#FrightFall Readathon Master Post

Here we go!  Time to start the #FrightFall Readathon.  This goes for one week, but I'm going to be even more relaxed about it than I usually am with these sort of events.  The one rule is that I must read at least one scary book - which isn't a problem.  I have several sitting on my shelf that will work wonderfully!  I will update this post everyday with my progress....

Monday:  I started this readathon off with a bang - I forgot to bring a book to work to read at lunch!   Thankfully, I am a librarian, and a couple holds I placed came in that morning.  I grabbed I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 and read that - even though it scared me to do so, I kept it together - and will be talking about it with my son once he finishes reading it.  Then, I picked up and read half of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving.  I am kind of familiar with the story, but had never read it!

Tuesday:  Not such a great reading day for me....  I had a ton of stuff to do in the morning, and it was my night to work at the library.  I was completely exhausted by the time I came home, it was all I could do to finish The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  I thought it was going to be scarier than it was!  Oh, well.

Wednesday:  Tonight I had a work thing at night.  So I didn't read as much as I would have liked ... but I did start The Woman in Black by Susan Hill.

Thursday:  Busy night tonight, and I crashed pretty early (um, like at 8:45pm!) but I still got a chunk of The Woman in Black read - getting creepy!  (For real, not like Sleepy Hollow).

Friday:  I actually came home early from work today because I wasn't feeling well.  I never leave work, so that was kind of a big thing.  But it also meant that I really wasn't up to focusing too much on reading.  I did get a few chapters in, but the movie night with my kids was more in line with my head space.

Saturday:  I spent most of the day lounging, napping, doing laundry, and reading.  I finished The Woman in Black - VERY creepy and got half way into Saving Francesca which is for the Teen Book Group at the library that I will be moderating in a couple weeks.

Sunday:  Well, I didn't read a single page today.  Instead, I spent some good time  in the gym and went to a friends house to watch Football.  So no reading, but still a fantastic Sunday!

That pretty much wraps up FrightFall for this year.  I'm really glad that I used this readathon to focus on creepy books that I hadn't read yet!  I hope everyone else enjoyed their radathons as well!

I started with a general overview of a series I love and the Halloween books it features. Mild stuff. As I was sorting through things to read and share I discovered some new to me reads I've been meaning to get to for a while. I plan to post something daily, but not too challenging.
I look forward to finding new scary reads from this read-a-thon.

Can't wait to see what you pick to read. This is my first year to do the #FrightFall read-a-thon so I am getting a lot of cool books to add to my wishlist lol. Have fun!

I'm so glad you joined us for FrightFall. I hope you're enjoying it. Keep up the good scary reading. I'll be interested to hear what you think of Woman in Black.
