Last year, we indulged Mandy’s need for the spooky reads and created a Nightmare Before Christmas-themed read-a-thon (hello, Nightmare Before BPR aka Spooky September!), and we are bringing it BACK this year. Get ready to pack your September with all the spooks. *the official name is Nightmare Before BPR but we know it’s wordy, so y’all can call it Spooky September too.

    1. Thank you!! With readathons, I’ve definitely seen a few that require different things and do require one prompt per bingo. That’s how I’m trying to do this year to push myself to do more. However, since there is a lot of prompts, I say you can double up on prompts if you wish!!

  1. I’m on the verge of tears because this is just so cute and I’ve never wanted to join a readathon more in my life, but unfortunately I don’t even think my university schedule will allow for me to read anything this semester! 😦

    I think I’ll still try to join! If I do, I’ll make a post to let you know! 😌 I’m determined to read at least one spooky book this year! (PS: Can I call it “Spooky-tember”, just for myself? Because that’s what it is in my mind, haha!)

  2. I love everything fall, so this seems like fun, but I don’t usually read spooky-ish books? Hmm, maybe I can alter these a little to fit what I would read? Can you double up with prompts?

    This is so exciting!

    1. Oooooh yes! And yes! I definitely have altered a few things to fit too in the past (lol and I created it, lol), but I’ve used fantasy and even contemporary for a few prompts that fit a sort of spookyish feel. I plan on only using one for each prompt, but since there are so many prompts, I definitely think you can double up for some of them.. πŸ™‚

  3. It is already Halloween in my heart. I got ridiculously excited a few weeks ago when I saw the Halloween decorations at Michael’s. I am already planning in decorating our house soon…very soon. πŸ™‚

  4. I’d definitely be joining. This sounds so cute, and it’s enough to get in the Halloween spirit, so I could just quit procrastinating on a series I want to finish and stop saying, ‘maybe next time’ whenever I see the books at the library.
