I’m so excited to be kicking off my second year hosting Horror October! I missed it last year (I hosted in 2016) and I’m thrilled to be back! I really missed celebrating my favorite month! Too see the full details and sign up, please see the original Horror October post! This event spans the blog, bookstagram, and twitter so you are more than welcome to participate using whichever platform you prefer! (To be entered into the giveaway though, you must link your blog posts or tag your twitter/IG posts with #HorrorOctober18)
Today also kicks off the first mini challenge, as well as the start of the two week Horror October photo challenge on bookstagram!
Don’t forget that the readathon begins right after the photo challenge ends, on the 15th! The readathon also lasts for two weeks, ending on Sunday the 28th. So get ready to get your spooky reading in!
Here’s the mini challenge schedule again. These can be posted at any time during the week of each respective challenge (Monday to Sunday). You can post on your blog, twitter, or bookstagram; just make sure to use the tag on photos! Deadline for mini challenge entries for the week is each Sunday.
