The Creature Feature readathon is back!
*cue maniacal laughter*
The readathon officially begins April 1st and will run the entire month. Like the first time, there will be several prompts, online movie parties, and a group book! Be sure to use the hashtag #CreatureFeatureReadathon so I can see and share your posts, videos, TBRs, etc.
Voting for the group book can be found on the readathon twitter. The book will be announced on March 8th both on twitter and in my personal TBR blog post. You don’t have to read the group book but I will be posting discussion questions for it at the end of April both on the blog and twitter.
- You can of course use a book for more multiple prompts prompt if you would like.
- Books do not have to be “creature features” themselves, as long as they fit the prompt
- There are no minimum page counts unless you want to set one for yourself.
Due to the thematic nature I didn’t want to just scrap all the prompts every year. So I decided every year I host this a new prompt will be added.
