Creature Feature Readathon

A Creature Feature inspired readathon taking place in April.  #CreatureFeatureReadathon

There will be several prompts, reading sprints on twitter, online movie watch parties, and a group book! Each year I host this a new prompt will be added. Due to the thematic nature I didn’t want to just scrap all the prompts every year.

  • You may count a book for more than one prompt if you would like
  • Books do not have to be “creature features” themselves, as long as they fit the prompt
  • If you have any other questions either email me, message the readathon twitter @CFReadathon, or comment below.
