Spookathon Wrap-up

Hey guys! So I am excited to announce that I ended up participating in Spookathon last week. I honestly didn’t think I was going to. I have been in a bit of a slump as of late. I haven’t been reading as much. I ended up finishing a book on the second day and then picked up another one so I thought I would try to pick books that fit the prompts. So I’m really happy that I ended up making it work. Spookathon is one of my favorite readathons so I was happy this ended up working out. So let’s dive in to see what I read.

Spookathon is a readathon hosted by Kayla @ BooksandLala. Spookathon was from October 14th to October 20th. I ended up extending it to October 21st since I ended up finishing my last book then.

Here are the prompts:

1. Read a thrillerMy Favorite Daughter By Kaira Rouda

2. Read a book with red on the coverAll the Beautiful Lies By Peter Swanson

3. Read a book with a spooky settingSmall Spaces By Katherine Arden

4. Read a book with a spooky word in the titleSmall Spaces By Katherine Arden

5. Read something outside your comfort zone (genre, tone, format, author etc.)Poet X By Elizabeth Acevedo


So overall I feel this ended up being a decent readathon. I ended up really liking two of these books and then disliked two of these books. I ended up picking up Poet X which wasn’t really on my radar and not something I normally read and I really enjoyed it. So I feel that’s a win in itself. Next time I hope to prepare myself more and actually have my books picked out before the readathon starts. At the same time I’m just happy I ended up reading four books so close together. It’s been such a long since I did that.

    1. I kept telling myself I was going to read it for the longest time and finally picked it up. I wasn’t a fan but it seemed like everyone else enjoyed it. I know it’s a bit hit if you like unlikable narrators.
