Spook-a-thon is a read-a-thon hosted by BooksAndLala, Bookerly & Paige’s Pages! It takes place during the month of October from October 16th to October 22nd and features a bunch of fun, but spooky, reading challenges! While Spook-a-thon is taking place during one week in October, I’ll be reading a bunch of horror/thriller novels throughout the entirety of October! This post will highlight my specific Spook-a-thon TBR as well as everything else I hope to try and read this month! To be honest, I’ll probably end up not sticking to the schedule & I will probably end up reading some of these books before or after the designated week, but I’m not going to stress about it. This read-a-thon is going to be a chill one for me.
- Read a thriller
- read a book with a spooky word in the title
- read a book based on a childhood fear
- read a book with orange on the cover
- read a book that has a spooky setting
What I’ll Be Reading:
Read A Thriller
Game by Barry Lyga (I Hunt Killers #2)
I Hunt Killers introduced the world to Jazz, the son of history’s most infamous serial killer, Billy Dent. In an effort to prove murder didn’t run in the family, Jazz teamed with the police in the small town of Lobo’s Nod to solve a deadly case. And now, when a determined New York City detective comes knocking on Jazz’s door asking for help, he can’t say no. The Hat-Dog Killer has the Big Apple–and its police force–running scared. So Jazz and his girlfriend, Connie, hop on a plane to the big city and get swept up in a killer’s murderous game.
Read A Book With A Spooky Word In The Title
Tokyo Ghoul, Vol.1 by Sui Ishida
Shy Ken Kaneki is thrilled to go on a date with the beautiful Rize. But it turns out that she’s only interested in his body—eating it, that is. When a morally questionable rescue transforms him into the first half-human half-Ghoul hybrid, Ken is drawn into the dark and violent world of Ghouls, which exists alongside our own.
Read A Book Based On A Childhood Fear
When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting. As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.
*I wouldn’t say this was a childhood fear, but I’ve always been so terrified that someone could be secretly stalking/spying on me without my knowledge.
Read A Book With Orange On The Cover
Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero
1990. The teen detectives once known as the Blyton Summer Detective Club (of Blyton Hills, a small mining town in the Zoinx River Valley in Oregon) are all grown up and haven’t seen each other since their fateful, final case in 1977. Andy, the tomboy, is twenty-five and on the run, wanted in at least two states. Kerri, one-time kid genius and budding biologist, is bartending in New York, working on a serious drinking problem. At least she’s got Tim, an excitable Weimaraner descended from the original canine member of the team. Nate, the horror nerd, has spent the last thirteen years in and out of mental health institutions, and currently resides in an asylum in Arhkam, Massachusetts. The only friend he still sees is Peter, the handsome jock turned movie star. The problem is, Peter’s been dead for years. The time has come to uncover the source of their nightmares and return to where it all began in 1977. This time, it better not be a man in a mask. The real monsters are waiting.
Read A Book That Has A Spooky Setting
Once a year, scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a three-day camping trip—a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story and a roaring bonfire. But when an unexpected intruder—shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry—stumbles upon their campsite, Tim and the boys are exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror. The human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. An inexplicable horror that spreads faster than fear. A harrowing struggle for survival that will pit the troop against the elements, the infected…and one another.
