Fraterfest 2020

It’s time, dear reader, to gather your spooky, paranormal, mysteries, thrillers and bump in the night reads or listens for Caffeinated’s Fraterfest 2020 Read-a-thon. This year’s event will be held from Thursday, October 15 through Saturday, October 24th. Bwahaha!

You pick your FEAR Level. If a historical murder-mystery raises the hair on the back of your neck… so be it. Yep, cozies, whodunits, and hellhounds allowed!

Official Rules

This event will be low key. I will offer a fun random participant prize. Everyone who completes challenges and takes part in the readathon by finishing at least one book will be eligible.

I don’t care if there is romance mixed in, as I said you pick the fear level. Sparkle, bloody… all approved. Novellas and graphic novels count too!
  • You can combine this with other read-a-thons, and challenges.

During the event there will be mini-challenges with prizes. This is a fun way to meet bloggers and Instagrammers. I am looking for a few Zombie Hosts to post games and offer goodies. If you want to host a challenge, please email me: Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer

Fraterfest was inspired by Rhiannon Frater whose zombies, vampires and necromancers offer thrills and chills, I began #Fraterfest in 2012. I hope you have a spooktastic time!

    I’m signing up now, and this will be my st time doing this readathon. I was wondering if rereads counted, I really have a problem connecting to new stuff this year 🙂

    • Kimberly

      Not at all Vi. I only closed the reminder form. It sent out an email on Thursday to those already linked up that the RAT begins this Thursday.

    I usually try to force myself into reading something truly scary and then fail. This year, I’m going to plan on either suspense or urban fantasy – something I won’t be too sacred too read lol!

    Side note… It’s not letting me sign up. Says something is wrong with my link? I’ll keep trying.

    I do the holiday readathon every year but I think this will be my first year doing Fraterfest!

        Lol just thinking about it gives me goosebumps. I’m a scaredy-cat so I think I will be reading what is on my Kindle with Pawsitively Cursed by Melissa Erin Jackson or Shades of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost …maybe. That’s if I can’t find a copy of Kill Creek by Scott Thomas. I really want to read that one. I’ve heard it was good so IDK.
