Jess | 3721 comments Welcome to the Halloween Extravaganza !!

Because October is a month that features all of the supernatural creatures that we tend to read about all the time, there are more categories to choose from this month.

Please note, there might be more categories added before Oct, so make sure to check back in before setting your final list. Thanks

The categories for the challenge are listed below, feel free to read just one book, or try to fulfill all of the categories.This challenge will take place throughout the month of October.

Don't forget to let everyone know what book(s) you will be reading and when you finish! Those that finish will have their names added to the Challenge Stats Thread. If you have any questions for Kelley Anne or myself feel free to ask here. Thanks and have fun :)
