I am signed up to participate in the Trick-or-Treat-Athon that takes place from October 1st to October 31st, 2019. This Readathon is hosted by @meoples92 on Twitter and Instagram. Full information for readathon found at: https://twitter.com/ToT_athon
There are 3 teams to choose from in this Readathon. You can either be on Team Ghost, Team Vampire, or Team Witch/Wizard. These teams are hosted by various different hosts listed on the @ToT_athon Twitter page.
I personally chose to be on Team Witch/Wizard.
There are 8 different prompts for the TOT-athon and each team has their own Trick and their own Treat to go along with these prompts. I will only be listing the Witch/Wizard prompts & Trick & Treat as this is the team I chose.
- Costume Party: Read the group book: Coraline by Neil Gaiman

- Fall Foliage: Read a book with Fall colors on the cover. (Red, Yellow, Green, or Brown)
