It’s back again and I’m so excited! 😀
Spooktastic Reads is a reading/blogging event hosted by @deargeekplace, @imyril, and @joriestory for 13 days in October leading up to Halloween. For the event, basically you blog, tweet, post, read about spooky things or anything classified as horror. It’s a relaxed event, so you decide how you’ll participate, but much of the event will take place on Twitter. Visit this post for more details.
I’ve been looking forward to this event since last year because I was unable to participate then. However it seems that October is becoming my busy month. I’m already swamped and I don’t tweet much, so I’m pretty sure that come October 19 my participation will be minimal. But I’ve been looking forward to this event, so I will make sure to participate in any way I can; even if I only end up reading just one book for it.
I already have three books I’m currently reading, two of which are buddy reads, so we’ll see how I get on with this TBR.
The reading event is for October 19-31. In that time, I hope to start and complete at least one of these books.
The Fall is the second novel in the Strain trilogy, which I’m really enjoying. Isle of Blood is the third novel in the Monstrumologist series, which I really like so far, and Doctor Sleep is a sequel to The Shining and I’m so curious about it that I’m willing to detour from my plan to read King’s books in publication order.
I also hope to read at least two of these comics.
I enjoyed the first volume of Locke & Key, so it’s about time I tried the second volume. And my copies of The Black Monday Murders and Sandman have been on my shelves for some time now. I’d like to try them to see if they’re really horror stories.
If I manage to blog during this time, I’ll try to do something Halloween-related. But for now, I think all I’ll be doing is just reading.
