Spring into Horror Readathon Wrap-up

by

The Spring into Horror Readathon ended yesterday.

From Seasons of Reading:

Remember, it’s two weeks now…and at the tale end (the finale weekend) will also be Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! Official dates are April 17 through 30, starting at 12am CDT Monday and ending at 11:59pm CDT on Sunday the 30th. Guidelines for the readathon can be found HERE or you can access in the menu at the top of the blog. Any information you need about the readathon can be found there. The hashtag for checking in on social media is #SpringHorror.  You can also check-in and chat at our Facebook group (also can be accessed in the blog menu).

Just remember…the one main “rule” of Spring Into Horror is that you must read ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart). The rest of the week…anything goes! Read more horror, or go in for less heart jolting fare. 😀

I had really hoped to get more reading in, but four books isn’t too bad. I totally lost track of pages and time though.

Books Finished:

Wooing the Wedding Planner by Amber Leigh Williams
The End of the Day by Claire North
Dead Tide by Leighann Dobbs
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde – My “horror” choice

I’m not much of a horror reader, in all honesty, which is why I’m so glad Michelle only says we need to read one scary book and it doesn’t even really have to be that scary. Right now I’m in the middle of The End of the Day by Claire North, which even though it stars the Harbinger of Death and we meet all four riders of the apocalypse isn’t really scary, and Romancing the Wedding Planner by Amber Leigh Williams, also not scary. After I finish those, though, I plan on reading The Picture of Dorian Gray, which will be my horror choice.

I don’t really have any goals, just to make time to read. I’ll keep updates here until I do my wrap-up post. Thanks for hosting the readathon, Michelle!
