2017 Horror Reading Challenge

Yeah, yeah so I know I said I was finished signing up for challenges but I LIE. I saw this over on the Scifi and Scary blog and figured I'd join since it seems doable and also a good way to weed out some of those ancient horror novels in my TBR dungeon.

Eeeeeeek! And that's only one shelf.

Anyway, it should coincide nicely with the Horror Aficionados Challenges I've signed up for over at Goodreads. Anyone want to join me?

Here are all the details:

2017 Horror Reading Challenge

First of all are the Challenge Badges, which you will win by completing the highest number of books for that level. I will list them below and they will be e-mailed to you at the conclusion of the challenge.


Neophyte of Coolthulhu’s Temple:  Read and review 1-7 horror books

Initiate of Coolthulhu’s Temple:     Read and review 8-15

Oracle of Coolthulhu’s Temple:       Read and review 20-25 horror books

MYSTERY BADGE     Read and review 50+ horror books

There Are Rules to This Game…

  1. I'm so bad at remembering to link up reviews to online challenges and so on that I stopped doing these things! I'll be cheering you on and watching your progress!

    1. I'm terrible at these too but I will try to do better this year.

  2. Cool. I'm horrible at remembering to link up the reviews, so I try to limit my challenges, but I'll gladly take part in this and the GR challenge.

    1. They seem easy enough but I'll surely screw them up ;)

  3. Ohhh. Good luck with this one. I only have the guts for one or two a year. Lol.

  4. Yeah - good for you. Looks like we'll be having fun together. So glad you joined too!
