think they'd want that type of costume?


For an extra point toward winning the prize, share a picture you've found online that shows what you think the character would look like in their costume (or create your own picture if you're so inclined). NOTE: If you use a found picture, be sure to give credit to the source where you got it.


You can only enter one character per book, but if you read multiple books during the read-a-thon, you can enter a character for each one you read. You can either put all the details in the comments below or post on your blog and leave the link in a comment below.

One participant in this mini-challenge will win a thriller/mystery/horror book of their choice (up to $10). The prize is open Internationally ~ as long as The Book Depository ships to your address.

Good luck and have fun reading!

  2. Great challenge! I choose Riley Bloom from Shimmer by Alyson Noel.

    Riley would choose a cheerleeding costume! I think she would love this if she could be a HIGHSCHOOL cheerleader she longs to be older and circumsatnces in her life dont really support that dream. So Halloween would be a chance for her to live that fantasy.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.
