I’ve been helping the lovely Imogen of Imogen’s Typewriter run Hallowreadathon for a few years now, and since spooky season’s rolled around once again, it’s time to announce this year’s prompts!
1. Fall back into a favourite!
The clocks go back, at least for those of us in the UK, on the 30th so why not use the extra hour for reading? For this prompt, we want you to re-read an old favourite, or perhaps try a new book by a favourite author? We’ll leave that up to you!
2. Read a book with silver on the cover!
The flash of a knife in the killer’s hand, the gleam of the moon on a dark night, the glimmer of a coin in a deep well. Silver surrounds spooky season and in honour of that, we’re pulling the books with silver on the cover down from our shelves. We’ll also accept grey as its slightly less showy sibling.
3. Read two books!
We’re going to run from Saturday the 29th, to Monday the 31st this year. So you have a whole weekend for thrills and chills! And reading two books!
Here’s my TBR for the weekend – I’ve long loved Juliet Marillier’s Daughter of the Forest, so I’m going to be starting her Blackthorn and Grim series with Dreamer’s Pool, and there’s some lovely silver foiling on Juliet E McKenna’s The Thief’s Gamble. Some classic fantasy feels here!
There will be chat and reading sprints all weekend on our Hallowreadathon Twitter, so hop across over there and give us a follow to join in!
