It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

There are Rules ahem, Guidelines on the blog, just remember...the one main "rule" of FrightFall is that you must read ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart).

(click the title please, my read more link still isn't working {head bang} 
if you know how to fix this, please let me know) 

More info: All times are central standard time (CST) so adjust your time accordingly. Each read-a-thon starts at midnight Monday and ends at 11:59pm on Sunday.

Participants have until 10:00pm CST on the Tuesday after the read-a-thon to post their wrap-up and be eligible for the giveaway.

Last, but not least, I leave you with our read-a-thon credo, a week of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries. So, no pressure...EVER! Enjoy! 


I'm still working on Gothic September and R.I.P reading challenges! I get to start two hours before midnight but have to finish two hours before midnight also and I always forget both.

My current list of books to pick from are:
  • Cover Your Eyes by Mary Burton
  • In Mint Condition - 2013 (short stories)
  • he House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson 
also the Dragonfire series has a good vs. evil vibe to it and can be scary in parts


Goals:
Finish and review Cover Your Eyes . . . read more of In Mint Condition 2013 . . . read a library book (non-scary) . . . read a dragonfire book

Progress:

Yay! So glad you're joining us again. Are you reading Seven Gables for my read-a-long at Castle Macabre? I'm SO behind. I need to get the midway check in posted today. Yikes!
