Readathoning in October

Related imageHalloween is here!!! Okay, only October is here, but it is time to get SPOOKY!!! There are actually a lot of horror-themed or fall-themed, or Halloween-themed readathons happening this month, but I am very sad to announce that I won’t be doing any of them. I have a huge galley pile for October (and November) and I want to do better, so instead of doing themed readathons, I am just going to focus on a couple of readathons which I can use my existing galleys for. Obviously, I am already doing the Seasonal Series readathon – Autumn edition, which has plenty of themed challenges.

If you do want to participate in themed readathons, I would suggest looking up this calendar or this Twitter feed.

Owntober (month-long)

Hosted by Books & Munches, the readathon is for reading books off your physical TBR, which I really really need to do. I am setting a goal to read 5 books off my shelves, this month

TBR: 5 books

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown A Million Worlds with You (Firebird, #3) If You Find Me The Last Star (The 5th Wave, #3) A Thousand Nights (A Thousand Nights, #1)

Magical Readathon – Charms extra credit (Oct 8-14)

After the NEWTs, there is now a short-term readathon to get extra credit in Charms; it has 5 prompts.


  1. Alohomora (Read a book that’s first in a series) – Evenfall
  2. Accio (Read a book that’s top of your TBR) – Wildcard
  3. Incendio (Read a book with ‘fire’ or ‘flame’ in title or series name, or flame on cover) – Firestarter
  4. Rictumsempra (Read a book that ‘tickles you the right way’) – The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
  5. Lumos (Read a book with a light cover) – What If It’s Us

Evenfall (Shadowfire, #1) Wildcard (Warcross, #2) Firestarter (Timekeeper #3) The Coldest Girl in Coldtown What If It's Us

Seasonal Series Readathon (Sep 22 – Dec 20)

This one is a 3 month long readathon with a bingo board, and is being hosted on Twitter.


What readathons are you planning to do this month?

  1. I wasn’t planning to do any of them since I’m expecting to be very very busy this month, but I didn’t even know any of these were happening. I’m going to check them out and keep them in mind anyway though!
