I'm going to be participating in the Spooky Read Challenge hosted by Becky @ Stories & Sweeties. Here are the deets.
Directly From Stories & Sweeties:
Get out those spooky books!!
So I'm actually going to keep this pretty easy. The challenge will run for the entire month of October. I kept the goal nice and low because I know that we all have tons of books to read this month, spooky or not! Here are the basic details:
♦ Challenge goal: 3 Spooky Reads! This can include Ghosts, Vampires, Witches, Evil Fairies, Demons,...really anything that scares the pants off of you! :D
♦ Make a post about participating in the challenge with a list of book you plan to read. Come back and post a link below; this counts as your first entry toward prizes! Feel free to add the banner to your sidebar!
♦ Come back to this post and add a link to each of your reviews below.
♦ After the end of each week (October 9th, 16th, & 23rd), one winner will be chosen from the posted reviews for a $10 Amazon GC!♦ At the end of the Challenge, 1 lucky winner will be chosen from all those who complete the challenge to receive a Spooky Books gift pack!! I will post a photo of this later on, but it will include 2 Spooky Books (2011 releases), and some other fun Halloween stuff (stationary items, bookmarks, and of course, candy!)
♦ Because I want my international blog friends to be able to play, too (but seriously couldn't afford to send a whole gift pack internationally!), I have some alternate prized for the overseas folks! The weekly prize would be choice of 1 book $10 or under at Book Depository. If the Challenge winner is international, he/she will get to pick $20 in books at Book Depository!
OK, back to me. These are the books that I will be trying to read for this challenge. I may read more spooky paranormal books if I buy more. Hopefully I can stop myself, but I'm not holding my breath.
