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 2022 Fraterfest Read-a-thon. This year’s event will be held from Friday, October 14th through Sunday, October 24th. There will be spooky challenges and prizes!

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 Fraterfest2022 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 more participants, the better. Grab a book-buddy!
  • Read or listen to qualifying books from Midnight October 14th until 11:59 pm October 24th. (Your Time Zone)
  • Approved Reads/listens: Thrillers, Urban, Paranormal, Cozy, Suspense, Mystery, Historical, Zombies, Horror, Dystopian, Ghosts, Serial Killers, Fantasy, Urban, Science Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic and Supernatural. I don’t care if there is romance. You pick your fear level. Sparkle, bloody… all approved. Novellas and graphic novels count too!

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 (must include international participants). Examples would be gift card, bookmarks, eBook, etc. or ask a publisher/author to sponsor your challenge. You can offer a different prize to international participants.

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

    I did a post a week or so ago but forgot to link it.
    I have some book choices ready. 🙂
    I look forward to the fun.

    How fun!! I signed up. Most of what I read are cozy mysteries, so this aligns perfectly with what I already do. I may challenge myself to read more of them than I normally do during that time frame. Thanks for hosting!

    My grandfather, also an R. Frater, would have loved Fraterfest. He was a huge horror buff. Whenever I see the word Fraterfest, I think of him and get tears in my eyes.

    Happy reading, everyone!
