I am going to Participate in a Halloween Read-a-Thon Hosted by Lauren@ Wonderless Reviews. If you are Interested in Joining Check out the Original post for details.
I’ve been needing a reason to pick up some of my creepier books. I always like to read spooky books during the month of October. Halloween in one of my favourite holidays – I love an excuse to dress up – Even though Halloween isn’t very big in Australia.
The read-a-thon is going to run from the 10th October – 31st October.
You can join in at any time until the end of the read-a-thon.
You can read as many or as little books as you want.
The books have to be horror, thriller and/or have some kind of supernatural element.
