Kat of a Myriad of Books
proudly hesitantly announces…
Every year since I first started my little blog (read: twice, we are fast approaching its two-year anniversary), I've had this idea in the back of my head to feature a bunch of horror and supernatural book reviews and hold a Halloween-themed event. This year, I'm away at college and really missing the array of October traditions back home-- pumpkin pie, creepy corn mazes, SyFy movie marathons, and going trick-or-treating with my cousins--, just the whole Halloween shebang. I'm not really into college parties, so I'd kinda resigned myself to having to basically "skip" the Halloween season this year.
Then it occurred to me a few days ago: how better to celebrate Halloween then by doing a tribute to its themes on my sometimes sadly-neglected blog? The horror genre has long been one of my favorites, so I thought it would be awesome to post some reviews for my favorite books of the genre. And ideas for posts just kept coming: I could feature some creepy covers, rate the best and worst of Stephen King, best literary-inspired Halloween costumes, even feature some horror movies. So I made this button (hardly a work of art, I know) and decided to call it an event. A very loosely-structured, informal, small event, but a blog event nevertheless. Throughout the month of October, I hope to post reviews of tales of the horrific and paranormal, both classic and contemporary, and I'll be featuring a few special posts on the theme of Halloween as well. As usual, the posting schedule will probably be sporadic depending on the intensity levels of my homework and mid-terms this month, but I'll be trying my best to frequent the blogosphere more and more frequently. Can't wait for October 1st!
