#FrightFall: FrightFall Read-A-Thon Wrap Up

The FrightFall Read-A-Thon is hosted by Michelle @ The True Book Addict @ Seasons of Reading!!

My Goal:
Since I have so much going on during this first week of October reading-wise, I'm limiting myself to finishing just one book this time.
The Book:

Under My Hat: Tales from the Cauldron

Broomsticks. Black cats. Pointy hats. They can mean only one thing—somewhere nearby, there is sure to be a witch. From fairy tale to film to contemporary fiction, witches cast their spells and capture our imaginations.

Now the biggest names in fantasy and YA literature have come together to create a little magic of their own. Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Diana Peterfreund, Margo Lanagan, Peter S. Beagle, and Garth Nix are just a few of the authors who have toiled over their cauldrons and conjured up bewitching new creations inspired by and celebrating the might and mystery of the witch. Assembled by one of the most well-regarded anthologists in the science fiction/fantasy world, this rich, intelligent collection will enchant readers of all ages.
Read-A-Thon Wrap Up
I wasn't able to finish the whole book because of all the other reading I had to do for tours and read alongs, but I got about half-way done with Under My Hat.
I did end up reading a book that I hadn't expected to read until the week after the read-a-thon that fit perfectly with the theme.  It was a short story that I had to read for a tour called Consumed by Love, and don't let the title fool you. It's a very disturbing read.

Consumed by love 


Consumed by Love is the story of a couple who must face one partner's supernatural transformation. This short piece is written in the style of a classic horror story with a dark take on the addictive nature of love.
