I’ve decided to join in with #spookathon this year! Spookathon is a readathon hosted by BooksandLala, running between the 15th and 21st October where you read spooky books to fit these five challenges:
1. Read a thriller
2. Read a book with purple on the cover
3. Read a book not set in the current time period
4. Read a book with a spooky word in the title
5. Read a book with pictures
Here is what I shall be reading:
Thriller: The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware
I actually managed to get a signed edition of this – perks of being a bookseller and getting first dibs on new books, hehe. Super excited to read it after seeing that Kayla from BooksandLala enjoyed it. Haven’t read any other Ruth Ware so let’s see how it goes!
Purple book: A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison
Managed to pick up a proof of this at the BA Conference a couple of weeks ago – thanks Simon & Schuster! Unfortunately it’s not out until February 2019 but at least I’ll be able to tell you my thoughts on this one before it comes out! How exciting!
Historical Setting: Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie
Because we can’t do a readathon without a bit of Agatha, can we.
Spooky Word: An Unremarkable Body by Elisa Lodato
This one’s been on my radar for so long I thought I’d use Spookathon as an excuse to get around to it! I’ve heard so many good things!
Book with Pictures: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
Because I don’t read enough graphic novels and this one has a mad scientist in it?
Let me know what you guys are reading! Can’t wait for it to start!
