Ghouls & Gals, it is once again time to gather your spooky, paranormal, mysteries, thrillers and bump in the night reads or listens for Caffeinated’s 2023 Fraterfest Readathon. This year’s event will be from Thursday, October 12 through Monday, October 16, 2023. 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 and 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.

  • 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!

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

    My First entry #16 isn’t linked properly, Kimberly, if you’re able to remove it would be great.. sorry! A fav genre, so should be some great reads/listens .. thanks for hosting!

    It’s barely mid-September and I’m already excited with October books 🙂

    First time I’m joining a challenge of yours <3

    I’d be curious but honestly don’t know, if I could do it. I have a true crime collection in book form with lots of stories and could try that haha
