(October) Halloween Read-A-Thon TBR!

Halloween Readathon

IT’S FINALLY MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!!! Halloween is my favorite holiday and therefore October is my favorite month that I love to fill with scary movies and books! I missed out on Lauren’s amazing Read-A-Thon last year but I’m joining in on the fun this year!

I may or may not be able to read through all of these because I have ARCs to catch up on but I’m going to try my hardest because I LOVE HORROR BOOKS!

So if you’d like to join the read-a-thon as well and get a chance to win a give-away as well! Just link back to Lauren’s post here!

For this one I’ve decided to go with “Shutter” because I’ve been dying to read this forever and the cover is pretty damn creepy! It’s about a female descendant of Van Helsing who fights both undead monsters as well as ghosts and she has a crew who assists her but one of their ghost hunts goes wrong and they are all infected with a curse.

It sounds so fun!

For this one I’m going with “Mary: The Summoning” because I’ve had it on my TBR for a while and finally need to read it! I’m especially excited to read another book by Hillary Monahan after I LOVED her new book “The Hollow Girl”! This one is basically about a group of teens summoning Bloody Mary and you can imagine how that will go…

Believe it or not I actually don’t have that many horror books on my shelves that AREN’T supernatural in some way or I have already read them! So I decided to go with “Survive The Night” since nothing about it seemed paranormal from the synopsis and I did really like Vega’s other series “The Merciless”.

I always get waaaay more creeped out reading spooky books in the dark which can be good and bad sometimes! I tried picking one of the creepier books on my shelves for this one, “Diary of a Haunting”. The cover is kind of creepy and anything with hauntings is up my alley!

Watching scary movies is seriously one of my favorite parts of October! The sad part is I don’t have anyone who likes to watch them with me except my brother! I always try to have some horror movie marathons though so for this one I’ll go ahead and pick The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 because those are some of my favorites and I know I’ll make time for them!

Definitely “Trick” for me! I’ve been putting off “The Call” for a while now and everyone who has read it seems to really like it so I’m going to try and read that one this month! It’s got some creepy people-eating creatures from Irish mythology called Sidhe and people get “called” into their world and must try and survive.

I may or may not make it to seven books but if I do I’m going to try and read “The Wood” which sounds and looks super creepy but I’m not 100% sure how creepy or supernatural it actually is. Still I want to read it, and I loooove the cover!

    Ahhhh so many of these books are ones I want to read!!! I’m actually thinking of putting Mary on my TBR!! I’ve read Survive The Night and all I’ll say is ….have fun 😎 The Conjuring TERRIFIED me. I’m not even sure why, but like I had to stop watching for a while and come back to it because I was so freaked out πŸ˜‚ I haven’t been game enough to watch the second one hahahaha. So glad you’re able to join in this year, Heather πŸ˜„β€οΈ

      I’m not sure how to interpret having fun with Survive the Night, haha, I suppose I’ll have to read and find out now!
      The Conjuring (both of them) are honestly my favorites because of how much they scared me, I don’t think I’ve been that terrified from a movie in a while! I thought the second one was a lot scarier too just so you know what you’re getting herself into if you watch it, haha!
      I’m excited to be in the Read-a-thon so thank you for hosting it Lauren! πŸ™‚

    The only creepy ones I’m hoping to get to are “Before the Devil Breaks You”, “Lips Touch Three Times”…maybe “Winterspell” πŸ™‚ I also want to read “The Wood” but my library is taking FOREVER to get the actual copies in…first world problems lol

      I hope you can get to them! I haven’t started The Diviners series yet but I’m hoping to eventually here since I have a copy, I adore “Lips Touch: Three Times” so I really hope you enjoy that one especially!
      I’m constantly checking to see if my library has new releases so I definitely understand! First world problems is right, haha! πŸ™‚

    Ooooh, awesome, great list! I actually have Shutter and Mary: The Summoning on my October TBR, too! I really enjoyed The Wood. It has a slightly spooky setting but isn’t scary or anything – it’s more fantasy, but it’s beautiful!

      Thank you! I hope we both love Shutter and Mary because they look the creepiest and they better at least be a little bit creepy! Yeah, I didn’t think The Wood was going to be straight up horror with a gore fest haha but a spooky setting is more of what I was looking for so that’s good to hear and I’m glad you loved it! πŸ™‚

    All your choices sound so good, Heather 🌸
    The Call was really good, I loved it, there was really weird creations and I liked the story. I hope you enjoy it too!

      Thank you so much! Shutter definitely has a super creepy cover, it’s always pretty disturbing to look at.
      I hope these all live up to the creepy expectations and thank you! πŸ™‚
