Okay, so I used to participate in Horror October hosted by Leanne @ Literary Excursion, then when she moved to Oh, the Books! and they group hosted it. I missed out on doing anything at all for October last year, and that makes me very sad indeed!
Oh, the Books! is no longer hosting Horror October, which also makes me sad. The only thing I can find similar is A Fortnight of Fright, hosted by Book Addicts Guide, Books Take You Places, and Tripping Over Books – you can find the deets HERE. Unfortunately, not only did I miss the sign ups, but it’s not really what I was looking for, either. It’s an awesome event, but I desperately want something Horror-ish that lasts ALL October, and isn’t one-post-per-blog specific. I want something ALL ENCOMPASSING! EPIC! OMNIPOTENT! ….okay, sorry. Maybe that’s a little dramatic. But seriously, though, I am CRAVING horror-esque things!
Therefore, I am doing my own version of Horror October! I would absolutely love to make this an annual event, but we will have to see how it goes. If I have enough participation I will bring it back next year!
What it is
For those of you who don’t know what Horror October is, it’s a full month of celebrating Halloween and everything horror! It’s not a readathon or a blog hop or anything. If you want to participate, you can do whatever you like! I personally try to read as many horror books and watch as many horror movies as I can/want, and try to fit in some other spooky themed things as the month goes on as well.
What I have planned
- Some horror book reviews, with special ratings
- A horror movie review (or two)
- Discussion about YA horror books (or lack thereof)
- Discussion about horror movies
- Possibly a Halloween-ish recipe
That’s all I’ve got for now. I’m going to try to come up with some more things, but I am totally open to suggestions!!
Books I have lined up
I’d really love to get to more than that, but we will see!
I don’t know if I’ll even get participation in this, but I’ll still leave a linky open for those who are interested!
