Sixteen Bookish Horror Films Mini-Challenge!


Welcome, horror junkies!

From Tracy: It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Halloween! (Okay, honestly I love Christmas most but Halloween is a close second.) This is my second year hosting the Horror Reading Challenge, this year with Lilyn from Sci-Fi and Scary as my co-host! With the help of Michelle @ I Push Books, who came up with this brilliant idea, we are bringing you a brand new Halloween mini-challenge for the month of October!

From Lilyn: Halloween is my favorite holiday! Cool costumes, lots of candy, even more candy now that I have a kid and an excuse to go door to door begging. I mean, I normally don’t mind begging, but you should see the looks I get. ((Its the jiggly bits. There’s only so much you can do with ace bandages and an innocent look.)) Anyways, y’all know I love horror movies, so I’m super excited for this bookish horror films mini-challenge.  So, please participate!

The goal of this challenge is to watch 16 horror films in the month of October, but there’s a catch! Each of the horror movies you watch for this challenge must be based on a book. (Do try to be a little bit more creative than watching every Stephen King movie in existence 😉 )Yes, there will be prizes at the end, but our main objective is to have a lot of fun and great discussion! We will be talking about all the movies we watch in our Goodreads discussion group!
