This is my first read-a-thon/blog event, so I am VERY nervous. It'd be nice to see a few familiar faces!! Join.... if you dare ;) 


  1. Good luck with the challenge! KEEP US UPDATED ON THE CREEPINESS OF THE BOOKS.

    I'm tempted to do this, but the pressure of readathons always makes me antsy lol.

  2. I hope your read a thon goes well! I don't really have any spooky books, but I do have plenty of arcs to read, so I don't think I'll be participating, but it does look like fun. :) Oh the Immortal Rules... I can be bribed, but no I have to read arcs first.

  3. WOW - I was just browsing through & stumbled upon your lovely blog - It looks gorgeous and it has interesting posts that I can relate to. I have to check out these new reads! I'm now following you via gfc, Hope you check out my blog? keep in touch love x

  5. Ohh, this looks like such fun! I wish I was able to participate, but unfortunately I have review books to catch up on, and not all of them fit the criteria. Oh well, maybe next year? I hope you and all of the participants have a great read-a-thon! :)

  6. Nice post!
