Welcome to the Fraterfest Readathon!! Grab your books, audios, snacks and let the fun beginning. For the next eleven days, we challenge you to read/listen to as many books as you can. They can be spooky, horror, paranormal, urban, mysteries, thrillers, suspense or cozies. You set your own fear level.

Started in 2012, Fraterfeswas inspired by Rhiannon Frater whose zombies, vampires and necromancers offer thrills and chills.

    I’m not certain which one, but I have a nagging feeling I typed in either The Lost Bones or The Awakening into the books completed twice. Hopefully, you can disregard the extra entry. Sorry about that. 🙁

    This readathon is good for my TBR! I read 2 books from it and started the 3rd!

    Does rereading/relistening count?
    I am reading a cozy mistery now, but also relistening to the In Death series by JD Robb

  4. Nadene

    I have few books on my reading list for this month that would qualify for the readathon. Going to sign up now.

    Ah yea! Fraterfest is finally here! Just in time for the new blog and everything. Very excited and can’t wait to go reading now.

    I am going to keep an eye out for your review on Last House on Needless Street.

    Enjoy your reads, Kimberly!

    Yay! I don’t have to work for the next few days, so I’ll hopefully get lots of reading done. Well, AFTER I clean the house. It’s scary in here, but not in a good way. Thanks for hosting the readathon.
