Hi friends! I wanted to let everyone know about one of my favorite read-a-thons; Summerween! This is a read-a-thon hosted by Gabby from Gabby Reads and Olivia from Oliviareadsalatte over on youtube. It’s a time to read spooky and thrilling books during the summer months. It takes place July 15th-21st and there are five prompts.
- Read a book in the dark
- Read a book with Halloween colors on the cover
- Read a book with haunt in the title
- Read a slasher
- Bake or make a treat with your spooky read
I try not to over extend myself for read-a-thons because it is very easy to do so but I have 3 books I would like to get to this week.
Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – I am using this one for Halloween colors on the cover, to me this is black, orange purple or green. This is a paranormal horror set in Mexico City and deals with vampires.
One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus – this is for the slasher prompt. I am not a huge fan of slashers but I have had this one on my shelf for a couple of years so I thought this was a good time to get to it plus its YA so might be a little easier to get through
The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates – This one is for Haunt in the title, I bought it awhile ago and started it but never finished. Hopefully I can finish it this week!
Depending on how my reading is going and what my mood is I have a few other hopefuls I would like to get to during this read-a-thon as well.
The Last To Vanish by Megan Miranda – Out 7/26 but I recieved a #gifted influencer copy from LibroFM and I would like to get to it before pub date. This is a thriller about missing woman in a small town.
What Moves The Dead by T. Kingfisher – Pre-ordered but just not sure when my copy will come in.
The Southern Bookclub’s Guide To Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix – Would really love to get to this backlist during this week and if not then at least in July. Pretty sure this is a slasher and has green on the cover.
