    Hallo, Hallo —

    Guess who almost forgot about this readathon this year!? I was thankful I saw the tweet s/o tonight as I have several books on my shelf which are perfect fits for this RAT! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to be reading a bit into them tonight to officially get my #FraterfestRAT groove on! Thanks for hosting!!

    Next year Kimberly. I got myself over commited with Blog tours this year.

  3. Marsha Spohn

    I’m in! I read Shifter Romance at my Shifter Haven blog all year long. But… I’ve gotten so behind on keeping up with Paranormal Cozy Mysteries this year, so that’s going to be my main focus. Looking forward to some fun!

    Okay I love Fraterfest!! I loved it as a month long deal (I think it was? or was I just thinking it happened in Oct?!) But I think a week works well for me. I am so stocked up ARCs its not funny. But there are books I’ve been waiting to read all year for this event! โค๏ธ

    • Kimberly

      I hope you sign up. Its always been a short event. I host a month long ARC Challenge in April..perhaps that is what you remember

    I’ve already set aside several audios and ebooks for this event so I thought I would sign up this year. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for hosting again.

    • Kimberly

      Sweet. Yes, supernatural, UF, paranormal, cozy …all of it . You pick the level of scary or other you want. Often times UF has suspensefully and freaky elements. And witches, trolls, shifters, and such are perfect for this time of year!

    You have inspired me to purchase IT by Stephen King. I want to read it prior to Halloween even though I won’t be participating in Fraterfest. IT is a ginormous tome and I like reading at my own pace. I just finished watching the new version of IT the first chapter on Netflix and I loved it.

    • Kimberly

      Aww, I am glad you are reading it. It’s one of my favorites but i am so sad you aren’t joining. Join anyway if you read 300 pages it counts as one book. *winks*

    • Kimberly

      Wahoo!! I am looking forward to doing something fun with the book community too and need to select my own reads ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ooo! I’m going to join. This is one of my most favorite times of year. I just need to round up some good mysteries, thrillers, and horror stories. Any recs?

    • Kimberly

      Yes!! FRATER. Her newest series would be one you could handle. There are two books. The first is The Unblessed Dead.

    I had lots of fun with this readathon last time I participated. I donโ€™t know my October work schedule yet, but Iโ€™ll sign up and try to find something spooky on my shelves!
