Hey Guys! So recently I have decided to stop doing monthly TBRs and participating in readathons. However, this month there are a couple of readathons that I really wanted to participate in. I will be participating in the Hocus Pocus readathon which takes place from the 1st of October to the 13th. I am also participating in A very Merry Burton Halloween which takes place during the whole month of October. Since these readathons do overlap so do some of the books I choose to read.
Hocus Pocus Readathon
For this readathon you get to choose a team. The teams are team Sanderson Sisters, team Undead and team Trick or Treaters. Each team also have different prompts along with strengths and weaknesses. I am part of Team Sanderson Sisters which means that my strength is that I can add 5 points to any of my prompts. My weakness is that I must read a young adult or middle grade book.
- Potions, Spells, and Enchantments. Read a book with a witchy main
- character – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK. Rowling
- The Sanderson Sisters have risen. Read a book with a female protagonist – Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
- The magic book is calling to you. Read a book that is spellbindingly atmospheric – The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
- The Burning Rain of Death! Read a book that frightens you – Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
- Master Satan is pleased with you. Read a book with a powerful villain – The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Work together with your team to take down those horrible children and become immortal. Read the group book – Hocus Pocus and the all new Sequel by A.W. Jantha
- Celebrate your victory by watching Hocus Pocus
A Very Merry Burton Halloween
This readathon is based on some of Tim Burton’s movies. It uses 9 of Tim Burton’s Halloween movies to provide prompts. I have chosen books for every prompt and most of them overlap with the Hocus Pocus book choices. Also this readathon allows us to double up prompts for the same book.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas. Book with number in title – Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Corpse Bride. Read a mystery, thriller or romance – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
- Beetlejuice. A book within a trilogy – Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Sleepy Hollow. A book you lost your head over (hyped) – Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
- Mars Attack! A sci-fi – Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Read anything you desire – The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
- Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Book with revenge – Hocus Pocus and the all new sequel by A.W. Jantha
- Alice in Wonderland. Book with portal to another world – Coraline by Neil Gaiman
- Dark Shadows. Book featuring vampires – City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
