Fright Fall 2016

The first read-a-thon that I will be participating in for October is Fright Fall which is a week long readathon where the only requirement is that you read one scary book.

There are many books that I want to read, but don't have with me because I am borrowing them from the library. Most of them have more than one person waiting to read them as well so, I might not even get them until after October. Here are the books I hope to get at some point this month and the number of people waiting for it as well.

I plan on reading the sequels to those as well, but won't request them until I have started or finished the first book.  I made a list of some books I do have and can read if the other books are not available to me by the time the readathon begins. These may change by the time it starts or during the read-a-thon, but you'll know if that happens once I post my wrap-up.

The first book on my list is the "scary" book. I bought it maybe last year, but haven't had a chance to read it. I don't know why, maybe because it does look like it's going to be pretty scary.
The fact that the word demon is highlighted in the title is creepy enough, but I am also writing this at night and looking at it makes it that much more scary. I have no idea what the book is about, but Pandemonium by Daryl Gregory is eye catching enough to be on this list.

The next book is an e-book I received a while ago and have been waiting for a good time to read it. The cover page alone reminds me of a book I read in high school named Go Ask Alice that I enjoyed so I had to get this book and see what it was all about.

Behind every mean girl... there's a tragedy by Hermione Daguin is a short read which is the best kind of book to pick up during a read-a-thon. It also looks as if I can read it at dark without getting scared about some scary monster.

This next book I picked out randomly for a past read-a-thon, I didn't get it until after the read-a-thon had already ended so I thought I would try to finish it during this read-a-thon. What better way to end summer than by reading a contemporary book like The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. I'm going in blind to all of these books so as the title suggests I have no idea what is going to happen in this book.
I only have these three...four books to read during this week because this last book on my list is pretty long so my time might be taken up by it. And like I already stated there might be books I end up switching or adding into the list. 

For example...
*** I just got Library of Souls so I will be reading that as well during this read-a-thon. I'm glad I got it in time to start off this read-a-thon with the book already in my possession. ***

Just like last time I will do a daily wrap up for this read-a-thon and post it the day after the read-a-thon ends. I hope you are as excited about this month's bookish posts as I am.
