2019 Spooky TBR

Hi my loves since it's October, I thought I would challenge myself to read from the paranormal bookshelf that I have been severely neglecting so far this year.  With so many choices I decided I didn't want to tie myself down to specific books because as we know the second I do that, I rebel and don't follow through so instead I have a few prompts that will aide me in picking a few good reads this month.  This to be read pile has been running since Sept 15 to Nov 7th.

There is also a Samhain WitchAthon taking place from October 24th to the 31st. Here are the prompts:
  •  Samhain is a time for honoring your ancestors... so once again, pick a book that features your heritage.
  •  This Sabbat is a time when the veil is thinnest, pick a book that features communing with the dead... (ghosts or mediumship or necromancy)
  • We are heading into the darkest part of the year... Pick a book that promises to be dark & twisted.
  • Witches often make offerings to spirit guides or gods... Pick a book that involves a pantheon of deities! Sons of Anubis Series by Seressia Glass
  • Dancing round the bonfire is a Samhain tradition... pick a book that has fire on the cover.
  • Many celebrate the Sabbat as Halloween and dress up, post a picture of your costume and tag the readathon!
  • Read Group book Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir ( I won't be doing this as I'm reading only books I own) 
You can follow along on twitter with the hashtag #WitchAThon and the live show after the readathon is on November 1st at 6pm CST
