The Screaming | Jack Kilborn
post image

Despite the craziness of my life in 2020, there will be another year of #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! ⬇️

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) 4y
kaysworld1 I'm am in I have been waiting for this for a while 😊 4y
alisiakae @kaysworld1 I‘m glad you‘ll be joining! 👻🎃 4y

Laughterhp Yay! Screamathon! 4y
sprainedbrain Yay! I love the #Screamathon! I actually keep a shelf year-round on Goodreads for it so I‘m ready to go. 😂 4y
alisiakae @sprainedbrain I have a GR shelf too! ALthough this year I will be balancing my #Screamathon reads with P&P adaptations. 😃 4y
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) 4y
alisiakae @erzascarletbookgasm mildly scary is just fine! I usually read more fantasy, witchy, books, with some thriller thrown in. 4y
sprainedbrain @4thhouseontheleft Same! With the P&P&Zombies filling both. 😂 4y
Addison_Reads Yay! This was the first challenge I ever participated in on Litsy and I'm excited it's back this year. 👻 4y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Yay! #Screamathon! Thank you. 😱🖤 4y

mrp27 I've never done Screamathon but I look forward to giving it a go this year!! 4y
BookwormAHN I'm glad it's coming back 🖤 4y
rubyslippersreads This sounds like fun. I‘ve never done it before, but think I‘ll try this year. Like @erzascarletbookgasm it‘ll be mildly scary and suspenseful. 4y
Blueberry 👍🏼 4y
Sleepswithbooks I‘m so excited to play!! I just filled out my questionnaire 🧟‍♀️ 4y
Avanders 🎃👻🎃 yay! It‘s one of the few (only) readathons I feel I can even attempt 😁😁 I‘m in again this year! 🎃🎃🎃 4y
alisiakae @Stacypatrice you might have this confused with #scarathlon, hosted by @Clwojick. #screamathon doesn‘t have a form, it‘s super chill and low-key ☺️ 4y
Clwojick Yay! ♥️♥️ Four years! That‘s awesome 🕷 (edited) 4y
AmyG I will be lucky if I read 2 books...but I will try. Thanks for the tag. Hope all is well. 4y
Sleepswithbooks I did get confused @4thhouseontheleft !!! Screaming, scaring, scalping... I get so overstimulated with excitement 🎃 🧟‍♀️🔪 4y
alisiakae @Stacypatrice 🤣 Last year I did #scarathlon as well as my own RC, you can never have too much Halloween! 4y
alisiakae @Clwojick I‘m glad you‘re doing #scarathlon again too! 4y
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! 4y
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! 4y
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. 4y
alisiakae @Stacypatrice definitely not just halloween! Anything that gives a halloween vibe for you counts! I am super flexible about what fits! 4y
Sleepswithbooks Yayyyyyyyy!!!!! 4y
TheKidUpstairs Yay! Low key challenges like this are my favourites 🎃 4y

mollyrotondo I am definitely going to participate in this! I love horror reads and even created an entire horror #bookspin list for October in order to embrace the season! 4y
Patchshank How do I join in? Do I just post my TBR? 4y
alisiakae @Patchshank Yes! Post a TBR by Oct 1, and then use #Screamathon and tag me whenever you post or review the books you read for the RC! 4y

TheSpineView @4thhouseontheleft How did I miss this!?! 🤦‍♀️ Thanks! Historical what I was looking for! Thanks! 4y
TheSpineView Okay... that should have been... JUST what I was looking for! Hate auto fill!😤 4y

I‘m a little late!!!

1) Sunny 🌞 and then rained!!
2) NO camping!!🙅🏼‍♀️
3) Nina Hill 💛💛
4) sleep late, read, relax 📚💗

1. Today‘s weather was like yesterday‘s weather and every day for months on end—HOT!! It only got up to 93 today (low for us in July) but the heat index was 106. I basically live in a sauna.
2. Cabin, or I wouldn‘t mind trying glamping. Sounds fun!
3. Oh, goodness! I guess Alex Stern from Ninth House. Everything else I‘ve read has been steeped in horror or tragically sad!
4. Sleep late and read, or get up early for a book sale.

1. Beautiful day today, 80s and sunny. Blue sky, fluffy clouds.
2. Not at all.
3. Tagged book, because she was in Paris.
4. Coffee and FoodTV.

1. 110 at home in Tucson. We‘re in Phoenix — 120. 🥵
2. I will reluctantly tent camp. I‘ve preferred it when we can borrow a camper.
3. Alex Claremont-Diaz.
4. Sleep in. If only my children agreed. 😭

1) Hot ? 100°
2) Hmm probably a cabin. Sleeping on the ground hurts my back
3) Eve Dallas — she‘s pretty bad ass
4) Sleep in

🍉 It is absolutely gorgeous here today! Low 80's, plenty of sunshine, and a cool breeze!

🍉 A big NOPE for any kind of camping! 😂

🍉 I would want to be Dany from The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta. I want a tribe of queer witch girls to be friends with! 😁

🍉 My favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning is to sit in bed with a stack of books and tea!

Today‘s weather 🌞 82deg and mostly sunny
I‘ve never tried RV camping, and I‘m not really sure how I feel about it... but double yes to all of the rest though!
Gotta be my girl Tillar for her booming confidence and killer wardrobe... besides, who doesn‘t want their own personal happily ever after?
In the interest of keeping it PG I‘ll say sleep in and slowly sip delicious coffee. 😉
