Summer's almost over, and you know what that means? That #Screamathon is just around the corner!

I can't believe this will be my 5th year hosting #Screamathon! (or is it my 4th? I've honestly lost track 😆). This year it will stay the same month-long reading challenge, but I'm here to seek feedback from you. What else would YOU like to see from #Screamathon? Bring back the swap? Make it more interactive? Share, and leave your suggestions below!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 🖤😱💜 My fave reading challenge! I liked it when we did the swap. 1y
alisiakae @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I would definitely be willing to consider doing the swap again if there is enough interest! 1y
MoonWitch94 Oh I‘d like to participate! My favorite time if the year to read! 1y

alisiakae @MoonWitch94 Definitely! And your Discovery of Witches buddy read would go nicely with #Screamathon! I plan on participating in that! 1y
KatieDid927 If there‘s a swap, I‘m in! 😈 1y
OndinetheSea I'm excited to participate again this year ! 😊 1y
BookwormAHN Love #Screamathon and would love to see the swap back 👻 1y
alisiakae @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @MoonWitch94 @KatieDid927 @OndinetheSea @BookwormAHN I just posted the sign up! I really wanted to bring back the swap, but I just can‘t commit to the time it would take to organize it right now. 😔 1y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I'm all signed up. That is totally understandable about the swap. They are a lot of work. Thanks so much for hosting again this year. I may or may not have already had my book stack started. Lol. 1y
alisiakae @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 😆 I absolutely have my stack started too! 1y
KatieDid927 No worries at all re: swap. There will be plenty other Halloween swaps, I'm sure! Can't wait! Already have my stack goin'! 1y

My updated tbr pile for #scarathlon and now I‘m jumping into #screamathon! Four of the five are also for #readingeurope2020. Yay! These don‘t include my ebooks and audiobooks.

Tianarose Highly recommend the historian! One of my favourite books ever! 2y
Texreader @Tianarose Isn‘t it the best? It‘s one of mine too. I can‘t remember how many times I‘ve read it. I may be on 5 or 6! 2y

It‘s October 1, which means 🦇#Screamathon 💀 has officially started! Woohoo! 👻🎃

How is everyone‘s first day going! I‘m about 2/3 through My Dark Vanessa, and hope to read a bit more tonight before bed.

So I realized I have 2 hashtags going this year. That was an accident, but either one you use is fine! I‘ll be checking both #Screamathon and #screamathon2020 posts.

Avanders Oooh I‘m so going to go do this.... 2y
Texreader Too late to sign up? What are the rules? 2y

alisiakae @Texreader Not too late! It‘s really low key this year, I‘ll tag you in one of the posts, but pretty much post your TBR pile and use the hashtag every time you read something creepy, spooky, supernatural, witchy, etc this month! 2y
Emilymdxn Hi! I‘ve seen a lot of posts about screamathon and would love to join, but I‘m a bit confused bout the rules. Is it something I can combine with Scarathlon? If you could tag me in a post I‘d be rly grateful! 2y
bthegood @4thhouseontheleft just joined, I think, do I just tag Screamathon and you when I post? Using hours for scarathlon2020. 2y

Here‘s my updated graphic for this year‘s #screamathon. I won‘t get to everything, but I‘m looking forward to some great reads and hopefully I won‘t veer too far off this list. One never knows with me, though. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣🤣

vivastory You have some great books lined up! I got Monster She Wrote for my bday. I'm also hoping to read Inspection soon. Malerman has become a favorite 2y
DGRachel @vivastory Penguin Random House does book recommendations from 3-3:30 EDT on Twitter Monday-Thursday. A couple weeks ago I asked for freezer-worthy horror and they recommended Inspection, which I had on my shelf, so I thought this might be a good year to get to it. 😊 2y

There‘s still time to sign up for #Screamathon!

It‘s the 4th year of Screamathon, and I‘m going back to its roots. This will be a VERY low-key reading challenge. No games, photo challenges. or extras this year, just the opportunity to read Halloweeny books and share with fellow participants!

Rules are simple: post your TBR pile before Oct 1, and use #Screamathon tag to discuss the books you‘re reading!

SamAnne I‘m planning on it! 2y
ChelseaM6010 Just heard about this, but I‘m definitely planning on this! Will share my tbr later today!🙂👻 2y

alisiakae What classifies as a Halloween read? I leave that up to you! Suggestions include: horror, thriller, mystery, paranormal, ghost stories, witchy books, and whatever else you can think of! I will also be bringing back #Friyayintro in October, #Halloweenedition! 👻 🦇🎃 Feel free to post all the other Halloween happiness in your life, too! (edited) 2y

sprainedbrain Yay! I love the #Screamathon! I actually keep a shelf year-round on Goodreads for it so I‘m ready to go. 😂 2y
alisiakae @sprainedbrain I have a GR shelf too! ALthough this year I will be balancing my #Screamathon reads with P&P adaptations. 😃 2y
erzascarletbookgasm Thanks for the tag! I‘ll have to do a bit of searching as I don‘t read a lot of scary books. Only suspenseful and mildly scary!😆 (edited) 2y
alisiakae @erzascarletbookgasm mildly scary is just fine! I usually read more fantasy, witchy, books, with some thriller thrown in. 2y
sprainedbrain @4thhouseontheleft Same! With the P&P&Zombies filling both. 😂 2y

alisiakae @AmyG I won‘t be reading as many books this year, but life is settling down and I‘m looking forward to the fall! 2y
alisiakae @rubyslippersreads Welcome to #screamathon! Last year I added a swap and photo challenge, but I‘m keeping it simple this year. I just love having a community of Littens who love Halloween as much as I do! 2y
Sleepswithbooks @4thhouseontheleft Do books that scare us count or is it just Halloween? I have one on “History‘s Monsters” I‘ve been saving. It‘s nonfiction. 2y
alisiakae @Stacypatrice definitely not just halloween! Anything that gives a halloween vibe for you counts! I am super flexible about what fits! 2y

Instead of writing my essay due tomorrow, what better way to spend my time than watching a slasher horror movie?? For a fan of Halloween and all things spooky, I‘ve seen a surprising few of the original slasher movies. Maybe #scarathlon will change that!

#Screamathon friends....throw some of your rec's my way!

I'm further behind on the #popsugar2019 challenge than I planned on being by October, so I am looking for a few #screamathon worthy books to fill the following prompts:

✨A book with 1 mil.+ ratings on Goodreads (that is not Twilight! 😂)
✨Pop, Sugar, or Challenge in the title
✨a book you see someone reading on TV or in a movie
✨a book with salty, sweet, bitter or spicy in the title

alisiakae Frankenstein is another with 1 mil plus ratings, but I've already read it. 3y
Birdsong28 This is a really good book 3y
SauerPatch The Shining! From the episode in Friends where Rachel finds a copy of it in the Joey‘s freezer because it scared him. 🤣 3y

Boooooks Gilmore girls for the tv one should give loads of options I know Christine, Cujo, Jekyll and Hyde and Rosemary‘s Baby are on the Rory Gilmore reading list 😁 3y
Birdsong28 @4thhouseontheleft and @SauerPatch He also does that with Little Women as its Rachel's favorite book and they swap books and he doesn't like the fact that one of them isn't too well (tried to cover a spoiler lol 😂 ) 3y
alisiakae @Birdsong28 Yeah, I remember Little Women (and Joey's reaction, LOL), but forgot which book was the first freezer book. I 💜Friends. 3y

And here is the #ScreamathonPhotoChallenge! See prior post for #Screamathon reading challenge explanation.

As with all things #Screamathon, you can just participate in the 📷challenge if you want, or ignore it completely and only do the RC. I do ask all RC participants to post their TBR pile at the start of the challenge so you can be entered in the drawing for a Halloween prize!

Repost for @4thhouseontheleft :

The 3rd Annual #Screamathon Reading Challenge is less than a week away! I've had a few questions, here is a quick recap:

☠Anyone can participate, even if you didn't join the swap!
☠If it's spooky to you, it counts! Horror, suspense, mystery, thriller, paranormal, gothic, witchy, and whatever else you think of!
☠A 📷challenge kicks off Oct 1 with your TBR pile! Details coming later today.
⬇️⬇️

LitsyHappenings ☠A random drawing will be held on Halloween! Each post between Oct 1 - Oct 31 counts as one entry for the random drawing. I will have 3 Halloween themed prizes, so you will have 3 chances to win! And remember, there is no minimum (or max) on how many books you have to read for this challenge. Any number counts! (edited) 3y
CollyRae @LitsyHappenings Newbie here. How do we share our TBR pile? And do we post a photo every day coordinating with the theme for that day? 3y
LitsyHappenings @CollyRae You‘d take a picture of your TBR pile or compile pictures you find on the net into, sat, a collage with an app like PicCollage. Then on Litsy, add a “blurb” and go from there — be sure to add the image! And for photo challenges, yes, you‘d post an image that “answers” the theme somehow for that day. If you click on the tag for a photo challenge, you can see how others have approached it — there are many ways. 3y
LitsyHappenings @CollyRae also, welcome! 👋 Have you seen the @LitsyWelcomeWagon yet? (edited) 3y
CollyRae @LitsyHappenings Thank you! These challenges sound so fun! I wish I'd found this app sooner, but I'm so happy to be here now! I did, thank you! 3y

@sprainedbrain It‘s here! 👻🎃🙌🏽

It arrived with a small hole, but in otherwise good shape! Hopefully your box arrives today too.

#screamathon

sprainedbrain Yay! I lined it with tissue paper and I don‘t think anything is small enough to fit through that hole. 🙏🏻 3y
alisiakae @sprainedbrain You can see the tissue paper, so looks fine! I checked the tracking on your 📦 , for some reason it has been lingering in Des Moines for 2 days and shows a delivery date for tomorrow. 3y
sprainedbrain @4thhouseontheleft packages like to hang out in Des Moines. Maybe that‘s where they poke the holes? 😂 I‘m excited!! 3y

alisiakae @ravenlee @martinalove I'll tag you in the original post from a few weeks ago, but it's basically reading anything spooky/paranormal/witchy/thriller/horror, etc and posting about it with the #Screamathon tag! I usually make a stack the last week in September and try to read through the whole stack. (edited) 3y
MartinaLove @4thhouseontheleft It sounds like a lot of fun!!! I love reading these kind of books during September/October/November. I'll participate for sure. 👻 3y

I have been IMPaTIENTLY waiting for two weeks for my local Target to put this Halloween 👻 🕷 tissue paper on the shelves. And it has finally arrived! So I will be sending my #screamathon swap box your way tomorrow @sprainedbrain 🎃 🦇 👻! Not all goodies wrapped and pictured, I may have gone overboard lol. 🧟‍♀️🧙🏼‍♀️💀😂

sprainedbrain Oh wow!! 🎃 I‘m so excited! I have to go back to the post office and get a large box because the medium isn‘t going to cut it. Yours will be in the mail by Monday! 3y
Tamra Love that paper! 3y
LibrarianRyan I hate the lack of Halloween themed wrapping paper. I can never find any. Not even at hallmark. 3y
alisiakae @sprainedbrain I had to do the same thing! @Tamra Thanks! @LibrarianRyan I know! This is the closest I have ever found. 3y
kamoorephoto This is cute! I‘m annoyed I haven‘t seen enough of the Halloween stuff I‘ve wanted to get!!!! I am still waiting on something so I can mail my box to @EH2018 🔪 3y

1. They are not my favorites 😔but I read Dead Boy and liked it. Also I read Pet Sematary and I liked it. I don't know if those counts. 2. Both👌 love them more vampires but I can't live without werewolves 4. I don't know. I'm a chicken when we are talking about movies. But It was ok. 5. 🤔I don't know because I'm pretty flexible but I don't like skittles or similar candies.

1. Coffee 🤣
2. Either- but I like witchy/spooky best
3. Books....I‘m very eclectic with items. Maybe I need ideas of things to collect? I think I‘d like pins.
4. I do not think I have a favorite. But I like creepy creative, like little dead riding hood, zombies, Irish banshees,

alisiakae Just a note, I mention this on the form but wanted to say it here, too, participating in the swap but not the reading challenge is totally okay, and vice versa! It is not required that you do both (although I'd love it if you did!). 3y
AmyG I want to sign up. BUT...we are moving the end of Sept to an apt (then moving to our house in Dec). I won‘t have my PO Box # until middle to end of Aug. can I sign up and let my person know my exact address at that time? Ugh...this move is acrewing up my swaps! 😩 3y
alisiakae @AmyG I‘m okay with that! You‘re a trustworthy sort. 😃 Just make a note of it on your form so I remember. 3y

I am SOOO excited to announce that the #Screamathon reading challenge will be back for the 3rd year in a row....and this year I am adding in a Swap!!

Screamathon Reading Challenge: October 1-31

DGRachel Last year was the first time I focused on spooky books in October and it was so much fun. I've been looking forward to doing it again! I saved the third Aaron Mahnke LORE book just for this. 😍 3y

TheSpineView 🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️🖤🖤 Awesome! 3y
alisiakae @martinalove @ravenlee Here is the initial post, but I will be posting again soon with all the info. It's a very low-key challenge, you choose how much you want to read, there is no minimum, and the genre options are flexible so everyone can adapt to their own reading tastes! For example, I read more witchy books and less horror. Others read horror only. Hope that helps explain it! 3y
MartinaLove Thank you! 3y
