Welcome, horror junkies!
Those of you who are frequent visitors know that I don’t read a lot of adult books, but when I do, horror novels are my genre of choice. And I am always delighted to read and share scary YA books and creepy MG stuff. To quench my taste for all things horrific, I am in my second year of participating in the awesome 2016 Horror Reading Challenge, and I recently met my goal of reading 16 horror books this year (and it’s not even October yet).
So when Tracy of Cornerfolds and Lilyn of Sci-Fi and Scary, the co-hosts of the reading challenge were in the market for a mini-challenge, I suggested a horror movie challenge, which we tweaked to focus on horror films adapted from books rather than just screenplays.
I plan to post my progress here on this blog (since it’s my only one), and I hereby invite and encourage you to make a late entry into the Reading Challenge and a just-in-time entry to the 16 (bookish) Horror Films in October ’16 mini-challenge. Wait, I mean I DARE YOU!
Let’s let Tracy share the nitty-gritty below:
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Halloween! (Okay, honestly I love Christmas most but Halloween is a close second.) This is my second year hosting the Horror Reading Challenge, this year with Lilyn from Sci-Fi and Scary as my co-host! With the help of Michelle @ I Push Books, who came up with this brilliant idea, we are bringing you a brand new Halloween mini-challenge for the month of October!
The goal of this challenge is to watch 16 horror films in the month of October, but there’s a catch! Each of the horror movies you watch for this challenge must be based on a book. Yes, there will be prizes at the end, but our main objective is to have a lot of fun and great discussion! We will be talking about all the movies we watch in our Goodreads discussion group!
