*Halloween Read-a-Thon & TBR*

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! So I was pretty excited when I saw that Lauren @ wonderless reviews is hosting a Halloween Read-a-Thon! This will be a great way for me to knock out some of the horror and paranormal books on my TBR, so I couldn’t pass up participating! For more info and to sign up, check out the Announcement Post.



  • The Halloween Read-a-Thon will run from October 10 – October 31
  • You can join at any time during the Read-a-Thon
  • You can read as many or as little books as you want
  • The books you read MUST be horror, thriller, or have some kind of supernatural element
  • When posting your TBR, link back to the original post so others can join
  • To share your progress on social media, use #HalloweenWR


There will be some fun challenges going on throughout the Read-a-Thon, but it’s not a requirement to participate in any of the challenges! Only if you want to!

A few important things to remember about the challenges…

  • You’re able to use the same book for multiple challenges
  • Feel free to make any changes you want
  • You can use the banners Lauren created!

Alright, so on to my TBR! (Just a heads up… I’m not guaranteeing you that I’ll stick with this TBR, but this is just a general idea of what I’m hoping to read during the Read-a-Thon.)



Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’ve wanted to read this book since before it was even released! So what better opportunity to read it than the Halloween Read-a-Thon? I don’t know about y’all, but that cover looks pretty creepy to me…



Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I meant to get around to reading this book in September, but it’s not gonna happen. So I’ll pick it up in October and use it for the Halloween Read-a-Thon because it’s main page genre is Paranormal… plus it has vampires and witches!



As I Descended by Robin Talley

Another of my highly anticipated reads… perfect for this Read-a-Thon challenge because it’s main page genre is Horror. And that’s awesome, because I had no clue this book was labeled horror… Yay!



Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Another perfect read for this Read-a-Thon… a book I’ve been excited to read and it’s Paranormal with witches! I usually read after sunset anyway, so my plan to read this book for this challenge may change… but for now, Truthwitch it is!



The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

I choose Treat for this challenge… meaning I can choose a book from any genre. I pick Science Fiction! I can’t wait to read The Thousandth Floor and the cover is just so beautiful. I hope it’s as good as I want it to be!



The Diviners by Libba Bray

A horror book that I’ve always wanted to read… so I pick The Diviners as my sixth book! (Hopefully I can read six books within the time frame!)

Well there you have it! This Halloween Read-a-Thon is gonna be tons of fun, so I hope some of you will join in with us! Don’t forget to head over to the announcement post to sign up!


Will you be joining the Halloween Read-a-Thon? Let me know below!

  4. Yay!!! There’s so many books on your TBR that I want to read especially As I Descended and The Diviners. I read Nevernight at the start of the month and it was amazing. I hope you enjoy it! So happy to have you participating ♥

    • I’m really looking forward to Nevernight! And all the others. I was thinking it might be hard to find books to read in the Horror/Supernatural genre, but it was actually quite easy (and fun!) because I have way more books I wanna read in those genres than I first thought. So I’m really excited to participate in the readathon!!

  9. I don’t really like the pressure of read-a-thons as I rarely compile TBRs, let alone get into challenges… But who knows? Maybe I’ll try this one! I don’t like horror books but I have some supernatural/paranormal that I’d like to read 🙂
    Great list!

  11. Oo! This looks like lots of fun, but I’m not sure I’ll have the time for this in October. (October is gonna be a big month for me in blogging and otherwise.) Plus, I’m not sure I have enough books for this. :p Too many fantasy books to read right now. Haha! Hope you have fun with it, though! Looks like it’ll be great!

    Great picks. I really enjoyed both Nevernight and Carry On, even though they’re completely different stories. As I Descended has been on my watchlist for a while, I’ll look forward to seeing what you think of it.
    This readathon is going to be really interesting.

  25. Great TBR Megan! The Diviners sounds so cool, I can’t wait to hear what you think about it. I had seen the cover around but I’d never read the blurb. And As I Descended sounds amazing!! I immediately added it to my TBR.

    I’m so excited for this readathon! And now I’m slightly embarrassed to admit I had NO IDEA “Carry On” was paranormal…whoops…

    I had no clue that Carry On is a paranormal book complete with witches and vampires! Now I’m even more excited to read it! I’m also really excited for Nevernight and Truthwitch! Happy haunted reading and good luck! 😀
