I can’t believe this is my third year helping Imogen to host the Hallowreadathon! This casual weekend readathon is a fun way to get some Halloween reading done – it’s my favourite time of year and I love having a way to celebrate the season with some great books. Whether you’re after cosy witchy vibes like me or prefer to get into the scary side of Halloween, we’ve put together some optional prompts to get you started!
1. Trick or Treat!
Our first interactive prompt! We want you to toss a coin for this one; (pumpkin) heads means it’s time to pick up a book that has recently joined your lair, whereas (forked) tails means you have to dig up the unread book that’s been haunting your shelves the longest.
2. Read a book with white on the cover!
Nothing fills me with dread more than a white cover, as someone who tries to keep their books nice and clean. But we were also thinking of ghosts and ghouls, bare bones and the cool quiet moon on a cloudless night. Pick a book with a white cover, spooky or not, to fill this prompt.
3. Read two books!
Three days, two books, one weekend!
Keep an eye out for updates by following the @Hallowreadathon twitter, and heads over to Imogen’s blog for her announcement too. Most of all, remember to keep some reading time free on the 29th – 31st October. I really hope you can join us this year – let me know if you post a TBR, I’d love to see it!
