2021 Fraterfest

Dear Reader, it is once again time to gather your spooky, paranormal, mysteries, thrillers and bump in the night reads or listens for Caffeinated’s Fraterfest 2021 Read-a-thon. This year’s event will be held from Friday, October 15 through Monday, October 25th. That’s eleven days of spooktacular fun. 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!

Fraterfeswas inspired by Rhiannon Frater whose zombies, vampires and necromancers offer thrills and chills, I began #Fraterfest in 2012.

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.

  • Link-up (You can link up using your blog, Goodreads bookshelf labeled Fraterfest2021 or link a social media account) A start up post is not required.
  • Spread the Word. Share the post and invite your friends to join. Grab graphic and or share button for your blog or post to your social media sites. The participants the better. Grab a book-buddy!

Host a Spooktacular Challenge

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.

Challenge Ideas: Spooky Cover Scavenger Hunt, Bingo, Crossword Puzzle, Book Spine Poem or invent your own. All challenges most offer a small token International Prize. Examples would be gift card, bookmarks, eBook or ask a publisher/author to sponsor your challenge.

If you want to host a challenge, please email me: Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer

    I love seeing you doing this for another year, so much fun. I have been in the mood to read more spooky themed books so I might just have to join up.

      Thank you Carla. Mysteries and thrillers are allowed, even cozie mysteries…if you change your mind.
