Halloween Read-Along

Our Halloween Read-Along has started! This year we have chosen to read Carrie by Stephen King for our little read-along, which is basically another excuse for me and Sophie to get some books read that we’ve been meaning to read for a long time! The read-along this year is running from the 26th of October to the 6th of November, which is plenty of time to get such a short book read.

Halloween Read-Along

Last year we hosted a Halloween read-along of Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

HALLOWEEN READ-ALONG DAY SEVEN – MISS PEREGRINES HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN BY RANSOM RIGGS

It’s officially the last day of the Halloween read-along tomorrow! That means I’ve got left just a mere twenty-four hours to finish Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children! Am I going to do it?

HALLOWEEN READ-ALONG DAY FIVE – MISS PEREGRINES HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN BY RANSOM RIGGS

Over the last few days I’ve not had that much productive time to read. Hopefully this is going to change in the next few days, and I will definitely get it done for the deadline day! Because of this, not much has changed in the story since I last wrote a post a few days ago – but that doesn’t mean that I’m not enjoying what is happening at the moment.
