It’s time to kick-off the Fraterfest Readathon! Grab your books and caffeinated beverages as we gear up for chills, thrills and fun challenges.
Over the course of the next six days your mission is to read as many books as you can in the following genres; Mystery, Horror, Supernatural, Thrillers, Killers, Paranormal, Fantasy, Cozies, Urban, Zombie and more. If it screams Fall to you, then enjoy!. Set your own scare level, if you need yours served with a side of romance, it’s ok by me. You’ll also get to take part in some lovely challenges thanks to our Zombie hosts!
You can sign up for the readathon and check the official rules HERE.
Inspired by Rhiannon Frater whose zombies, vampires and now necromancers offer thrills and chills I began #Fraterfest in 2012 before taking a two year break. I am delighted to be hosting again and hope you have a spooktastic time!

Tressa @ Wishful Endings
I didn’t do as well as I’d hoped, but I still did read some suspense books that I needed to get to. It was fun!
I am glad you had fun. I would have like to have read more myself, but that audio was long! LOL At least I got two books off my TBR pile!
Jovita @ Inky Impressions
I’m not participating, but I’m looking forward to visiting blogs of those that are. Have fun. 🙂
Oh fun I’m not going to make my goal but I am giving it the old college try. Life happened again LOL
Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

Jade @ Reading with Jade
This definitely sounds like my kind of challenge Kim! I need to go through my books and see what I have. Dang it, I don’t know how many I can read this weekend though, it’s kind of a busy one. I will do my best though.
Yay. Even one is good 🙂
Okay definitely joining and already read one book! Go me! Going to try my hardest to start and finish Outsiders by King. It will be my first King book since high school so wish me luck that I can not only read it by Tuesday but get through it all (stomach) wise too.
Do I need to sign up anywhere Kim or post on my blog?

Yay!! I hope to get a couple books read at least, so we’ll see! lol I like your suggestions – The Night Sister is a good one, and I want to read Indexing at some point. I have Hunting Annabelle to read/review too but I don’t know if I’ll get to it this week or not.
