Hello guys! To follow my “tradition” of having a monthly book challenge on Instagram, this month @Xenatine (Christine) and I (@Serialbibliophile) have combined forces to create an amazing challenge following the Halloween theme!
This post will have a quick explanation of all of the prompts in case you have any doubts or need a little help to figure out what to do.
Day 1: Pink for Breast-Cancer Awareness Month – The pink ribbon is the global symbol for breast cancer awareness. Before starting our Halloween festivities, we should take a moment to raise awareness and show our support for women who have fought, survived, or sadly lost the battle to breast cancer.
Day 2: Oktoberfest (TBR) – Let the October festivities begin! Show us your TBR for the month!
Day 3: Fall leaves – Book Ombré – September is all about fall, while October (still fall, duh) is all about Halloween, let’s not forget this amazing time of the year and show some fall colors!
Day 4: Haunting Read – Show us your spooky books, could be mystery, thrillers, ANYTHING that goes alone the halloween theme!
Day 5: Vampires or Werewolves? – This is Twilight all over again haha! Which team are you?
Day 6: Mad Hatter Day – This is a real holiday (that I just learned about), share us the original Mad Hatter, or which characters do you consider to be as mad as him?
Day 7: Book Graveyard – This one could take on many meanings. Could be books following this theme, or books that have “died” for you, maybe a series you’d want to bury away? Get creative!
Day 8: Black & Orange – The main Halloween colors of course!
Day 9: Green & Purple – Some more halloween related colors.
Day 10: Book & Mask – You could literally use a mask as a prop, masked characters, masks as book covers, etc.
Day 11: Twisted Tuesday (Twist your books) – Book spiral anyone? This is the most literal meaning we can give you, but we love it when people twist our words and get creative!
Day 12: Murder Mystery – Books following the theme. Murder, Mystery, both? Yes!
Day 13: Chapter 13th – “Friday the 13th” – Show us the Chapter 13 of a book! Could be your favorite read, or maybe just the book you’re currently reading? Who cares, Jason is coming SO HURRY UP!
Day 14: Suicide Squad – Team up with a villain – Hell yeah, we are making up our own supervillain team mwahaha. Well…… maybe we’re not that evil, but let’s pretend for a day!
Day 15: Bloody Reds – Red books, books with blood, etc. just make it red!
Day 16: Spooky Sock Sunday – Just a regular sock sunday following our halloween theme!
Day 17: Monday Mystery – Show us a Mystery Book!
Day 18: Creepy Vibes (Book Cover) – Show us a book cover that is VERY CREEPY! Or maybe the title or some other illustration gives you a creepy vibe.

Day 20: Dark Title – A book with a title that’s dark, evil, or halloween related.
