I’m a whole week late posting this, and I’m very, very sorry! Throughout the weeks of October I participated in Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews‘ Halloween Readathon (my first ever readathon), and it was great! I completed all 6 books which is amazing for me. It also encouraged me to post more on my new Twitter account – and I loved seeing everybody else’s updates, as well as getting some new creepy recommendations.
Here is my TBR for the readathon. I read 5 books on there, which is pretty good! I made some last minute choices to switch up the last few books, buuuut it worked out okay. Here’s what I ended up reading!
This was the second book I read for the challenge – I didn’t do it in order – and I actually really enjoyed it. I wasn’t convinced that YA had the potential to be scary enough, but this book actually freaked me out.
For the Haunted House category, I read Anna Dressed In Blood. I finished this book last because I kept putting it off. I had high hopes, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d hoped, so I only gave it a mini review.
The Girl On The Train was an amazing book, and I read it first so I could see it in the cinema straight away. The book was – unsurprisingly – far better, but I did like the film! This is my highest rated book from the challenge!
I read most of these books after sunset, but this is the one I chose for the category. I really enjoyed A Darker Shade of Magic, and I’m so glad I finally read it.
For this category, I chose treat. My treat was that this is actually a novella, not a full novel. I chose this for the zombies, and because I hoped it would encourage me to read the next Forest of Hands and Teeth book.
I also gave myself an easy option for this. On my TBR I said I wanted to read Labrynth Lost, but I still don’t own the book and my library doesn’t stock it yet, so I had to choose something else. I picked this up because of a recommendation post (and the fact it’s super cheap), and I quite enjoyed it!
So there’s what I read! Two of them may have been novellas, but I’m really happy that I managed to get through 6 stories in, like, 3 weeks. That’s more than I’ve read in forever, so it also helped with my Goodreads challenge! 😉
Since I’ve been away, I missed everybody else’s wrap-up posts – feel free to link me to yours! 🙂
