#FridayFrightAThon will be co-hosted with these lovely ladies: Melanie @ Meltotheany, Jen @ Pinot and Pages, & Chelsea @ Chelsea Palmer. ❤


I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara: October 5th, 2018

Okay, so we’re kicking off our read-along with a true crime thriller about the investigation of the Golden State Killer (also known as EAR/ONS: East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker.) This case has spanned decades and the killer was finally caught earlier this year through familial DNA. Sadly the author, Michelle McNamara, passed away two years ago before she got to see the killer brought to justice. I am high key excited for this book.

The reading breakdown for this book is:
October 5th: Pages 1 – 51
October 6th: Pages 52 – 107
October 7th: Pages 108 – 168
October 8th: Pages 169 – 234 (up to “Walnut Creek”)
October 9th: Pages 234 – 283
October 10th: Pages 284 – 328

The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware: October 12th, 2018

I enjoyed In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 despite its polarizing reviews, but I have heard great things about this one. I think Ruth Ware is great at building these Agatha Christie-esque mysteries where there are a group of suspects trapped in one place and we have to figure out whodunnit. I actually have NO idea if this book will be set up that same way, but that’s how her previous books (that I’ve read) are structured. I have high hopes for this one!

The reading breakdown for this book is:
October 12th: Pages 1 – 60 (Chapter 9)
October 13th: Pages 61 – 124 (Chapter 16)
October 14th: Pages 125 – 185 (Chapter 23)
October 15th: Pages 186 – 248 (Chapter 34)
October 16th: Pages 249 – 304 (Chapter 43)
October 17th: Pages 305 – 368 (End!)

If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio: October 19th, 2018

This book has such high ratings and the premise sounds the most intriguing to me: A man who was formerly part of a Shakespearean acting troupe is released from jail and bears his confession to a detective about the dark, twisted things that went on in the theater.

The reading breakdown for this book is:
October 19th: Act I (Pages 1 – 79)
October 20th: Act II (Pages 83 – 141)
October 21st: Act III, Scenes 1 – 8 (Pages 145 – 189)
October 22nd: Act III, Scenes 9 – 18 (Pages 190 – 244)
October 23rd: Act IV (Pages 247 – 296)
October 24th: Act V (Pages 299 – 354)

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager: October 26th, 2018

I legit don’t even know what this is about because I’ve been avoiding reading the synopsis! (I tend to do this with mysteries/thrillers) But I am probably one of the few people who liked Final Girls lmao. I mean, it wasn’t my favorite by any means, but I still enjoyed reading it. Again, I’ve heard polarizing things about this book, but I’m really excited to dive back into another Riley Sager book!

The reading breakdown for this book is:
October 26th: Pages 1 – 62 (Chapter 6)
October 27th: Pages 63 – 128 (Chapter 13)
October 28th: Pages 129 – 191 (Chapter 20)
October 29th: Pages 192 – 252 (Chapter 26)
October 30th: Pages 253 – 311 (Chapter 32)
October 31st: Pages 312 – 370 (Chapter 44)

Okay! That’s it! I really hope you’ll join our buddy readathon/readalong/whatever you want to call it! We have page breakdowns, but please DO NOT feel any pressure to stay on schedule! Please read at whatever pace you want. We want this to be super laid back and just have fun. And I’m going to be super careful about mentioning anything spoilery during the whole month! Hope to see you all in October ❤
