BiteOber: a Month Long Reading Challenge in October

I will be doing this seasonal reading challenge starting in October.  I plan to read a lot of gothic, horror and other Halloween-themed books as the holiday approaches. Sign up here.

Every year I host Reading Bites, a year long reading challenge. Well this year, I've been neglecting the books on my TBR so have created a month long challenge to help tackle them called BiteOber.

Halloweentime is the perfect time for reading vampire and werewolf books, right? Okay I know anytime is but Halloween seems extra bite-y. (That sounded way better in my head.)

Update: Well it's also great for zombies and killer clowns and all sorts of monsters that bite so I have decided to expand this reading challenge to include a variety of things that go bump in the night.

You can participate in only the October challenge or sign up for both reading challenges. Note the Reading Bites Challenge is vampire and werewolf specific!

All books read for the month long BiteOber challenge may count towards my year long 2016 Reading Bites Reading Challenge!
