I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Time for a Frightfall Reading experience

It's a read-a-thon so you know I'd be there :-) I'm thankful to Melissa for posting her starting line, I was almost last to the party!

Official Time
Monday, September 30 at 12:00am EST
Sunday, October 6 at 11:59pm EST

for me? Sunday, 9 p.m. to Sunday 8:59 p.m.

I missed the sign-up post so when you're ready to start reading, head to the starting line post and sign-up. We want to know what you're reading!

Read-a-Thon Twitter: #FrightFall
Me: @bookdragonslair

This is a week long fest of scary reading (well, at least one scary book anyway).  All you have to do to participate is read at least one horror/scary book.  For the faint-hearted among you, it can be a spooky mystery, a scary thriller, or something classically gothic.  Children's books are also allowed. It's not so much about the quantity of our reading, but the quality, right? But...if this read-a-thon helps you to mark a bunch of books off your TBR pile, so be it! No mini-challenges but there will be a big giveaway at the end.  And we will have a few scheduled Twitter chats again.

Here's the Twitter chat schedule:
  • Wednesday from 7:00 to 8:00pm CST 
  • Friday from 9:00 to 10:00pm CST 
  • Saturday from 9:00 to 10:00pm CST 
  • Sunday from 1:00 to 2:00pm CST 
Dang it, I was reading last night! Let's see if I can remember. . . yes!

Books I'd like to read this week
Last Wool and Testament by Molly MacRae (started before RaT)
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
The Hiding Place by David Bell (this will be my scary book)
Werewolf in the North Woods by Vicki Lewis Thompson
The Arrangement by Mary Balogh
What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries

okay, that's a good starting point
