FrightFall Read-a-Thon Update 2

It's now almost the end of the fifth day of the FrightFall Read-a-Thon, and I'm still reading The Witching Hour by Anne Rice and the audiobook of The Woman in Black by Susan Hill.

Since update 1 (two days ago), I've only read 42 more pages of The Witching Hour, bringing to up to page 447. I'm still enjoying this one, but it's at a bit of a slower part right now (basically I'm reading a report by the Talamasca on the history of the Mayfair family), so I am finding my pace slowing.

I lost track of how much of The Woman in Black I've listened to, but I think it's been about an hour to an hour and a half. I have a little over an hour left of it, so I should finish it this weekend. It's definitely less scary than the movie (maybe I just need to listen to it in a better environment than the bus), but the writing is very nice and the reader is excellent.

Happy reading, and have a good long weekend (assuming you live in Canada, or somewhere else that has a long weekend now)!


  1. Hi There! So - based on what you've read so far, do you recommend "The Witching Hour"? I've been meaning to read it as it's been on my TBR pile for ages -- and your "Towering Pile" has made my "Towering Pile" larger on a few occasions!



    1. Hi Sally! I definitely do recommend The Witching Hour.

      I'm happy I've added to your Towering Pile! Unless it's as out of control as mine, in which case, I'm sorry! :)

  2. Someone nearby was nominated for a Booker Award. Oh-Oh it's you!
