Coming into the end of the 1st week of #Scarathlon and I‘m almost finished my 2nd book. It‘s been a bit hard to concentrate right now with both fatigue & brain fog from Covid back with a vengeance & also trying to figure out living in a small house with a toddler again!😱But I am on Pg245 & absolutely loving this, so will hopefully finish it tonight or tomorrow🤞#TeamSlaughter 1pt

#OminousOctober #Day6 #Spices When I first saw this prompt I was stumped. Then I thought “salt is the most widely used spice there is, isn‘t it?” So Yay I do have a book for today! Sorry, heads a bit all over the place, my daughter & 1yr old grandson just moved back in & we‘re feeling a bit cramped right now. Is this the opposite of Empty Nest?🤪 #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 6pts

#ScarathlonDailyPrompts #Day6 #Night What embodies this prompt more than a circus that arrives at midnight and leaves at dawn? This is probably the book I recommend the most when people ask what‘s a really good read. It‘s well written, the story is wonderful, the characters amazing & the setting is lush. What more can you want? #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 6pts

#OminousOctober #Day5 #Candy I couldn‘t find my copy of The Sugar Queen(candy on its cover)and I tore apart my library! So you get the Lollipop Guild instead from Munchkin Land in Oz. I loved these books as a kid, read them over & over when I could find copies in my local library, so I just had to buy the hardcover boxed set a few years ago. Which Oz book is your favourite? 🍭👧🏻🐶🌪 #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 6pts

#ScarathlonDailyPrompts #Day5 #Ghost Another of my NF ghost stories, this is about a haunted house in Brooklyn told by the woman who lived in it for 13yrs. Starting with the feeling of being watched, it escalated to scratching noises, laughter in empty rooms & balls of light bobbing along the ceiling. Along with bad dreams, it gradually became terrifying to live in the house. An example of a pissed off ghost! #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter #6pts

#OminousOctober #Day4 #Ghost I have a small collection of NF about ghosts & hauntings. When I was growing up I lived in house that had a ghost,my dad still lives there. I used to call him Fred & he wasn‘t scary at all, in fact a few times he helped me out(it‘s a long story)So yes, I‘ve always believed in them & I‘ve been on a few ghost tours including The Quarantine Station on Sydney Harbour(absolutely terrifying!) #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 6pts

#ScarathlonDailyPrompts #Day4 #Scream Does this cover count as a scream? It‘s the true story of the Union Screaming House, told by the man that lived there with his family. I‘ve always been fascinated by ghosts, I firmly believe they exist(I‘ve had a few experiences myself)but I don‘t think they‘re like screaming malevolent entities(though I have been in the presence of a seriously pissed off ghost on two occasions) #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 6pts

My current #Scarathlon read is the new Jane Harper. The last apparently of her Aaron Falk books(she‘s said it was always meant to be a trilogy😢)so far it‘s a great read. Set in South Australia for a change(not much is ever set in SA)Falk is helping his friend, Officer Raco from The Dry, find Racos brothers ex wife. And it just gets messier from there! Looking forward to the ending but sad it‘ll be the last sight of Falk. #TeamSlaughter 1pt

So my #20in4 #readathon wasn‘t my best effort, but I still managed over the 20hrs once you add the times together! I got in almost 7hrs of Killing The Legends on Friday before swapping to my first #Scarathlon read then got 85% of another thriller audiobook done before time ran out. So not my best but still not bad! #TeamSlaughter 1pt

#OminousOctober #Day2 #Campfire This is another supernatural book in the strange end of the spectrum. Which I love. It‘s a western about a half Chinese psychopomp who works out of San Fran, laying ghosts to rest and dealing with all sorts of creatures including zombies. She takes a trip out to the Rockies looking for missing young Chinese men & there‘s a scene where she‘s attacked while sitting around a campfire🏕 #TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon 6pts

#ScarathlonDailyPrompts #Day2 #Creature This is one of the best creature books I‘ve read lately. It took me about 4hrs to read, I couldn‘t put it down! I can‘t say much about the creature without giving a lot away, but I can tell you that from the 1st chapter it gives you a sense of dread that doesn‘t let go till the end.

#ScarathlonDailyPrompts #Day1 #Black This is most definitely classed as a horror/crime book. A NF about the catastrophic bushfires of the 2019/2020 summer season in Australia, it‘s a heartbreaking journey through the stories of the small towns & bush destroyed by flames & the millions of animals dead and people who lost everything to ash. It was the headline across the world till Covid arrived. I‘m not sure which I‘d prefer. #TeamSlaughter 6pts

Got in a few more hours of this fascinating audiobook today for the 1st day of the #20in4 #readathon Planning on a few more hours of this(hopefully finishing it tonight)before switching to my first #Scarathlon🎃read! I can‘t believe it‘s October already. The tagged book is full of the background story of the people around these 3 legends before they died & their influence on them. With people like Colenel Parker & Yoko Ono it‘s very intriguing.

Still in the midst of a two day(so far)headache so I‘m doing some more #audiojournaling and finishing off my #scarathlon spreads for all the challenges happening in October. I‘ve gotten a new #bujo for this year, planning on using it just for my Scarathlon spreads for the next few years as all the bingos etc take up so much room in my usual one! Let‘s see how artistic I can get👩🏻‍🎨 #LitsyCrafters #TeamSlaughter

Lizpixie @MatchlessMarie neither am I! I‘m honestly hopeless at drawing, I usually google for an image I like and try and copy it as best as I can then add to it until I like how it looks. But I‘m never happy with how it turns out. I‘m of the “fake it till you make it” school of art😋 1w

My roundup for last weeks #SuperSeptember #readathon I hit pretty much all my goals which I‘m stoked about, all 3 finished books were chunky at 944, 1,012 & 548 pages and I almost hit 46hrs so I‘m happy with that. Only managed 15% of Juniper & Thorn though, it‘s been hard to read the last few days unfortunately. Still, a damn good effort I think. Thanks once more to our fearless leader for all his hard work organising this every month👏👏👏

Bk9 of September & Bk3 of #SuperSeptember #readathon is done! The 2nd book of the Graven Trilogy, it was just as far sweeping & imaginative as the 1st, but was just a tiny bit less cohesive. It‘s hard to describe the universe she‘s built, there‘s multiverses of different properties, more species than I can name & 3 beings with god-like powers.

Bk8 of September & Bk2 of #SuperSeptember #readathon is done. Yes! All 1,012pgs of it🙌The 6th Strike books, it was a bit hard to follow at times with transcripts of 3 simultaneous chats from a game side by side, but once you get used to that it was a pretty good story. I did enjoy Troubled Blood more but this was well worth the read too if only for the relationship between Strike & Robin. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #ChunksterChallenge2022

Lizpixie @Soubhiville @aperfectmjk @Dragon @Beatlefan129 @julesG thank you all for your suggestions!

I managed 3 1/2hrs since midnight of this #chunksterchallenge2022 book for the #SuperSeptember #readathon before crashing with a book on my face on the library chair! Am planning on relocating to bed for a few hrs before resuming said book, hopefully finishing it by tomorrow morning. Or is that too optimistic? Night everyone!👋😴

Andrew65 A good start 👏👏👏 3w

This is my waaaayyyy overly ambitious #watchlist for #Scarathlon2022 for #TeamSlaughter There are so many great possibilities this October, I‘m really looking forward to The School For Good & Evil, Interview With The Vampire(tvseries), Vampire Academy & Wednesday. And The Serpent Queen & The Invitation both look delightfully wicked. And My Best Friends Exorcism. Hell, can‘t wait for them all!

On page 529 of this behemoth already, I‘m loving it so far. Was up till 4.30am last night, tonight looks like another all nighter, I can‘t put it down! Hubs is crook with the flu so I‘ll be able to(hopefully🤞)sleep in tomorrow, starting to get massive black circles under my eyes. Who needs sleep when they have a great book instead? #nosleeptillbookless

Starting on this doorstop of a book next. Guess I‘d better get it read now I have the next book in the series already. It‘s only been sitting on my #MountTBRShelvesOfDoom for two years! 5 chapters in and it‘s captured my attention so that‘s good. Let‘s see how long it takes me to finish its 927pgs!

StaceGhost I didn‘t like this one as much as the two previous books! I‘m interested to hear what you think about it 3w

Bk6 of September is done! I‘m on a roll🙌 This was brilliant, so far every book this month has been fantastic. The 10th Vera novel definitely didn‘t disappoint, the plot was great, the characters all well written & the ending was both a surprise & a shock(I may have cried)I also love how the author brings alive her settings, Northumberland is not a well known part of the UK & I‘ve enjoyed learning more about it. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022

Cinfhen Yay!!! So glad you‘re on a reading roll 🎲🎲 3w
