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

- 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 have some book choices ready. 🙂
I look forward to the fun.
Glad you are joining in the fun!
Looking forward to joining Kim and getting my spook on.
Yay…..glad to have you on board!
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!
That is awesome Meezan!
I am still trying to decide which one I will read for the Fraterfest *smile* Looking forward to the readathon.
I am doing the same Vi. Checking my audio, tbr and galleys to see what fits.
The Book Junkie Reads
My goal will be to get through all of the Brenda Trim’s audiobooks that I have and a few additional cozy mysteries sitting in my TBR…
Midlife Witchery 9 books of the series
Mystical Midlife in Maine 6 books of the series
Hollow Rock Shifters Series 8 books of the series
Twisted Sisters Midlife Maelstrom 2 books of the series
Dark Warrior Alliance 12 books of the series
That is ambitious… best of luck!
I love spooky time!! I hope to get in a few adult spookies but I am also hosting a middle grade spooky readathon on my youtube channel called Hallowtween so all those spookies should count too. 🙂
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!
