Spring Into Horror Read-A-Thon

And we're at the starting line for the Spring Into Horror Read-A-Thon, hosted by the lovely Michelle (True Book Addict) over at Castle Macabre. I am a little intrepid about this read-a-thon because horror fiction usually gives me nightmares (I know, I know, sometimes my vivid imagination can be a little over-zealous).

My plan for this week is to read Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs. This book seems to be very different from everything else I have read before, and I bought it on a whim a couple of months ago. I am looking forward to having the excuse to read it. I just read the prologue and first chapter. It's looking good so far.

I am also spending this week researching for the fantasy fiction story I am writing, so I will be reading the following books (some of them even have horror elements to them, so it's good timing).

Celtic Gods and Heroes, by Marie-Louise Sjoestedt
British Folk Tales, by Kevin Crossley-Holland
Tales of the Celtic Otherworld, by John Matthews
Tales from the Welsh Hills, by Ellen Pugh
Magicians and Fairies, by Robert Ingpen and Molly Perham

I am really looking forward to this week, and I wish my fellow read-a-thon-ers all the best and happy reading!


  1. I enjoyed Miss Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children and I'm looking forward to the next book. Can't wait to read reviews on some of your Celtic books. Good luck on getting to all of the books on your list!

  2. Okay, I'm losing it. I clicked your link in the linky on Monday, but didn't see this post. So I hope you didn't think that I wasn't planning on welcoming you to another read-a-thon. You have some good reading planned. That looks like some fun research!

    Hope you're enjoying it so far. Maybe I'll 'see' you around Twitter.

    1. That's okay, Michelle, I didn't write the post until after I linked (I had forgotten all about it!!). I am really enjoying this read-a-thon. It's nice to read a genre I don't normally read once in a while.

  3. Thanks, Kate, I'm really enjoying the book so far. It's not as scary as I thought it would be, more creepy than anything else. Thanks for stopping by. I see you are doing REALLY well with this read-a-thon. Well done!
