October, despite what felt like the start of a slump, was a fantastic reading month for me! 29 books finished, 1 DNF, for 6199 pages!

That brings my year up to 193 books read and 47,775 pages.

For me, October is all about Halloween, fall colors, weather cool enough to enjoy walks, and rainy days staying indoors reading.

Thought I‘d share the #Scarathlon point tracker again, and take this time to answer some FAQ.

☠️ Children‘s books, graphic novels and anything of the like DO count towards points. So if you read a Halloween picture book - that‘s 5 pts!

🧛🏻‍♂️We‘ve decided that TV episodes will not count, due to a matter of scoring. It‘s too hard to track how many episodes everyone watches

🧟‍♂️All books finished during Oct #24B4Monday is worth 2 points!

Jadams1776 I just joined! This seems like the perfect event to get me more involved on Litsy again! 2mo
Clwojick @Jadams1776 yay! Happy to have you with us. It should be a ton of fun... especially if you‘re a Halloween / scary novel lover like me and @TheReadingMermaid 🧟‍♀️🎃👻😈☠️ 2mo

Sarahreadstoomuch And I already have Dracula on my TBR shelf... but Triptych sounds interesting too 2mo
Clwojick @Sarahreadstoomuch 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 2mo
Clwojick @Sarahreadstoomuch You can always read both. Your teams buddy read will be worth 10 points, and the other would still get you 1 point. I‘ll obviously be reading and hosting the #TriptychBuddyRead, but I might still read Dracula as well. 😋 Because there‘s no better time than Halloween, right? 🧛🏻‍♂️ 2mo

Welcome to #TeamSlaughter

The team theme is Mystery, Thrillers & Slashers, so it's time to get those book selections ready. October is so close!

If you have been tagged in this post, you have been sorted into my team for the #Scarathlon event. If you have filled out the form, and have not been tagged, there is a chance we are still waiting to sort you into a team to make things even.

Don't forget to use #TeamSlaughter and tag me in your posts

rsteve388 Yeah Team Slaughter! Lets get this. I am ready First Up: Turn of the Key Ruth Ware 2mo
Clwojick @rsteve OH I think that one is available on audio at my library! I think I'll borrow it. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft Oops! I just filled out the form, was I too late? I'm more a mystery and magic type of reader. 😃 2mo
See All 22 Comments
kezzlou85 Ooh yay how exciting. 2mo
Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft Not at all! We'll have the form open for a while yet, so no worries there. We'll be updating the teams every few days, so keep your eyes open for a tag 😆 2mo
Kappadeemom OMG, TeamSlaughter. Karin Slaughter is my favorite author. It was meant to be! 2mo
Kimberlone When do sign ups close? I am definitely interested in joining in! 2mo
Rissa1 I pulled a few books off the shelf that may be making my list. So excited to be on #TeamSlaughter! 🔪📚 2mo
Clwojick @Kimberlone We‘ll be keeping it open into the beginning of October, so no rush! We‘re updating the teams every few days, and trying to keep the teams even in number, so don‘t worry if you don‘t get tagged immediately after filling out the form. I can tag you in a post with the link to “more info” about the event. Hope you join! It‘s going to be a blast. 2mo
Kimberlone @Clwojick awesome! Sounds like it is going to be super fun :) 2mo
Clwojick @Kappadeemom YES! I‘m looking forward to reading a few more from her during the month of October! I‘ve had Triptych forever, so it was an easy choice for the buddy read. 2mo
Clwojick @Rissa1 I always have a planned stack set aside for these events, then I ALWAYS end up getting distracted and reading whatever I feel in the moment. There‘s just so many good ones out there! 😂📚 2mo
Lizpixie And also, does non fiction about serial killers count? I have a few like Devil In The White City & The Stranger Beside Me on my TBR. 2mo
Clwojick @Lizpixie Yeah, I'd consider true crime to count for sure. It was a real life mystery before they solved it, right? 🤔 (edited) 2mo
kezzlou85 @Lizpixie I do as well. I never thought about that. 2mo
Lizpixie @Clwojick awesome! I think about a third of my #MountTBRStacksOfDoom will fit in this challenge nicely. I‘ve already started digging out multiple choices for each of the prompts. I‘m torn about the teams, I think I‘d fit on both just as easy, Stephen King & Gothic horror are also two of my favourite genres(I think King deserves his own genre, yes?)Cannot wait to get started! @kezzlou85 real life is also full of horror, right!🔪😈 2mo
Clwojick @Lizpixie And if you‘re in the mood for a horror or two, they still count as 1 point! So you don‘t have to write them off your month completely. 🙌🏻 I have a few audiobooks on hold that will probably will come in during the month of October that don‘t fall within the team theme, but I‘m still going to read them for the 1 point. 2mo
Clwojick @Lizpixie Although, I‘m a little competitive, so I‘m going to fuel myself on coffee and audiobook mysteries! And I already made the hubby to agree to watching It:Part 2, and Beetlejuice with me! And the new Addams Family should be out too, I think? 😈 GO #TeamSlaughter ! 2mo
Lizpixie #TeamSlaughter!🙌🔪🔪🔪🔪 2mo
Liatrek Awesome! Going to check my bookshelf now. Are there any books recommend to fit this challenge? 2mo
Clwojick @Liatrek basically anything Mystery, thriller or slasher fits in our team genre. I have a ton of book ideas so I can post some shortly. If you check the #TeamSlaughter hashtag a few people have posted their panned stacks and movies options 2mo

Hello all!
Someone just filled out the #Scarathlon form, but did not add their litsy handle. If you are from IL, USA and recently filled out the form to join, can you please go back and resubmit so we know who you are? We'd love to add you to a team, but we can't do that without knowing your handle. 💝

Thanks!!!!

Do you love the fall season as much as we do?! @TheReadingMermaid and I have been planning this fun Halloween #Scarathlon event for MONTHS, and now it's finally here. It's a little hard to describe in the 451 characters Litsy allots, so here is a document with some more info about the event details. Hope you'll join us! ☠

Scochrane26 Question—what qualifies as a book directly related to Halloween? Dracula? Harry Potter? Does Halloween have to be the main plot point? (edited) 2mo
Avanders I absolutely love this picture. 😍 2mo
See All 6 Comments
Clwojick @Scochrane26 So I'd say the book would be worth 5 points if the plot of the book is about Halloween night, think Hocus Pocus or The Halloween Tree. Dracula, Frankenstein, or books by Stephen King would definitely fall within the “Monsters and Sci-Fi“ theme of #TeamStoker, whereas James Patterson, JP Delaney, and Karin Slaughter would fall within the “Mystery and Thriller“ theme of #TeamSlaughter. Hope that helps. 😃 2mo
