Update roundup

I have a few events and readalongs and decided to round them all up into one place for your edification (because I’m just thoughtful like that):

Firstly, two readalongs – just in case you want to jump in:

Readalong of Ashes of Honor (October Daye #6) by Seanan McGuire.  There’s a schedule set up over on Goodreads (link here).  Feel free to jump in – if you’ve already read the first five books and want to jump in with No.6 then wait no longer.

Readalong of Kushiel’s Mercy by Jacqueline Carey.  This series is just so awesome – again, if you’re looking for a little incentive to pick up Kushiel’s Mercy then look no further.  Here’s the Goodreads link

Both of these readalongs get started this weekend so apologies for the short notice but it’s not too late to join in and there’s lots of great bloggers involved with both so no doubt the discussions will be awesome.  Feel free to come and join us.

ripStainless Steel Droppings Readers.Imbibing.Peril (RIP) has a month left so plenty of time for you to read some dark material and submit your link for us all to see!  I’ve read The Family Plot by Cherie Priest (which I thought was excellent, wonderfully creepy and gothic).  I also posted a review for a series called Stranger Things which I loved and I’ve just watched a very scary film called The Visit which I might also review.  In terms of books. I have The Apartment coming up, The Apothecary’s Curse, The Motion of Puppets, Certain Dark Things and The Witches of New York which I think will all fit in with the themes.  What you reading? If you have anything scary, dark, grim, a bit of horror maybe or some good old thriller story then check out the site here.  It’s good to share people.

Finally, over at Lipsyy Lost & Found there is an event that ties in very nicely with the RIP event above.  A celebration of Horror for the month of October.  As part of this event four writers have agreed to take part in a flash fiction event – the title of which will be decided by us.  This is not my event – I’m simply helping to spread the word  So, if you want to vote for your favourite story title then check out the detail here.  I’ve added the poll below so be sure to add your voice.


I hope you’ve seen something you like. 😀

    The poll seems to working spiffingly, thanks Lynn! I can’t wait to collate the results! I’m still hoping for ‘guttural sounds…’ but it’s not looking likely :(. LOL

    Every year I think I should do the RIP event, and I never do! 🙂 Maybe this year? I did run a review of The Apartment today and have a few more horror books I want to read this month.

      Yeah. It’s so easy because you just call over to the review site and post your link.

    You have so many good things going on, Lynn! I look forward to all those dark Halloweenish reviews! 🙂
