Spring into Horror Readathon.

Seems I'm always joining things last minute.  When I saw this challenge on Twitter I knew I had to check it out.  Michelle from Castle Macabre has hosted awesome readathons in the past, and also hello, it's Horror.  It's also a good excuse to use the spooky graphic on my blog.

What I love about this readathon is that it's very relaxed.  You can sign up for this weeklong readathon all the way up to Friday night.  We are supposed to also include a list of our books here, um but you see, since I just decided about an hour ago to join I haven't had time to look at my huge, enormous, gigantic TBR pile for some  horror.  I also got a lot of books at the 2012 World Horror Convention which I haven't even unpacked yet!  So, I will start with what I am reading right now and I'll add to this list later.

1. Dust and Decay by Jonathan Maberry.  (Maybe this doesn't even count because I'm halfway throught it, but my goal will be to finish it before I start on any others.)

I also just ordered The Devil All the Time by Donald Ray Pollack for the Horror Aficionados group on Goodreads.  So if that comes in soon, I'll try to get to that as well.

Why don't you join all us Horror and scary book lovers and join the challenge too?  You can do so HERE.

Update: Here are four more books I have chosen for the readathon.  (Yeah right, like I'll be able to get through The Passage.)

I am so glad you signed up! Also, I cannot wait to see all the goodies from the horror convention that you got. I'm am all in a lather over how close we are to BEA time. Fortunately events like this are helping me make some room on my bookshelves! And really, I have to read some Jonathan Maberry! He's on everyone's reading pile.

I'm so glad you're joining us again! I knew you wouldn't be able to resist. ;O) This is going to be an annual thing. My Fall and Spring read-a-thons will be horror focused and Winter and Summer will be just regular. So Spring into Horror is set in stone, so to speak.

Anyway, I like the two books you have listed. I'll check back with you again. Looking forward to seeing what else you select.

Have fun reading!

I hope you get a chance to read Fangboy. I love that little guy. :)

I loved The Passage, but yeah... it's big!

Good luck! I'm so bad at readathons. I keep wanting to read The Passage, but the length is a big deterrent. :)

@Kate - Yes, you need to read Jonathan Maberry. I hope he'll be at BEA. He's so nice.
@Michelle - You're right. I couldn't resist.
@Kimba - Thx for your rec. on The Passage. I really do want to read it. Maybe a readathon is the only way.
@Jen-I think I may read Fangboy right after Dust & Decay.
@Logan-I'm bad at readathons too, but it still doesn't stop me, lol.

The has been on my shelves for a LONG time now. I even let my dad read it first. I still can't believe he didn't like it. I'm still going to read it...someday. ;O)

So what are you reading now? I know you said on twitter that you're having fun. That's good! Keep it up.
