Hello my book fiends, I’m pretty excited for this post because I’ve been dreaming of doing something like this for a very long time. I know a lot of you, like me, are lovers of the dark aesthetics, of reading, of fall and creepy things. So, this spooky season get ready for our first ever Halloween Readathon.T his is our first event for the Dark Aesthetics Book Club and I seriously couldn’t be more excited. It’ll be the perfect way to fully immerse ourselves in all the fall, horror, cozy and spooky vibes this fall season.
If you’re more of a visual person, check out my YouTube video for all the deets:
The readathon will be taking place September 1st-October 31st.
Yes, it’s a little long but I wanted it to be that way for a few reasons. Firstly, again to get totally immersed in spooky season it has to last all spooky season, right? Secondly, so we have plenty of time to read as much (or little) as we want and make serious headway in our TBRs. And thirdly, because I want this to be something that everyone can participate in. You can be super ambitions if you want to read a ton of books or you can read at a much more leisurely pace. I know everyone is busy and has different lifestyles so not everyone can read a billion books in a week so I wanted this to be for anyone and everyone who wants to join.
The whole readathon revolves around this Halloween Bingo I created which you can download here.
24 prompts and 2 ways to participate:
OPTION 1: Is to, in true bingo fashion, get 5 in a row. So essentially read 4 books (with the free space), or as many as you want
OPTION 2: Challenge yourself to check off all the spaces. 24 books in two months is a ton so you can find a book that fulfills 2 of the bingo prompts.
If you’re ready to join in on the fun all you have to do is choose an option and join the Dark Aesthetics Book Club Discord. Where we have a pretty awesome community of book and dark aesthetics lovers. Throughout the readathon we’ll have each other to talk about all things fall, Halloween, books, share our TBRs and Readathon goals with each other.
But on top of that if you also perchance were interested in winning a few books, as a way to say thank you and add another fun element I’m also doing a giveaway to win a copy of the December book club read and 1 book of your choosing.
