10th Oct

In the distance a wolf howls, an owl shrieks and above you a door creaks. Your heart is racing and that can only mean one thing…. it’s time to kick-off the Fraterfest Readathon! Grab your books and caffeinated beverages as we gear up for chills, thrills, new friendships, and fun challenges.

Grab your flashlights and books and prepare to cozy up as we spend the next six days reading and listens to books in the following genres; Mystery, Horror, Supernatural, Thrillers, Killers, Paranormal, Fantasy, Cozies, Urban, Zombie, Dystopian and more. You choose the fear level. If you need a romance mixed in with your paranormal woo-woo so be it. The idea is to have fun and enjoy the spooky season!

Be sure to take a break or two to enjoy the fun challenges by our Zombie Hosts and update fellow readers on how you are doing. Learn more below:

    Hi Kimberly,
    not sure if my internet was still working when I wrote to you on Twitter that I´ve received the Fraterfest gift card. So, here too. Thank you so much for it and thank you too for hosting the readathon.

    Hi Kimberly,
    I saw your message on Instagram and Twitter about me winning the Fraterfest Insta Challenge. Totally flabbergasted, happy and speechless at the moment. I wrote you an email and hope it will go through.

    Best wishes from Germany

    Hallo, Hallo everyone!

    Somehow it took me all these hours later to find this post! lol I just entered the bookaway – thank you! I am making good strides so far and am tweeting my updates via #fraterfestRAT! So far, I’ve begun a book off my TBR since 2015 (Pretty Baby, Mary Kubica) and have resumed a book which fell onto my unexpected backlogue for 2019 (Forget My Name, J.S. Monroe) – both of which are Contemporary Thrillers!

    Already I feel this year is a better year for me…

      Me too! I’ve got company. They came a week later than expected because of my hubby’s surgery so late night reading for me 🙁

    I’m already having a great time with Fraterfest Kim! I completed the Witch One, and Fraterfest Book Bingo. All of the books I’m reading for the challenge are ebooks., so how do I show by Fraterfest TBR Pile on Instagram? Should I just pick one book to feature from my pile or do several photos?

      Woot…ooh but I should tell you all of the audiobooks will out in the next month and I will have them for review @CaffeinatedPR *winks*

    So excited to be able to do this this year! I already have two books started and hoping I can finish at least three before this is over!
