Halloween Readathon 2017 Wrap-Up!


Hey everyone! I may already have my Christmas tree up, but I still wanted to wrap-up what I read for the 2017 Halloween Readathon hosted by Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews! Sorry this is late, but I’ve been so busy the past few days, that I haven’t had a chance to share with y’all what I read, but I had so much fun participating that I still had to share. So, here we go!




I read the first volume of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which was made up of the first five issues.  This was my first time actually reading a comic book/graphic novel, and it was an interesting experience!  I do think I’ll check out more graphic novels and comic books in the future, but I don’t know if it will be with this series.  I did enjoy it at first, and it was drawn really well, but honestly, it just got too dark and satanic for me.  If I want to read more about Sabrina, I think I’ll stick with the classic Archie comics, which I’ve heard are much more like the TV show.



The very first book I read for this readathon was The Haunting of Hill House.  I did enjoy it, but I didn’t absolutely love it.  I wrote a whole review about it, which you can check out here!


Alongside all my staple, Halloween classics (Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, Tower of Terror, etc.), I watched The Haunting, which was based off The Haunting of Hill House.  It was a pretty good movie, but quite different from the book.  I did October’s Movie Monday about this movie.  Be sure to check it out here!



Then I read The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding.  This book was so perfect for Halloween!  There was so much Halloween atmosphere, and it was just really fun to read about.  The actual story line was really adventurous and well done, too.  I have a review going up for this book tomorrow morning, so please, be sure to check it out then!

I also ended up starting The Halloween Tree, but I was only a little under halfway through, and then Halloween ended, and I lost interest. 🙈  I plan on picking it back up next Halloween, though!

So, in total, I read three books, plus watched a scary movie.  However, if you want to count each comic I read individually, that would bring me up to seven books…😏  So, maybe I completed the readathon challenge?! Maybe…🤔

Thanks so much for reading, and Happy [very late] Halloween! 🎃👻🧙‍♀️🧛‍♂️🦇

ALSO, sidenote: Y’all can look forward to my Countdown to Christmas series coming back next Sunday! 😏 nothing like talking about Christmas on a Halloween post.😂
