FrightFall Read-a-Thon + Update + Wrap Up!

Seasons of Reading

As always, the FrightFall Read-a-Thon is hosted by Michelle a.k.a The True Book Addict at her read-a-thon dedicated blog Seasons of Reading!
 
This time, I'm really late, but only with my post & signing up. I've actually started reading on Monday. Anyway, I've been neglecting both my blog and reading my books for the last few months, but I'm trying to get back to it, and yes, I've finally been reading again for the read-a-thon. Not as much as I used to, but one step at a time :) Though in my case, 2 steps at a time, since I'm reading 2 books at the same time. Same old me ;)

What I've been reading?

   
   
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a re-read for me, but the perfect fairytale-like & horror-like read for this read-a-thon, and once again I'm thoroughly enchanted by it! And yes, I'm finally reading H. P. Lovecraft! Wow, this author is awesome. I had no idea what I was missing, and so far, all the stories in this collection are between great & brilliant, so yes, I'm looking forward to finishing both of these books, and it's something that I'm sure I'll do before this read-a-thon is over.
  
 

Update: 


I finished reading both The Ocean at the End of the Lane & The Zombie Stories of H. P. Lovecraft. I also started Trigger Warning: Short Fictions & Disturbances by Neil Gaiman, though I don't think I'll finish it before the read-a-thon is over.
 
  

 

Wrap Up:

 
Ok, so it was a good read-a-thon! I re-read The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman & I read The Zombie Stories of H. P. Lovecraft featuring Herbert West - Reanimator and More! Loved both of course! I also started & read 30% of Neil Gaiman's collection Trigger Warning: Short Fictions & Disturbances!

  1. I'm glad you are able to join us again! Sorry to hear you've been in a rut. It happens. Maybe this read-a-thon will give you the spark you need. Enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon.

  2. Excellent choices. Reading should be done for enjoyment and escape. You have to get lost in a book to get the full benefit.

    Enjoy!
