When I saw that Charlotte at Wonderfully Bookish was taking part in a Halloween readathon, my first thought was, where do I sign up!  It’s being hosted at Wonderless Reviews.

The rules are…

💀 The read-a-thon is going to run from the 10th October – 31st October.

💀 You can join in at any time until the end of the read-a-thon.

💀 You can read as many or as little books as you want!!!

💀 The books HAVE to be horror, thriller and/or have some kind of supernatural element!

💀 Use the hashtag #HalloweenWR to share your progress on social media!

This is a readathon which is actually simple enough for me to do, woohoo! My TBR (to be read) list is as follows…

After I’ve Gone by Jane Green

Jess meets Lee one morning at the train station, and it’s not long before he sweeps her off her feet and proposes.  However, Jess’ Facebook feed is showing posts from 18 months in the future, as her friends and family mourn her own death… Jess is completely freaked out, especially as she discovers that she’s also had a child.  Are the posts real, a figment of Jess’ imagination, or is something spookier at play?

A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

When Karen crashes her car into a pole and suffers amnesia, she and her husband Tom are distraught to discover the police think she had something to do with a nearby murder.  Karen also thinks she’s being stalked by someone who comes into the house and moves things slightly, such as perfume bottles.  I’m already creeped out by this one…

The Essence of Malice by Ashley Weaver

I’ve written about my love for the Amory Ames series before, and this is the latest novel.  How could I not read a book called ‘The Essence of Malice’ for a Halloween readathon!

The Upstairs Room by Kate Murray-Browne

Eleanor and Richard have just bought their dream home, but all is not as it seems.  The atmosphere in the house is making Eleanor ill and her husband is taking far too much notice of their young, pretty lodger.  Why is the name ‘Emily’ scrawled all over the upstairs room? Marketed as a ghost story, I hope this book lives up to my expectations.  I want creepy and chilling!

I am also reading ‘After I’ve Gone’ as part of  , ‘The Upstairs Room’ for Blogger Book Nook, and I will be reading these books during Cosy Reading Night.

What will you be reading around Halloween?

    I’m thinking about reading There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins on Friday for the read-athon. I love her books and I’m really interested to see what she does in a different genre.

  • Ooh that sounds good, I’ll definitely be picking your brains about it!

  • Food & Baker

    Ooooo all these books sounds so good!! I’m very intrigued with Aftet I’m Gone! I must read that!!

  • Haha thanks Abbey! The stars have aligned for me to take part in a few book groups at once.

  • I know, I’m going to have to be brave!

  • Kate

    Omg number 4 sounds TERRIFYING, I’ve been looking for some spooky books – I find it really hard in the horror genre because I don’t want gory murder mysteries, I like the suspense and intrigue of a ghost story! I’m really looking forward to hearing what you think about these books!

  • Yes, I’m like you, all about the suspense rather than gore. I do find it hard to track down books like that, so I have high expectations for the 4th book!

  • Kate

    A Halloween readathon sounds like a great idea! I’m not usually a big fan of horror but lately I’ve been getting into more and more mystery and thriller novels. These novels are certainly appropriate for Halloween, they sound spooky, especially the last one!! I’ll definitely be adding them to my TBR!

  • I’ll be reviewing these books soon Kate, glad you like the sound of them! I stay clear of proper horror.
