By now I think it is widely known around these parts that I absolutely love Halloween and that October is my favorite month. I just love when the weather finally begins to cool, the leaves change colors, and hot cocoa weather begins! I also find the colder months much more conducive for reading… I find it hard to want to curl up with a book when it is 110F outside. (Goodbye summer!)
My love of the Halloween season is what drew me to want to create something fun for the book blogging community. This has been in the works since before I got involved in BLOGOWEEN, and I am so excited to finally release the information into the world!
SCAREtober is co-hosted by myself and Cassandra @ The Bibliophagist and will run from October 19th – October 31st. SCAREtober aims to celebrate the spooky and the various ways we bookish folk can get into the season with a Bingo game! Event details, rules, and prizes are below!
- Must be 18 or older to win, or have guardian’s permission.
- Prizes are open internationally (so long as Book Depository ships to you).
- Posts only count for the Bingo card if they are posted October 19 – 31.
- Each row that you complete (Bingo) counts as one entry.
- If you post all 13 days you will get a bonus entry.
- The Rafflecopter links will be available starting on October 19th and will close on November 1. You can win only once.
- Winners will be chosen and notified via email by November 3 and will have one week to respond.
And what would a game of Bingo be without prizes? INTERNATIONAL PRIZES!
There will be three different Rafflecopters (one for each prize):
- A book of the winner’s choice from Book Depository ($15 USD, International as long as BD ships to you)
- Two custom bookmarks made by Cassandra (will ship international)
- A Steam key for the horror video game Soma
I love reading and this game definitely brings that love in with a spooky twist. Cassandra and I both hope that you will join us for this fun little game!
