October 17th – October 31st, 2013
October is upon us and it’s time for one of my favorite times of the year: HALLOWEEN. Last year, Alyssa (Books Take You Places) and I really bonded over our mutual love of Halloween and came up with the idea for A FORTNIGHT OF FRIGHT: a two-week long event celebrating everything Halloween and horror-related! We had so much fun last year that we decided to put together the second annual FORTNIGHT OF FRIGHT event! One of our favorite things about the event is that yes, we come up with some posts to talk about our favorite things about Halloween, but it’s also a largely blogger-driven event with guest posts, linking up to reviews, Halloween crafts & recipes, and so much more!
This is our call to all you Halloween-loving bloggers (and authors too!) to participate in A FORTNIGHT OF FRIGHT this year! We would love for you to join us in this fun celebration of the best holiday of the year! (We’re biased.) Please see the form below if you’d like to participate! If you missed it last year or are looking for some ideas for posts, check out the collection of links below the sign-up form! (And don’t mind the old 2012-ness of the graphics and blog posts!)
ALSO — Another awesome Halloween thing you should know about is ALL HALLOW’S READ. All Hallow’s Read is a project started by Neil Gaiman and instead of giving candy on Halloween, participants give out books! This year, Alyssa, Amy (Tripping Over Books) and I will all be exchanging horror, paranormal, or general Halloween-type feel books for All Hallow’s Read! These books are not only exchanges, but we decided to do it present-style so each one we receive will be a SURPRISE and I cannot tell you how excited I am! (Seriously. I spent literally hours scouring Goodreads for the perfect scary books for these ladies! It was a person mission.) We’ll be reading and reviewing throughout the month of October so keep an eye out for those Halloween reviews!

Yay!!! Glad y’all are doing this again! Loved it last year. 🙂
Also, totally love that you, Amy and Alyssa are exchanging books for Halloween! Too cute!
Oh, this is lovely! I don’t know why I thought your Fortnight of Fright was going to just be a read-a-thon… and this is so much better than what I was expecting! I’m always on the lookout for new book recommendations, but the recipes have me particularly excited! Yay, I can’t wait to follow all these posts!
