I was incredibly excited when I saw that Alyssa and Tiffy were asking for cohosts for a readathon inspired by one of my absolute FAVORITE movies, Hocus Pocus! The readathon is being held from October 1st to October 13th, and to make it even more fun, we're splitting up into three teams inspired by the movie. Each team has their own goal, strength, and weakness, with different prompts inspired by their characters.
TeamsTeam Sanderson Sisters is being led by Alyssa, Jackie, and Larissa! Since the sisters are witches, their strength gives them the ability to cast one spell and add five points to one prompt. However, because they want to capture children, they need to read either a Young Adult or Middle Grade book to learn about them. When the Sisters earn 50 points, they are able to complete their goal and cast their spell to become immortal.
Team Trick or Treaters (Max, Allison, and Dani) is being led by Tiffy, Norman, and Kalyn! Because they're defeating witches, they earn an extra two points for each book that they read with a witch character in it. However, they need to stay up all night to stop the sisters, so they must complete a 24-hour readathon. If they earn 50 points, they save the day!
Last but not least, Team Undead (Billy Butcherson and Thackery Binx) is being led by Stephanie and myself! Billy accidentally lost his hand and when he picked it up, it was holding a different prompt, so we're able to switch one of our prompts with another team's! However, because we're stuck in a cemetary, we have to read at least one of our books as we stay put in one spot. 50 points later, we get rid of these witches and finally get to enjoy a nice peaceful eternal sleep!
Each team has a prompt that asks them to read one of the group books. While there are two different books, participants are only being asked to read one. Our two books are Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin and Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel by A.W. Jantha!
Luckily for us, we have our very own spellbook for the readathon that contains all of the information and prompts! Click here to find it! We also have a Twitter, where we will be hosting reading sprints! If you join along, make a TBR or announcement post or video, please share it and tag us! We have been retweeting them and we'd honestly love to see it. The other hosts and I are incredibly excited, and we hope that you join us!
Lastly, I want to stress that the other hosts are also bookish content creators, either book bloggers or booktubers, and I sincerely hope that you follow their Twitters and the media that they post their content to. Each one has a link in their Twitter bio for you to check out.
Thank you very much for reading this! I hope you join Team Undead because we are going to KILL THIS READATHON!
