Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-thon Update #1

My first ever read-a-thon kicked off to a great start; I did almost nothing else but read.

Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-thon is hosted at Kindle Fever and My Shelf Confessions for this weekend. With Halloween coming up, I decided to have a horror/thriller reading list (Though that is not a must for the read-a-thon.)

Reading Stats:
Total Books Read - 1
Total Pages Read - 291

Last book read: The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty (a detailed review coming up shortly) - I did not find the book as horrifying as I thought I would. Although all the obvious horror elements are present, it just doesn't seem like the creepiest of books. I guess the spooky figures and their crazy behaviour just isn't as frightening to read as it is to watch. I haven't seen The Exorcist movie, though, so can't comment on that...

My (Tentative) To-Be-Read List:
The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker
I am Legend by Richard Matheson
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

Happy Reading! ;)

Are you still reading? Keep it up girl if you are! I'm starting Dewey's read-a-thon tomorrow and am very excited! I just went out and bought food supplies. I don't plan on leaving the house for the next 48 hours! Yay reading! I'll do like you and read a lot of horror too!

Vicky - Ya, it's a good book! Thanks for stopping by :)

Mandy - I did keep reading till I couldn't, because my eyes were too swollen and I needed to get some sleep. Now I'm reading again. Hope you enjoy your read-a-thon as much as I'm enjoying this!!
