Frightfall Wrap-Up

I was so very excited to participate in FrightFall this year (hosted by Seasons of Reading). You had to read at least one horror/thriller over the month of October. This is a genre I don't read very often so I was looking forward to challenging myself.

I started the month off strong, finishing Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley in no time.

My next read was Ghostly, a collection of spooky short stories compiled by Audrey Niffenegger. I had actually read quite a few of these stories before, as they were in my much-read copy of Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories. Even so, I didn't finish this compilation :(

Instead, I binge-read Strange the Dreamer, by Laini Taylor. I had some personal stuff go on in my life, and had been brought quite low (okay I'm being quite vague - I had to get one of my beloved pets put down and I'm still struggling with it). I needed something beautiful and meandering to take my mind off real life, and couldn't face any more horror/scary things.

I then capped the month off with reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor. This series is about Angels and Demons, so I felt is was still in theme.

I hope the other FrightFallers had a great month of reading!

    Thanks for joining in on the readathon. I'm glad you enjoyed some of your reads. I still haven't finished Frankenstein. Ugh.
